Deadline Extended! Can we take care of lunches for you?

Fern’s hot-lunch program served more than 30,000 lunches last year to students from JK to grade 8, teachers and staff. The lunch program will continue in the 2015-2016 school year with the Food Committee handling the administration of the lunch orders. This year, we are pleased to be introducing a 4-week menu rotation featuring items such as chicken cacciatore, teriyaki noodles, burger with oven fries, chicken noodle soup, panko-breaded sole, spaghetti and meatballs, burrito, chicken tikka masala and pita pizza!

Parents who wish to start the next school year off with healthy and tasty lunches for their children may do so by submitting their lunch orders by Friday, September 18th, 2015 to begin lunches on Thursday, October 1st, 2015. To sign up, check your child’s backpack for more information, or simply download the order form and drop it off in the secure black mailbox at Fern, located outside the Ferncliff Daycare office (room 103; enter the school, turn left and it’s about halfway down the hall on the right-hand wall).

The Food Committee is also looking for volunteers! The lunch program is a volunteer-driven initiative. Parents who have been volunteering with the program have found it to be a rewarding experience, from seeing how excited the kids are to be eating delicious food (and trying foods they never eat at home!), to engaging with parents and being part of the hub that helps sustain the program through collaboration with the school, the Toronto District School Board and School Council.
