Lunch Program


Paper Menus are sent home the 3rd week of the month, allowing at least 4 school days for you to turn them in. Menus are distributed to the children in their classrooms. If possible, turn them into the office yourself.

If you have Microsoft Excel, you can use the Excel order form that is emailed home monthly. It handles the math automatically.

Circle either the single or double, entrée price for each day that your child wishes to eat. Please check your order forms carefully, double checking your math.

The cost for a single lunch is $4.25; a double entrée is $5.25.

A single order has one of each of the day’s menu items. A double order has 2 of the main menu items (e.g. 2 tacos) and one of everything else.

Beverages are not included in the price of the lunch.

Make Checks payable to Darling Catering. Cash is also accepted.

Fill out a separate menu for each child. One check per family is fine.

Late Fee: Starting this year menus submitted after the first day of each month will incur a $5.00 late fee. Please add this to your total and make a notation. Menus will not be accepted after the third day of each month.

Emergency lunches are $6.00. They need to be ordered in the morning. Please have your child stop by the office to preorder and pay for it.

Policy regarding absences: Darling Catering will only give credits with at least 24 hours prior notice. Please call the office and request a credit (916-296-9265). If 24 hours’ notice is not given, you are welcome to come and pick up your child’s lunch or transfer it to a sibling.

A salad bar is offered daily stocked with a multitude of items as well as fresh fruit. Organic items are often available i.e. spinach and carrots. A full plate salad bar can be purchased for $3.00. You can make a notation on your menu or order the same day.
