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.
Curbside Pick-up During Covid-19
To-go lunches will be available for curb-side pick-up Tuesdays and Thursdays starting September 15. Our dedicated hot lunch staff has put in place additional precautions to minimize risk of illness while preparing student meals. Sanitation and distancing practices will be followed in accordance with CDC and Public Health-Seattle & King county guidelines. Meals will be prepared, boxed, and available for pick-up on 79th St. between 11:15am-12:15pm, Tuesdays and Thursdays. Meals must be taken off-site rather than eaten at the school.
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 or water are included in the meal.
- The ordering portal opens on the second Wednesday of each month and closes the last Thursday of the month at midnight. Watch NewsViews for open/close dates or check the ordering portal.
- Orders are placed on a monthly basis. (Example: Ordering for November opens on Wednesday, October 11, and closes on Thursday, October 26, at 11:58pm)

Volunteer in the Kitchen
St. John is able to provide affordable and high-quality meals due largely to the support of our volunteers. During Covid-19 there are limited volunteer opportunities for meal preparation. A Food Workers card is required to work in the lunchroom. Interested in volunteering with the lunch program? Contact firstname.lastname@example.org
