Before I start with letting you know about the lunch site, I feel it is very important to say something: I, on behalf of all the parents, want to say a huge thank you to Beth, our Lunch Coordinator and volunteer parent extraordinaire! Beth has put an incredible amount of time into getting the menu organized, coordinating with the caterers, and setting up the new lunch site: MunchaLunch. When you see the extensive menu you will understand just how much work has gone into this! THANK YOU BETH!!!!
The PAC Lunch Program (along with our direct appeal which will be sent home next week) is the main fundraiser for the school. Last year we managed to raise close to $22,000 for the school. This money goes directly to help all students. This as all done with us only increasing the cost of each item by no more than 10% above cost.
The lunch program is based solely on parent volunteers. Without parent involvement we will not be able to run. AT THE TOP OF THE MENU YOU WILL SEE A TAB “VOLUNTEER”. If you are willing to help out any day of the week between 11:30 and 12:30, click and sign up. Our amazing Volunteer Coordinator, Donghong will create the monthly volunteer list and send it out.
Now, this new system will look different than last year. I have just tried it and it is so simple!
To access the MunchaLunch link on the PAC website (https://nrppac.wordpress.com)
- Click on the Lunch FAQ tab
- Click on the blue “Lunch Link Click Here” Button
- Simply follow the prompts. Setting up the account is simple but you will need either your child`s Division # or Teacher name (if you are not sure just ask your child)
- After registering you may continue to “Order Lunch!”
Once complete you will have the option to pay by cheque (make cheque payable to Norma Rose Point PAC), or use Stripe. Stripe is similar to PayPal but you do not require an account. It is a completely safe method of paying by credit card
If you are paying cash, please email Beth at : firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange to meet. We prefer you not send the payment to school with your child.
Lastly, please note that the menu will be on a 7 day cut off. What does that mean? If you want to order for Monday September 18, you must place the order no later than Monday September 11. If you want to order for Tuesday September 19, the order must be in no later than Tuesday September 12 and so on…You can order as far in advance as you like and for as many days of the week as you like.
If you have any questions, please feel free to send a message through the website, email Beth or email me at email@example.com
DO NOT FORGET TO SEND UTENSILS!!!! We do not supply forks, spoons or knives!
