Food Service Q&A
The school lunch service runs Monday–Thursday throughout the year. Lunch service begins Monday September 12th and ends June 8th. A great deal of volunteer support, planning, thought, and nutritional consideration go into our lunch program. Composting food waste and providing compostable plates, utensils, and napkins are one of the many ways we model and teach social responsibility to our students. Our kitchen is a designated prep kitchen; therefore, all of our food is brought in by outside vendors. We thank the local businesses that we purchase from including: Bend Pizza Kitchen, La Rosa, Bend Soup Company, and New York City Sub Shop. It is our goal to provide a healthy lunch that our students will enjoy.
Food4All is our on-line lunch ordering platform. You will receive an email from Food4All containing your login information on Monday August 29th. Please follow the instructions to set up your password, credit/debit card information, and student. Lunch can be ordered weekly, monthly or the whole year. Please note lunch orders are due by Wednesday 5pm for the following Monday. Lunch orders for the week September 12th are due Thursday September 9th by 5pm.
All lunches include our unlimited salad bar, which includes a variety of fruits and vegetables. We serve pizza Monday, taco/burrito Tuesday, soup Wednesday, and subs on Thursday.
Yes, you can order milk and/or one trip through the salad bar on Food4All. When you purchase hot lunch, salad bar is included. Milk is not included in hot lunch.
If you child forgets to bring a lunch, he/she may go through the lunch line and get a mac and cheese along with fruit and vegetables from the salad bar. The cost is $3.00. You will receive an email letting you know there was a forgotten lunch and to drop off $3.00 to the office.
The Snack Shack is open during lunch and offers milk, healthy snacks, and Bounce Bars. Items range in price from $.50 to $1.
There are many ways to volunteer, weekly, bi-weekly, or be on the occasional sub list. If you would like to volunteer with serving lunch please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org along with your availability. The parent volunteers who help serve your children each day join me in welcoming you back to a new school year and we look forward to seeing your smiling kiddos soon!
