This Summer PPOS will be changing the lunch program to sack lunches from home only, due to lack of new volunteers. Starting Monday June 11th please pack a healthy lunch and snacks for your child everyday.
We want to give out a huge thanks to all the hard work the Lunch Ladies and Lunch Dudes contributed this year. We will still need help during lunch. Get your family commitment volunteer hours in before August. Lunchtime is 11:30-12:30. Let me know what day we can count on you.
We will be eating outside most days. Do not pack items that need to be microwaved as we will not have access to a microwave outside. Remember to pack all necessary utensils needed for your child’s meal.
Packing healthy lunches helps our kids focus and feel calm. Unprocessed, nutrient rich foods give them the building blocks to grow and reach their potential. Please avoid overly processed foods and sugary treats and drinks in your child’s lunch box.
If you are interested in learning more about packing healthy lunches affordably, I will be hosting a shopping and information workshop based upon interest this Summer. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up. Below is a list of healthy snack and lunch options.
Please don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions. Thank You!
