Dining Service

Flik Independent School Dining is pleased to be a part of the St. Mary’s Episcopal School community. We are the premier provider of food services for more than 165 private and independent schools. We pride ourselves in preparing high-quality dishes from fresh ingredients. The menus are constantly changing in order to meet your daughter’s needs. Different soups, entrees, vegetarian items, deli selections, and a bountiful salad bar are featured each day, enabling your daughter to obtain a well-balanced meal.

Lunch Menus

Being ever mindful of the cultural and dietary preferences of a diverse student body, faculty, and staff, our menus are created on-site by the St. Mary’s food service management team. Weekly menus may be viewed:

  • On FLIK's website
  • Through the mySchool Dining app (search for St. Mary's Episcopal School)
  • On the St.Mary'sMem app

Meal Plan Program

We are pleased to offer a complete meal program, enabling St. Mary’s girls to have a sound, nutritious lunch every day. Your daughter will receive an entrée and three sides with a choice of juice, milk, tea, or infused water. An entrée can be a sandwich, large salad, bowl of soup, or entrée of the day. Every day there is a vegetarian entrée option as well. Sides are a vegetable, fruit, small salad, cup of soup, small bags of chips, or dessert. À la carte items such as carrots and hummus, scones, large bags of chips, and bottled beverages are marked and available for an additional charge through the declining balance program.

Declining Balance Plans (see next tab) may also be purchased as a supplement to a meal plan for à la carte items like bottled beverages or second helpings. If your daughter is in upper school, a declining balance account is required to purchase a morning snack after chapel.

You may pay for a meal plan by check made payable to Flik Dining along with this form. Please either mail or deliver a check to St. Mary’s c/o Flik Dining by the first day of the semester along with the meal plan form.

Note: If your daughter is a senior, you might consider enrolling her in the fall semester plan and then purchasing single-day lunches à la carte in the spring since her last full day of school will be three weeks prior to the official end of school.

Declining Balance Program & Account

For your convenience, we also offer a declining balance program. A declining balance may be used to purchase individual lunches or to supplement your daughter's meal plan for à la carte items like bottled beverages or second helpings. Declining balance dollars can also be used to buy ice cream – a special treat on Fridays on the Moss Hall campus. On both campuses, ice cream is offered as the meal plan’s dessert on Fridays, but even if your daughter is not on the meal plan, she can buy ice cream using a declining balance account. If your daughter is in the Upper School, she can buy snacks after chapel with declining balance dollars.

You may add money to your daughter’s declining balance account at any time by one of three ways:

  • Send a check with your daughter for her to give to the cashier in the dining hall.
  • Mail a check to St. Mary’s c/o Flik Dining. To note, this may take a couple of days to be applied to your daughter’s account. Also, you will not see the check deposit on MySchoolBucks, but you will see the balance increase.
  • Log on to www.MySchoolBucks.com and pay by echeck or credit or debit card. To log on, you will need your daughter’s PIN, which will be emailed to you by Flik in early August. (For returning students, this PIN will be the same number as for the previous school year.) Please note, only $70 may be added at a time, and there is a $2 convenience fee.

Any funds left over at the end of the school year in a declining balance account will roll into the next school year.

HOW DOES MY DAUGHTER BUY LUNCH WITH FLIK?
Students pay for dining hall purchases by either having a meal plan or through a declining balance account.

Cash is not accepted.

WHAT IF MY DAUGHTER IS NOT ON A MEAL PLAN AND DOES NOT HAVE SUFFICIENT FUNDS IN HER ACCOUNT TO BUY LUNCH?
If your daughter is not on a meal plan and does not have sufficient funds in her declining balance account to buy lunch, we will allow her to buy lunch the first day and send a note home with her, asking that you add funds to her account. If your daughter continues not to have funds on her account, you will need to send her with lunch from home.

WHAT IF I DON’T WANT MY DAUGHTER TO BE ABLE TO CHARGE ITEMS ON A DECLINING BALANCE ACCOUNT?
If you do not want your daughter to be able to charge à la carte items, please do not add money to a declining balance account. However, if your daughter has a positive dining balance that carries forward from the previous school year, she will be able to use these funds. To learn if she has a positive balance, please log on to www.MySchoolBucks.com. Also, when deciding whether or not to fund a declining balance account for your daughter, please review the “Snack Fees” tab above to ensure you understand how morning snacks are provided per grade.
