Important Notice

Our ordering system for Hot Lunches has been reconfigured so that orders must be paid in advance to be processed. Starting next week (January 26th) orders that have not been paid before Monday at 9am will be automatically deleted from the system. This means that if you have not submitted your payment before Monday at 9am, there will be no food order for your child/children that week. Pay Pal payments that show as pending are considered paid. These orders will be filled. Thank you for your cooperation.
