Hot Lunch for Session 2 is OPEN NOW!
ORDER HOT LUNCH
Hello Queensbury Families,
Happy New Year!
We are happy to bring back the Hot Lunch program for session 2.
The hot lunch program will resume on January 24th! As Session 1 just closed yesterday, there is a very quick turn around time to order your lunches for Session 2.
The deadline to order for the first hot lunch on Jan 24 is January 16th, 2020. As usual you can order one lunch at a time (minimum 8 days in advance) or lunches for the whole session. (Note: payment must be made at the time of your order, if payment is not made, your order will auto cancel)
How to order Hot lunch
What are the deadlines to order Hot Lunch?
Please note that the deadline to order is on JANUARY 16th (for the first hot lunch day of session 2)
** PLEASE NOTE - Not to worry if you miss this deadline, you can still order for the next hot lunch day and the remainder of the session. All orders will close at 3pm 8 days prior to the food day.
Packaging and Caring for our environment
This year we did a lot of research on vendors who could offer more environmentally friendly packaging options. It is so great to see that many hot lunch providers have made great choices and changes to packaging!
* In order to do our part in helping we are asking each and every student to help in this respect. Please send reusable cutlery for your child on hot food days. Consider a “spork” - Sporks are available for order on each food day – order 1 and leave it in your child’s lunch kit.
We are NO LONGER providing plastic utensils
Session 2 vendors
