Home Program Hot Lunch
Park Day is proud of the phenomenal Hot Lunch Program offered on campus every school day. Weather and safety guidelines permitting, students, faculty, and administrators meet together outside to eat at tables nestled in a grove of trees. Sharing food is one of the many ways we connect and build community.
The Hot Lunch Program is run by the Epicurean Group, who have been supporting School Communities for two decades in the Bay Area and beyond. The Epicurean Group knows how important food is to the overall student experience at school. They know what it means for parents to be confident that their students have access to healthy, nutritious tasty food in an engaging environment that enhances student community life. Their goal is to fuel growing students with delicious wholesome food!
Epicurean Group is one of the first food service companies to be certified as a Green Business, recognized for community environmental responsibility, resource conservation, and pollution prevention. Read their Sustainability Pledge!
Hot lunch is served every school day from September to June. Hot lunches are provided for students attending field trips, play rehearsals or other off-campus events.
No lunch, credit or special arrangement is provided for students who are out sick, at an appointment, or off campus for personal reasons.
