WHO CAN BELIEVE THAT WINTER IS UPON US ONCE AGAIN?
It’s time for cold noses, boots and scarves, ice skates and hockey sticks, skis, boards and toboggans and snowmen. And it’s time for HOT FOOD. Every School Day, our Lunch Ladies and Lunch Guys are up early, busily preparing the perfect foods for the Winter Season to warm up the tummies of your children. Our menu has something for everyone, and we welcome you to enjoy a good lunch from our kitchens.
As the New Year approaches, we wish you and your family health and happiness and the joys of the Holiday Season.
Check out the menu overview below for some item highlights. Please be sure to check your school’s paper menu or our online ordering site for details and additional menu items.
MENU THEME – WINTER COMFORT FARE
Our Best Value Combos
We selected some of our most popular items and created perfectly balanced combos that will be sure to please your child’s taste buds and your wallet. Our complete lunches include a healthier side and 100% juice. Choose from grilled cheese, buttery pasta parmesan or our yummy pancakes.
Fun Boxes Are Changing To Fun Bags
Our Fun Boxes have been so popular this year that we ran out of them. Watch for our NEW decorated Kraft Mini Shopping Bag that is made of recycled sturdy paper and can be enjoyed after lunch is over. Each FUN Bag still includes an entree, fruit or raw veggie, 100% juice and small sweet treat. Choose from all white chicken nuggets or a beef hamburger. Many kitchens offer Halal and Vegetarian versions of the Fun Bag
