Padua Partners with AVI Fresh
Starting with the 2019-2020 school year, Padua Franciscan High School has embarked on a new partnership with AVI Fresh, a customized food service company. Padua students, faculty and staff members now have the option to purchase nutritious lunches, snacks and beverages throughout the school day.
The new food program will not disrupt our current lunch process, but will instead offer more daily lunch options such as three new food stations and new items such as the “Build Your Own Bruin Bowl.” The process is simple, and will be explained to students at the beginning of the school year. Students will now go through the purchase line with their lunch selection and then simply swipe their school ID, eliminating the need for cash (although this is still an acceptable form of payment) and speedup the lunch line. For your convenience, weekly menus and lunch costs will be available for viewing on our website.
You can load money onto your student’s ID card and replenish it as necessary in one simple process.
For your convenience, PaySchools Central is now available to Padua. Working in conjunction with AVI Fresh, our food service provider, PaySchools Central makes it possible for parents/guardians to create an online prepayment account for their student to use in our cafeteria, eliminating the need for students to carry cash.
PaySchools Central can be accessed via an online portal: www.payschoolscentral.com or via convenient mobile app.

**When you add your student to the account you will need their Student ID.
Their student ID is 8 digits and begins with their graduation year. The student ID can be found in the following places:
- Padua student ID card card
- MyPad account
If the student logs into their MyPad account, the student should click on their name in the upper left corner and choose Profile and then they will see their Student ID in the General Information box.
If the parent logs into MyPad, click on your child’s name and then choose Contact Card. You will see their student ID number underneath gender in the General Information box.
