Hot Lunch | OLPH School

Hot Lunch

Welcome OLPH Families
The Abundance Catering Company has had the privilege of being the lunch provider at Our Lady of Perpetual Help School since 2013. Our menus are designed to please both parents and kids – fruits, vegetables, salads, scratched-prepared hot meals, as well as chicken nuggets, (oven) fries, and, of course, fresh-baked cookies! Each day we will offer both an a la carte menu of hot and cold items as well as a “Meal Special”. The Special will be a combination of an entrée, two sides, and a beverage at a savings over the a la carte prices.

Purchasing Lunch

Abundance does not accept cash payments during the lunch period. Rather, lunches are ordered online only. In addition, orders are placed for one month at a time and always during the previous month. For example, September’s lunches are ordered in August, October’s lunches are ordered in September, and so on. By the 1st of every month, you will receive an email letting you know that the menu for the following month is posted and ready for ordering. In addition, this email will inform you of the deadline (typically the 22nd – 25th). For example, we sent an email on August 1st announcing the September menu has been posted and the deadline to order is midnight on Sunday, August 25th.

We encourage you to create an Abundance-HLO account even if you’re not sure you will order any lunches. There is no cost to register and no order minimums. It’s also a great way to peruse our menu and get your kids involved in planning their meals. And cancellations are easy – simply call or email us by 8:00am the day-of to receive a credit. Here are instructions to get started:

Food Allergies & Sensitivities

NUTS: We do not serve any foods or use any ingredients that contain nuts; however, our cookie dough and brownies come from a manufacturer who states that they are made on equipment that may contain traces of nuts due to possible cross-contamination via equipment;
