Understanding the Elementary Lunch Order Process
To offer students at each elementary school a wide selection of hot and cold food items, the Caldwell-West Caldwell School District enables families to order lunch menu items on a monthly or weekly basis. A monthly menu and order form is sent home with a specified due date for families to review, select and order from one week to one month in advance. Due to limited kitchen facilities, all orders must be placed at least one full week (9 days) prior to the start of the week in which the student will be receiving lunch. Lunch orders must be placed on the Friday and can only be for the week or entire month.
For each school day on which their is a lunch period*, our food services offer a hot and cold lunch option that includes an entree, fruit and vegetable, and your choce of skim milk. Or, students can order a garden salad, hot dog or bagel with butter.
Please note that menus may differ by elementary school. Please use the menu and order form for your specific elementary school only.
