The “Lunch Mom” hot lunch program was started in 2009 by a mom of two growing boys who was desperate to never pack a lunch again! Tired of making lunches at 11pm that would not get eaten the next day, I decided to bring hot, healthy, eco-friendly lunches directly to my boys’ school, with absolutely no work for parents or school staff.
We have since expanded the program to twelve local schools and various summer camps with fantastic results! We now serve over 5000 lunches a week to various schools and camps in midtown Toronto.
Our new Leaside kitchen is completely nut and seed free, and is staffed with dedicated individuals working hard to ensure that only the highest quality foods reach our childrens’ classrooms. The menu has been reviewed by a registered dietician to ensure that every meal served is healthy, home made, low fat, additive free, and low in sodium and sugar. Meals conform or exceed school board guidelines.
Hot lunches are served each day with a salad, fresh fruit and raw vegetable. Children are encouraged to come up for seconds!
Our program is 100% eco-friendly – children are served on real dishes which are cleared, washed and returned for re-use daily.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions, or about bringing hot lunch to YOUR child’s school!
