Lunch Ordering Q&A
Here are answers to some frequently asked questions about our Hot Lunch Program.
Question: Why are we asking parents to pre-order lunches?
As you know, All Saints does not have a kitchen. In order to provide students with a hot lunch option, we use a catering service. It is a huge burden to ask our caterer to plan for meals without knowing how much food to prepare. Therefore, we are asking parents to plan ahead as a courtesy to the caterer. This year will be more important than ever to pre-order because the caterer will not be bringing extra lunches. If lunch is not ordered a brown bag will be provided.
Question: What is my deadline for ordering the catered lunches?
The caterer needs one-week notice for lunches. Every Thursday will be the deadline to order lunches for the following week. You will not be able to order lunches for that same week.
Question: Can I edit my order?
You can edit/update your order any time until the deadline for that ordering period.
Question: If I have pre-ordered a lunch, and my child is absent, will I be charged?
Yes, you will be charged for a lunch if your child is absent. The caterer has already paid for the food you ordered.
Question: If I have pre-ordered a lunch, and my child has changed their mind about eating the catered lunch, will I be charged?
You will be charged if you have ordered lunch and your child is present at school that day. You may still send a sack lunch, but you will be charged for the catered lunch.
Question: If I forget to pre-order a lunch or send a lunch, what will my child eat?
For now, if your child arrives at school without a lunch and without having pre-ordered a lunch, they will receive a brown bag lunch for $4.00.
Question: What's in the brown bag lunch?
The brown bag lunch will contain non-perishable items decided on by the caterer.
Question: What if my child has special dietary requirements and can't eat what is in the brown bag lunch?
If your child can't eat what is provided in the brown bag lunch, you will be called to bring them a lunch.
Question: Do I need to pre-order milk?
Yes, please pre-order milk. This is important for planning purposes.
Question: Why isn't milk included in the catered lunch?
A great deal of milk has been wasted in years past by students who did not want their milk.
Question: If I don't order milk, what beverage choices are available?
Students will be given water. They may bring their own water bottle to refill, or they will receive a cup of water.
Question: How can I see my lunch balance?
