Hot Lunch Program


General Information and Getting Started Welcome-The hot lunch program provides hot lunches 5 days a week with an al a carte focus and a small portion choice for the elementary students or for anyone who prefers a smaller amount of food. As well, we have a regular size choice and prices are minimal enough to order 2 of some items for the middle school students. To view product information, ingredients, and allergy information, visit the nurse’s page. Hot lunch will start on the first day of school with our 2 returning vendors Chick fil A on Wednesday and The Abundance Catering Company on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday.  Fruit and/or vegetables will be offered every day along with milk. A few new things will be added this school year.  Yogurt and cheese stick will be available on every Abundance catering day along with a smaller apple portion. Also, new entrees will be introduced, chicken pot pie and teriyaki chicken with rice. Look for more of your favorites and some additional surprises. Currently, you can only order one month at a time with the exception of August/September and May/June.

Online ordering from the menu at begins the 1st of the month and closes at midnight on the 19th of each month (unless specified differently). Please remember: do not order on field trip days which will be listed on the calendar menu page above the menu items on the days they are scheduled. Field trips are usually scheduled in October, November and then, again in the Spring.  For possible snow days/school cancellations, hot lunches will be rescheduled to another day and you will be notified of the change.
