Hot Lunch Information

Hot lunch information header for Shabonee

Please read to the end as you will receive important information!

Lunch Solutions is very happy to be managing your school’s PTA Hot Lunch program this year. My name is Robin Bear and I am a former D27 parent, Grove & Wood Oaks PTA President and Hot Lunch Chair for 10 years in the district! I am excited to be back working with Hickory Point and helping to fundraise more funds for the PTA, while serving your children fresh lunches delivered only minutes before lunch starts. And, your payments will go directly into your PTA’s bank account!

We are excited to be collaborating with many different vendors and offering many new menu choices, along with those your children have come to love over the years. Each lunch will have a Gluten Free and Vegetarian option available and lunch will be served Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.

You will notice below that ordering will now be offered on a monthly basis with closing the 25th. Please know that if you need any changes you just need to send me a quick e-mail and I will be more than happy to help you. Flexibility is important as things change in our daily lives!
