Our District is proud to work with the team at Simply Foods to provide easy, affordable and nutritious lunch options that feed kids and support families, through our FuelUp Lunch Program! When it comes to the menu, every month there is a regular rotation of crowd favourites, special days options and some “try it” days (to offer kids a chance to maybe expand their palettes).
With menu options available to meet most dietary needs, families can order them through an easy-to-use online platform: https://simplyfoods.ahotlunch.ca/login
Full and partial subsidies are available to families who need a bit of extra help making sure their kids are fully fueled and ready to take on a day full of learning and play.
Why do families in New Westminster participate? It takes the stress off of packing lunches every day, options are affordable and healthy … but also, it’s a program that gives back! 25-50 cents from each meal ordered goes to support a subsidy for a child who otherwise might not have a lunch to eat. And because no one knows who has ordered food and who is taking advantage of subsidy options, all kids enjoy their lunch together without the stigma that other meal programs can sometimes have.
