MA Cafe & Food Service

The Epicurean Group provides the MA community with fresh, natural, and organic food prepared from scratch, every day at every meal.

We are a local company whose employees possess unparalleled experience and skill. We start with the finest ingredients possible. We simply love what we do; we believe that it is our calling to serve and provide healthy, fresh, delicious food that will nourish the body and the minds of your student.

All of our café produce comes from farms right here in Marin County and the Bay Area. We offer organic produce according to the Environmental Working Group's recommendations for fruits and vegetables lower in pesticide residue. All meat, poultry and eggs will be sourced from local farms and ranches that have met our high standards and we offer all natural cheeses. Our seafood is purchased according to the Monterey Bay Aquarium’s Seafood Watch guidelines. Learn more about Epicurean Group.


Paying for School Meals

We are happy to offer an easy-to-use, smart-phone friendly, cashless payment program at Marin Academy called MySchoolBucks. MySchoolBucks allows you to pay in advance for meals and/or snacks and beverages.
Create your MySchoolBucks account to conveniently and securely add money to your student’s meal account online or with the mobile app. This allows us to focus on serving meals as fast and efficiently as possible. With MySchoolBucks you’ll also be able to view cafeteria purchases, check your student’s balance, and receive low balance alerts. Please note: the per-load up fee on MySchoolBucks is now $2.75.
Set up your account:
  1. Go to or download the mobile app.
  2. Create your free account and add your students using their school name and 7-digit student ID number, which can be found on their  MyMA Profile page.
  3. Add funds using your credit / debit card or electronic check. Note: For each transaction, you will be charged a program fee.
  4. Set up automatic payments and never let your student run out of funds.

If you need assistance with your account, you can find helpful how-to videos and answers to commonly asked questions by visiting, contacting MySchoolBucks directly by logging into your account to start a chat, or giving them a call at (855) 832-5226. Other questions can be directed to the Café Manager, Lise Eisenberg, on her cell at (415) 328-9940 or via email.

Thank you for your cooperation and your participation. We are excited to serve fresh, natural, and organic food to nourish the body and minds of your teen.

Lise Eisenberg, Café Manager, and Jim Julian, District Manager
