This advance notice supports the high variety of meals we offer every day and avoid food waste as we buy only fresh and quality ingredients. All changes of meals must also be made 4 business/school days in advance.
-- What if my child is sick ?
A sick day means you have ordered lunch for your child and he didn't show up to collect it because he was sick and did not go to school on that day.
As we cook fresh food every morning -- please understand that we won't be able to provide the same day or last minute cancellations or refunds.
If you know your child will be absent from school for more than 2 days please contact us by email or call us then we will refund your account starting from the second day.
-- What about field trips or holidays ?
We do our best to sync up with the school's calendar and customize your monthly Meal Plan. On holidays or vacations, the day will be closed for ordering.
We can't deliver on field trip days because students usually leave the school before our lunchboxes arrive.
If there is a field trip for certain classes, we rely on parents to either not order or cancel the meal (please remember, you need to make cancellations 4 business days in advance and we will refund or re-credit your debit or credit card with the full amount).

Every month, we work with our culinary team and kids to decide what to offer in our next menu.
We do not practice a fixed monthly menu rotation. We try to make the best of what nature has to offer. Most importantly we always listen to children. That way we are able to bring back recipes with high success rate and change those that are less appreciated.When we create our new recipes, we invite schools, kids and parents in our kitchen to try out new meals and offer us feedback! We cook for children, so they decide what will be next in our menu!

Not yet ! But we will make it happen if you want to and if numerous families ask us !

If you have special food concerns, please contact us and we'd be happy to consult with you individually.

Right after cooking, we pack our food in an eco-friendly lunchbox.
