Lunch Program

School Council is thrilled to announce that our Lunch Program will run again on Thursdays. Session two will run from February 8 - June 13 and ordering will open January 19. This program provides the opportunity for parents to buy nutritious and appetizing lunches for their children. All funds raised go directly back to support Banff Elementary School programs such as Nature Explorers and Outdoor Pursuits (swimming, skiing, snowshoeing, climbing, curling, etc). The Banff Centre, Patty's Pantry, Wild Flour, Aardvark Pizza, Fairmont Banff Springs, Domino’s Pizza and new this session, Pho House and Banff Curry will carefully prepare lunches for our children. Thank you to these local vendors for their continued support for this very important program!  

The MunchaLunch order deadline for this entire lunch session (February 8 - June 13) is Monday January 29 11:59 pm. Once the system is closed we cannot add additional orders. The MunchaLunch system offers a secure credit card payment option. Once you have placed your order please click on the PAY NOW button and make your credit card payment. Unpaid orders will be cancelled.

This is a purely volunteer run program. We are in need of volunteers. Please contact Lily Reid ( to volunteer or there is a volunteer link in the ordering system. Volunteering on Thursdays can be as short as 15 minutes (12:00 - 12:15 pm) if that’s all the time you can spare. Volunteers are required to have a current RCMP Vulnerable Sector check and sign the BES Confidentiality Agreement. Please email for a fee waiver and further instructions. We cannot run the program without the help of volunteers.

An automated reminder email will be sent to you from the MunchaLunch system on Wednesdays if you ordered lunch for the next day (please ensure on your profile page to allow Lunch Reminders to be emailed). Please remember to send your child(ren) with additional healthy snacks, a container with a lid and cutlery. No plates or cutlery will be available.

Don't delay…order before the deadline!

If you have any questions please feel free to contact the school office.
