FernLeaf partners with a local catering company to provide healthy lunch options for students and staff at a modest cost.


Support for families in need will be provided based on Federal Poverty Guidelines. If you would like financial support please contact If you would like to donate support for a fellow FernLeafer, there is an option to "Buy a Lunch for a Buddy" in My Payments Plus.


See below for the current month's menu.

In order to accommodate the stomach sizes of Kindergarteners through teenagers, we have created two different "sizes" of lunches. There is a regular portion size and a LARGE portion size.

A regular portion is akin to a kids' menu sized meal. A large portion size is about 20% larger and is meant for kids who have outgrown those smaller portions. 

Lunch is a la carte, meaning you only order and pay for the days you want it for your child. Every day there is a gluten free and vegetarian option. 


Please place your order by the Wednesday BEFORE the week you are ordering for. We cannot accommodate late orders.
