St. Frances of Rome School will continue as a participating school in the Archdiocese School Food Services Program. The meal cost will remain the same as last year (please review the chart below).
New Food Company Selected:
We are pleased to inform you that a new food service provider has been selected. 'Better 4 You Meals' has been selected following an extensive bidding process. 'Better 4 You Meals' will prepare meals at their central kitchen location and deliver hot meals to the schools daily. Students will continue with their lunch cards and our ordering process will continue with the monthly meal menu.
Remember that your active participation as parents is required for the success of this program. Please remember to complete the meal application at the beginning of the school year. We will begin the year with a continued student status from last year for the first two weeks of school. It is very important that the application be turned in promptly. Students who participate in the hot lunch program on a 'fee based' participation must be prompt with their fees (payment). Please note that this is an external program and all monies are forwarded to the archdiocese to support the purchase of food and maintenance of the contract with Better 4 You Meals.
Meal Cost: Full Price Reduced-Price
Lunch $3.00 $0.40
Sack Lunches: The process for students to bring a sack lunch will continue.
Lunches: Please do not bring your students lunch except in the case of emergencies. Parents are asked to bring all forgotten lunches to the office with the students name and grade clearly indicated. These will be delivered to the classroom before lunch by student monitors or staff. Parents will not be allowed to take forgotten lunches directly to the classes.
We do ask that parents refrain from bringing external food from other vendors at lunch time. Happy Meals, pizza and similar fast foods often create difficulty at the lunch tables. This is compounded when the meals include toys. Please note your cooperation with this request is appreciated.
