Hot Lunch Program – 2020-2021

Hot lunch menu can be seen on the Darling Catering website. Select St. Mary School and choose menu.

Please review the information below

  • Paper Menus are sent home the 3rd week of the month, allowing at least 4 school days for you to return them.  Please send the menus back with your child or drop them off in the office. Important reminder, please get the menus in by 9am on the final day. 


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


  • Circle either the single or double, entrée price for each day that your child wishes to eat.


  • The cost for a single lunch is $4.00; a double entrée is $5.00.


  • Payment: We accept check, cash or Venmo.  Venmo account is Cheryl-Darling-4   Please include your child’s name, grade and school when paying by Venmo.


  • Late menus are a huge inconvenience for everyone. Please return your menu by the due date. If your menu is late, we cannot guarantee that your child will get a lunch on the day the menu is turned in. Your child will not be on their teacher’s list until the following day.


  • Late Fee: Menus that are turned in after the first day of the month will incur a $5.00 late fee. Please include it with the menu. Menus will not be accepted after the 3rd day of the month.


  • Emergency Lunches: Only allowed if the student prepays first thing in the morning in the office. Because of the changes with lunch pick-up this year, emergency lunches are no longer available at the lunch counter. The cost is $5.00.


  • Absences: If your child is absent a credit will only be given, if we are contacted prior to 9am (Text 916-296-9265). Otherwise, you are welcome to come by and pick up their lunch or transfer it to a sibling.


  • Salad Bar: Currently we will be suspending the salad bar. Because of the need for contact free pick-up, we will be putting fruits and vegetables inside of their lunches. We will have some premade salads that your child may request when picking up their lunch.


  • Snack bar: is available during morning break at the door to the cafeteria.  Items range from .50 to 1.50


Thank you to all who order from Darling Catering. We appreciate your business.
