Meal Service at BISW

BISW offers delicious, healthy, lunch service each day provided by Flik Independent School Dining.

  • Year 1 students enjoy lunch from Flik

BISW partnered with Flik Independent School Dining to provide delicious, healthy, and locally sourced meal service for students and staff. This service will be enhanced in fall 2018 with the opening of a newly renovated dining hall and kitchen facilities.

Learn more about the daily menu and Flik at our school online at .Vegetarian options are available daily. Nuts and Pork are never served as part of the school lunch offerings.

Flik offers two options for meal service: meal plans and a la carte food purchases.

Meal Plans

Meal plans allow students to eat lunch every school day of the year or term for a flat price. Each combo meal includes an entree, two sides, a dessert, and a drink. Students on the meal plan enjoy a reduced price per meal, compared with students who purchase a meal a la carte.

You can sign up for a meal plan online.

A la Carte Meals

If you prefer to eat meals from our dining hall periodically, Flik offers a la carte pricing of combo meals (an entree, two sides, dessert, and a drink) or any portion of a combo meal. There are also a number of quick-service packaged items available for a la carte service.

Purchasing A la Carte service

Buying food a la carte from the dining hall provides flexibility for children who don't want a school meal every day.  Each combo meal is priced a little higher in a la carte service, than if you purchased a meal plan.

Paying for a la carte food can be done in a variety of methods.

  • Cash or Check at the register (debit and credit cards once the new dining hall opens)
  • Using a declining balance of My School Bucks

My School Bucks is a service that allows parents to add money to a child's school account to purchase food from the dining hall. Parents can create a My School Bucks account online, choose our school, add their children to their account using their name and date of birth, and add money to the account online via credit card. Parents can see a record of their child's purchases online. You can also add money to your child's My School Bucks account in-person, at the register, with cash or check.

You can compare meal plan prices and a la carte prices on the Flik pricing guide. Please note some menu items on the pricing guide will not be available until the new dining hall opens.
