Hot Lunch at St. John School

Link to order Hot Lunch Service

Check the calendar or teacher page for your student’s upcoming field trips.

The first year of lunch service in Crispin’s Kitchen was a true testament to the power of community. The school’s mission of providing affordable meals, cooked from scratch with the freshest ingredients, was made possible by a dedicated staff and generous volunteers. We are most grateful for the new kitchen and all those who have contributed to the success of the program. Hot Lunch service is available Tuesdays-Fridays throughout the year. Mondays are designated as either Hot Dog Mondays or Pizza Fundraiser Lunches. All lunches for the month are ordered through the school’s hot lunch portal. As the program continues to evolve, we are happy to introduce the following enhancements to 2017-2018 school year.

  • Chef Michael will be working with locally owned Charlie’s Produce to prepare meals with the best fresh fruits and vegetables
  • Smith Brothers Farms milk will be available on the lunch menu (students with sack lunches can order milk, too)
  • Enhancements to the ordering portal will continue to create positive user experience

Volunteer in the Kitchen

St. John is able to provide affordable and high quality meals due largely to the support of our volunteers.
