Hot Lunch Program
Ms. Kris McKenzie, caterer, provides our hot lunch program with meals prepared in our kitchen daily.
Our primary objective is to provide good lunches that are high in nutritional value and interesting to the kids. We strive to offer fresh, seasonal and locally-sourced foods. As you may know, there are FDA guidelines for school lunches, which if followed precisely, allow the school to recoup a portion of the costs. After careful discussion, we opted not to be limited by these guidelines in order to create a more interesting menu that will satisfy the kids while still providing balanced nutrition. We will pay careful attention to food allergy requirements. All lunch staff are ServSafe Certified food service professionals who have completed appropriate background checks and the Diocesan Virtus requirements.
Free and Reduced lunch option will still be offered to those who qualify. We ask all families who fall into the income categories to please return the free/reduced application. All information will be held in confidentiality within the school office. Ordering and payment will be handled by school staff only without children involvement. Those families who qualified last school year will carry over through in August. New forms will be available in August and must be completed by August 30th to prequalify for the new school year.
Parents must order online and then send a payment a month in advance.
