The Lunch Lady has been preparing and delivering individually catered hot and cold lunches to children at school since 1993. We are the largest provider of this service in Canada, serving thousands of children every school day through nearly 50 kitchens, in 5 provinces!
We Meet All Provincial Legislation
Our programs are fully compliant with the school nutrition requirements of all Canadian provinces. This includes Ontario's new School Food and Beverage Policy [PPM 150], which the Lunch Lady has been fully compliant with since September 2010. We ensure that our program always meets the guidelines so that you don't have to worry! Read more about the new School Food and Beverage Policy [PPM 150] here on our blog.
No Work For Schools
The Lunch Lady handles all of the administrative details. That means – we take complete responsibility for the program – from beginning…to end. We take great care to make certain that our program fits smoothly into your established school routines. We also allow parents to order online, making our service a convenient fit for a parent's busy schedule!
We Make Healthy Easy
We make healthy easy. The Lunch Lady program reinforces the healthy food messages taught in the classroom. Parents order from our carefully planned menus that include healthier choices like 100% pure fruit juices and whole wheat breads, wraps and buns. You will never find pop, candy or deep fried foods on a Lunch Lady menu so parents will never have to say "no" to any menu item that kids choose!
Our Food is School Safe
The Lunch Lady never forgets who she is making lunch for – your children. All of our meals are prepared fresh daily in a commercial kitchen owned and operated by your local Lunch Lady.
Here's what School Safe means to us:
- Our meals are nut-free
- Our staff have their criminal checks
- Our professional kitchens are regularly inspected by Regional Health Services
- Our food allergy management program ensures a safe eating environment for all students
- Our kitchens carry full liability insurance with schools and school boards co-insured
- Our staff wear bright red aprons so they are easy to find at school

The benefits of using the Lunch Lady go well beyond the fact that kids are having a great lunch. The Lunch Lady provides the opportunity to turn our program into a lucrative fundraising program that makes meaningful contributions to the school and benefits the entire school community. Our program is also environmentally friendly, helping your school live up to its commitment to a sustainable environment.
