Cafeteria

George and Lisa Loper are long-time residents of Bowling Green and own George’s Catering and provide our hot lunch program with meals prepared in our kitchen daily.

Our primary objective is to provide good lunches that are high in nutritional value and interesting to the kids. We strive to offer fresh, seasonal and locally-sourced foods. As you may know, there are  FDA guidelines for school lunches, which if followed precisely, allow the school to recoup a portion of the costs. After careful discussion, we opted not to be limited by these guidelines in order to create a more interesting menu that will satisfy the kids while still providing balanced nutrition.  We will pay careful attention to food allergy requirements. All lunch staff are ServSafe Certified food service professionals who have completed appropriate background checks and the Diocesan Protecting Youth requirements.

Free and Reduced lunch option will still be offered to those who qualify. Please see the income eligibility guideline. We ask all families who fall into the income categories to please return the 16-17-free-reduced-application-1 completed. All information will be held in confidentiality within the school office. Ordering and payment will be handled by school staff only without children involvement. The cost for reduced lunch will increase as well to 60 cents. Those families who qualified last school year will carry over through in August. New forms must be completed by Aug. 30 to prequalify for the 2016-2017 School year.

PLEASE NOTE:
A new part of the routine will be advanced ordering. We will be asking you to order online and then send a payment a month in advance.
