Canteen Lunch 101
For families new or unfamiliar with our Canteen Lunch program, here are the basics of how it works. At lunchtime on most Thursdays (see schedule above), students are provided the opportunity to purchase hot food items, beverages and snacks at school for lunch. All proceeds benefit the Walter Lee PAC which provides funding for many programs and resources for all our students.
The hot food items featured each week rotate between pizza ($2 per slice), hot dogs ($1 each) and special pre-ordered offerings (typically $4-$5 per item; notices will be sent home with students). A variety of meat/vegetarian options are offered. We will try our best to accommodate any particular dietary needs. In addition to hot items, a variety of snacks and beverages are also available for purchase. Typical items may include chips, chocolate milk or mango juice ($1 each item), as well as rice krispie bars, fruit juice boxes, granola bars or fruit gummies ($1 for any 2 items). Selection and availability of snack and beverage items may be subject to change occasionally.
Canteen provides an opportunity for all students from even the primary grades to experience buying and selecting their own lunch items. The Canteen is staffed by parent and intermediate student volunteers. Please be advised that although we may help direct students towards ordering suitable items and/or quantities, it is ultimately their decision what to order. Please discuss with your child what items you expect them to purchase at Canteen, including whether or not you expect them to bring home change. In the case of younger students, you may include a note with money specifying their Canteen order.
Please do not send large amounts of money to school for Canteen. Typically, on pizza or hot dog days, up to $5 will suffice for a hot item, drink and snack. It can be unsafe for students to bring large amounts of cash to school, and we often do not have sufficient change for large denomination bills ($5 bills maximum please!).
Let’s Go GREEN! On pizza Canteen days, please send a reusable plate to school with your child for their pizza.
Please contact us if your child has any special dietary requirements. We wish for all students to have the opportunity to participate in Canteen. We’d also love to hear from any volunteers interested in helping out. Any questions, comments or concerns can be directed to this year’s Canteen coordinators, Anja Rosenke and Tina Leung. Please email us at Walter_Lee_Pac@yahoo.ca.
Parent Volunteers Needed!
Our Canteen lunch program is run by Lee parent volunteers and we need you! If you are interested and able to assist us, please come join us on any Canteen Thursday in the Art Room at 11:30 am. Lunch runs from 12:10 to 1:00 pm. Parent volunteers are needed for set-up, lunch time and clean-up of Canteen, typically finishing by 1:30 pm. There is no commitment required.
