New Hot Lunch Vendor
Welcome back Lord Kitchener families. We hope you had a great summer and are looking forward to the new school year.
We are excited to announce that we have a new hot lunch vendor for this school year – Carino Catering. We received feedback from parents asking for a greater variety of food choices and we selected Carino Catering for the options they have available. They provide hot lunch programs to several schools in Vancouver, with a variety of healthy and multicultural menu options. They individually package the lunch for each student, in biodegradable containers.
Our hot lunch program is a fundraiser for Lord Kitchener and a portion of every lunch purchased goes toward funds for our school. Here are the details:
Days: Monday & Friday
Ordering: Orders can be placed weekly online using MunchaLunch.com. Deadline for ordering is midnight Thursday for the following week (no exceptions). You can order weekly or up to 3 months in advance.
Payment: Payment will be made online using MunchaLunch.
Format: Lunch will be prepared individually in biodegradable containers for each student with their name and division number. Each division will receive their lunch and it will be distributed to the students by parent volunteers in the designated lunch areas.
Menu: There will be 4 main course menu options from which to choose; menu options will be changed monthly, so if you don’t see something you like in the first month, visit the site again.
Utensils: In an effort to reduce our use of plastic we ask that you must send utensils to school with your children. Please note, Carino Catering or the school will not be providing utensils with the lunch.
Refunds: There will be no refunds if your child is absent on hot lunch day.
Please note, if you forget to order hot lunch by the deadline your child will not have hot lunch the following week. Unlike last year, there will not be any extra meals available.
We look forward to kicking off hot lunch onFriday September 27th. A separate email with login and ordering details will be provided. If you have any questions please email either Ashley Horlock at firstname.lastname@example.org or Tina Exarchoulis at email@example.com
We would like to thank Eric and his team from C’est Mon Café who provided our hot lunch for the last few years.
