(3) the student’s lunch number

You are asked to call between 7-10 a.m. The food package will be delivered between 11:00 am -1:00 pm. If you call and you are asked to leave a message, please give the information stated above.
We realize that it is important to maintain the students’ health and well-being by providing nutrition throughout the day, and we are happy to offer this service to you.”
