Hip Hip Hooray! – Hot Lunch Ordering is Now Open!

Variety is the spice of life, which is why hot lunches are a great way to add healthy and tasty alternatives to your child’s lunches. So give your self a break, the kids a treat and help your PAC all in one shot. It’s a WIN, WIN, WIN situation! Not to mention nearly all prices have been reduced this year making hot lunch a more affordable option for our families.
Hot lunch ordering from September through January is now open! The first hot lunch is on September 30th, and the deadline to place orders is September 27th.

Did you know? Aside from the Direct Appeal campaign, Hot Lunch is the most significant revenue source for your PAC. Proceeds from Hot Lunch go to buying books for the library, physical education activities, technology, and more! Please help us support our children’s educational environment.
All the usual favourites are back and each one meets VSB health food guidelines. Choose from:
– pizza and mac ‘n cheese from Rocky Mountain Flatbread Company
– baked chicken samosas and vegetarian samosas from Choices Market on 16th Avenue
– spaghetti and meatballs, salads and fruit cups from FUEL Catering which specialises in healthy hot lunches
– and maki rolls are back! (California and cucumber rolls)
To order go to trafalgar.hotlunches.net
The access code is TE2016HL
You must register each new school year. So, even if you have registered in the past, please register again for this school year.
