The “Lunch Ladies” are St. Gabriel’s own parishioners/moms: Jill Farace and Carrie Green. We are employed by Chris’ Pancake.
Monthly menus are due by date listed on menu, usually the last Tuesday of the month. Weekly orders must be turned in by the prior Tuesday. Please make checks payable to Chris’ Pancake. You may write one check per family. Each child should have their own menu; all menus can be turned in together with one check.
- Regular lunches are $4.00 each. Daily lunches include fruit and drink. For 3rd – 8th grades, Extra Entrée is the daily lunch with an additional portion of the entrée for $1.00 more ($5.00 total).
|Examples of the Extra Entrée:
In addition to regular portions
To order, circle “Extra Entrée $5.00”.
- Individual drinks can be pre-ordered on the menu or purchased daily. ($0.40 each). Students have a choice of low-fat white milk, low-fat chocolate milk, 100% juice or bottled water.
- Grilled cheese or corn dog lunch is available daily ($4.00 cash/check) and can be purchased “day-of”. Students must notify their homeroom teacher if they are purchasing a “day-of” grilled cheese or corn dog lunch. They do not need to tell the teacher if this was pre-ordered.
- Dessert is served only once a week unless there is a holiday party or it’s a really short week. Dessert can be pre-ordered or purchased that day. We do our best to correctly estimate the amount of day of purchases but we can’t guarantee we will not run out.
If a child forgets his lunch, cheese sticks will be provided. You may authorize your child(ren) to receive a grilled cheese or corn dog lunch instead of cheese sticks via email. Payment will be due the following day. One email per family per year is sufficient. Please list all children and homerooms. Authorization can also be rescinded at any time. Please email authorization to email@example.com.
We keep the original order forms in the kitchen. If there is a question with the teacher’s lunch list, please have the student come to the cafeteria to check the original order form. If you have a question about your order, please contact Jill at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Helpful Hint: Take a picture of your child’s lunch order form with your phone so you will have a copy.
If your child is absent, you may receive a lunch credit to be used the following month. All credits should be used by the following month of the absence. You are responsible to keep track of the credits and subtract that amount from the next month’s total. (Please note the day of absence when taking the credit.)
We do not handle any peanut/nut products in the kitchen. We do not order items that knowingly have nuts in them. However; you, as the parent, are the best protector of your child. If you have questions regarding the ingredients in of our products, please email us at email@example.com
It would be helpful to know if your child has a non-nut food allergy: beans, peas, apples. Just email or mark the menu. We will not serve your child those items.
We try to keep the menu as healthy as possible. Everything is made fresh at the school. With the exception of the toasted ravioli, nothing is fried.
We are always looking for new lunch menu ideas. So ask the kids and let us know! Questions/comments/lunch ideas can be sent to Jill: firstname.lastname@example.org, or for immediate assistance during school hours call the school office at 314-353-1229.
