Every semester, The Lunch Mom (TLM Catering) provides a menu and an order form to parents online. Parents have the option of choosing lunch any number of days/week they wish (depending on the school’s hot lunch requirements).
Unlike some hot lunch programs, all children have the SAME lunch every day. This helps ensure that each participating child has the opportunity to try new, healthy foods.
Fall 2021 will offer a pared down menu of “fan favourites” as we launch a pre-packaged, Covid-safe delivery service to replace our usual buffet style lunch program.
Gluten-free, vegetarian, dairy-free, and egg-free options are still available upon request. There is no pork used in the preparation of any foods served by TLM Catering. All lunches are prepared in our nut and seed free kitchen.
SOME DETAILS REGARDING FOOD DELIVERY FOR FALL 2021:
Our TDSD and TCDSB schools will be able to access our hot lunch program this Fall with a pre-packaged meal plan. Your school principal will be deciding if and when it is appropriate to restart hot lunch this year.
Lunches will be ordered online as per normal, and pre-packed hot lunches will be sorted into bins, one per class, and delivered to the door of your child’s classroom right before lunch.
This will be a change from our usual buffet service which normally allows modification of lunches on site by students. We hope that by narrowing our meals to the kids’ favourites, less modification will be needed and your child will still be able to enjoy a hot lunch in their classrooms with their cohorts.
SOME DETAILS REGARDING FOOD PREPARATION:
All ground meat is first roasted and drained of all fat.
Only extra lean beef is used (tacos, meatballs, etc).
Tomato sauce and stocks are all homemade, and include a variety of “hidden” pureed vegetables.
All food is trans-fat free.
All food items are seed and nut-free.
All dishes are prepared using low sodium and low sugar recipes.
WHAT IF MY CHILD DOESN’T LIKE HOT LUNCH AFTER SIGNING UP?
Don’t worry! With a super picky child of my own, I totally understand! If your child tries hot lunch and hates it, just contact me and we will work out a refund. Though we hope you will be happily surprised at the things your child may eat when his/her classmates are eating the same meal!
