Lunch Programs

Food For School Program

The Food for School program works in collaboration with the Blackfalds Family and Community Support Services. These services supply healthy breakfasts, snacks, and lunches for families in need due to financial or family crises, or other emergent concerns. The Food for School program is completely funded by community agencies and private donors.

Hot Lunch Option

This program is organized by and relies on parent volunteers. This program usually begins in late Fall and ends in early Spring depending on the availability of volunteers.

Healthy lunches from participating restaurants are available for purchase via Parent Portal. Parents receive a notification when hot lunch is ready for purchase. Please ensure you are signed up for general notification through your Parent Portal in order to receive these notifications.

Hot lunches are offered a few times per month. Parents have the flexibility to choose from some, all, or none of the options available. Parents must still send healthy snacks for the morning snack and/or to supplement the hot lunch. 

School fees must be paid before these programs will be available.

**Please note that vendors cannot accommodate allergies, food intolerances, or food preferences due to the high volume of orders. This is a family choice and there is no obligation to participate. Not all students receive a hot lunch. It varies greatly depending on what families choose.

Proceeds from these programs go towards items for classrooms such as iPads, makerspace materials and books for classroom libraries.
