Hot lunches are prepared onsite and
served daily in our Aquinas Center cafeteria.
Our cafeteria staff does an excellent job providing a variety of quality,
kid-friendly, portion appropriate lunches while staying within a budget.
Hot lunch will be served daily during the year.
An order form will be sent home every two weeks and needs to be returned with payment by Wednesday for the following week in an envelope marked with the student’s name, grade, and “Hot Lunch.”
An important part of the success of our hot lunch program is the “pre-order” system that allows us to purchase only and prepare exactly what is needed each day without any waste. Families may pre-order for half of the school year or may pre-order for the entire school year in advance and receive a significant discount.
We request that payment be made by check. Any menus returned after the specified date and time will be returned to the parent and the student will not receive hot lunch that week.
LUNCH ROOM VOLUNTEERS
Volunteer opportunities are available in the cafeteria.
Parent volunteers help us keep down the cost of school lunch.
We need help with morning preparation, mealtime serving and especially for after lunch clean up. Volunteering is a great way to support our school and provide a unique opportunity for parents to sneak a peek at their child’s day at school. Students are very proud of their parents who volunteer in the cafeteria.
If you would like to Volunteer, please contact our Safe Enironment Coordinator.

For those students who purchase lunch every day throughout the year, prices for ordering lunch for the half or full year will be available in the summer packet.
Parents are encouraged to prepay milk for the year.
NO REFUNDS OR CREDITS WILL BE GIVEN FOR ABSENCES, or missed for any reason.
In addition to the record keeping, food has already been purchased to feed a given number of students on each day of the week. Therefore, funds have already been used and will not be refunded.
In the case of an emergency, students are allowed to purchase lunch for $5.
Students who bring lunch from home will not be allowed to heat food in the cafeteria during lunch time.
No students are allowed in the kitchen for health and safety reasons.
