Our food supply is ordered in advance each month from Gordon Foods and delivered each week to our school. We also use a few local markets for the needed fresh items. Our own licensed kitchen staff cooks and prepares the food in our fully equipped school kitchen and volunteers help serve.
Menu and Ordering: Our orders are placed on a monthly basis for both elementary and middle school. We use an online ordering site that will notify those that are registered when the menus are available via the email that each family assigns to their account. We typically have the menu available for ordering 2 weeks prior to a new month. We accept cash, check or money order. We also offer the availability to use PayPal when ordering; there is a small fee to use this service. There are no ala carte orders for those that order from the K-5 menu.
Cost: Students pay $2.50 per lunch at the elementary level and middle school is an ala carte menu with prices that vary depending on the items being served each week. If a family qualifies for the State Free/Reduced program we do offer that for the K-5 families. The forms to qualify for this program are in the office.
Milk: Milk is provided to every student regardless if they order hot lunch or bring their lunch. The cost of milk is included in school tuition. If you have a child with milk allergies, we will provide a form for you to fill out that will allow us to serve an alternate beverage such as juice.
Volunteers: Parents and Grandparents are invited and encouraged to sign up to help serve and clean up. Shifts are available Monday through Friday from 11:30 AM to 1 PM.
