Hot Lunch

Order Hot Lunch Now    

The school’s mission of providing affordable meals, cooked from scratch with the freshest ingredients, is made possible by a dedicated staff and generous volunteers. We are most grateful to those who have contributed to the success of the program.

All lunches for the month are ordered through the school’s hot lunch portal.  The program will continue to work with locally owned Charlie’s Produce to prepare meals with the best fresh fruits and vegetables. Milk is included in the meal.

Monthly Lunch Calendar:     June 2024     May 2024     April 2024     March 2024     

Watch NewsViews for open/close dates or check the ordering portal. Orders are placed on a monthly basis. (Example: Ordering for November opens and closes in October.)
