Hot Lunch Program

We have added to the menu Beefatoni , (ground beef with rigatoni noodles, red sauce or plain). This menu option will include french bread, fresh fruit, fresh vegetable, and a light dessert.

  • Please keep in mind when ordering and selecting your menu items for the month you must complete the ordering process.

  • Be sure to "CHECK OUT" the order and "PAY INVOICE" and finally click on "PROCEED". Only when you receive an invoice marked as "PAID" will the order be confirmed.

  • Not completing the process will result in an "UNCONFIRMED ORDER". All unconfirmed orders that pass the ordering DEADLINE DATE will not process, which will result in your child not receiving the anticipated lunch item.

The online Hot Lunch Program is only for Kindergarten through 8th grade. For those of you that have not signed up for "Hot Lunch", you can do so at https://cantoncountryday.ahotlunch.com
