Tuesday / Thursday Lunch Program
BANFF ELEMENTARY SCHOOL LUNCH DAYS PROGRAM (2018-2019)
School Council is thrilled to continue our lunch days program using the MunchaLunch online ordering system. This program is a fundraiser for School Council and provides the opportunity for parents to buy nutritious and appetizing lunches for their children on Tuesdays and Thursdays. All funds raised go directly back to support Banff Elementary School programs such as Nature Explorers and Outdoor Pursuits (swimming, skiing, snowshoeing, climbing, curling, tennis, canoeing, etc). The Fairmont Banff Springs, Aardvark Pizza, The Old Spaghetti Factory, Subway, Earls Kitchen, The Rimrock Resort Hotel and Mount View Barbecue are again carefully preparing lunches for our children, with the new addition of Wild Flour this year. Thank you to these local vendors for their continued support of this very important fundraiser!
This is a purely volunteer run program. We are in need of volunteers. We are hoping that if your child is signed up for the lunch program, you could spare 30-35 minutes at lunchtime on an occasional Tuesday or Thursday. Please contact our volunteer coordinator Gabby DeBaie at email@example.com to volunteer. You can also sign up on the MunchaLunch website when completing your child's order. There is a volunteer link to click on to choose the date(s) that would work best for you. It's a fun way to meet other parents and connect with all the kids. We cannot run the program without the help of volunteers.
The first session will run from September 18 - January 31. The order system is now open and the order deadline is September 13, 2018. Once the system is closed we cannot add additional orders. If you are new to the lunch program, please click here to register with MunchaLunch. If you used the program last year, please click here to access the order system. These links can also be found on the BES website under Quick Links. Don't delay…order today!
We are happy to continue offering a secure credit card payment option through the MunchaLunch system (preferred payment method). Payment will still be accepted by cash (exact amount) or cheque; either with one cheque dated September 13, 2018 for the entire lunch total, or 2 cheques, one dated September 13, 2018 and one post dated to November 14, 2018. All cheques will be due on September 13, 2018 at the school office. Please make cheques payable to BES School Council and ensure to include the order number with your payment.
Please remember to send your child(ren) with utensils and a container with a lid. No paper plates or utensils will be available if your child does not have their own.
Please take advantage of MunchaLunch`s email reminders to confirm your child(ren)`s lunch along with the reminder to send utensils and a container.
If you have any questions please feel free to ask one of us.
Your lunch days team: Susan Hughes, Chris Lamothe, Gabby DeBaie and Jane Carswell
