Hot Lunch Program
Hot lunch is 5 days a week.
Order Forms can be found in the cafeteria, outside the main office, in the extension room or by logging into SchoolSpeak.
Order forms are monthly. The upcoming month form comes out the last week of every month. I would appreciate the forms as early as possible in order to make it easier to buy and prepare the correct amount of lunches.
Please make sure to label the desired lunch day on the menu with your child’s name. This information helps to create the checklist for each day of service.
If a family has more than one child, please write the names on each day each child is buying lunch so we can limit confusion. Forms can be turned into the office or directly to the cafeteria, and can be turned in at any time of the month.
The price for one lunch is $5 if paid before the day of service. Day of purchase is permitted at the price of $6 per lunch. As explained on the Order Form, families who have more than one child and buy 2 lunches on the same day pay $8, and families that buy 3 lunches on the same day pay $10 if paid before the day of service. Payments can be made in cash or by check. Make checks payable to St. Francis Elementary or SFE. Memo: Hot Lunch
Each lunch includes an entrée, side, milk, and a choice of fruit or green salad. I try to make as many things for the kids as I can. I make the applesauce, spaghetti sauce, the pinto beans, the lasagna rolls, chili, the macaroni and cheese, I roll out the pizzas, all sandwiches, tacos, and burritos are prepared by myself. Please feel free to come speak to me about dietary concerns or allergies.
My name is Eric Church and I graduated from St. Francis in 1996. I began to work at St. Francis in January 2001, while I went to CSUS where I received my degree in Social Sciences. In 2009, then principal Mrs. Power asked if I would be interested in taking over operations of the St. Francis lunch program. I saw it as an unexpected opportunity to help our school community. St. Francis is where I grew up, where my mom has worked for 30 years, where my sister and cousin went to school, and where I met my wife. I am very proud to be a part of St. Francis Elementary, and it is my hope that I can be a benefit to all our families and students.
Thank you for your continued support,
