Home Program Lunch Program
The Hot Lunch Program at Park Day School is available every school day and is prepared on site by our talented culinary team. We source organic produce from local farms whenever possible, and there are no processed foods served. Weather permitting, students, faculty, and administrators eat 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.
Register for Hot Lunch
Hot lunch is served every school day from September to June. No lunch, credit or special arrangement is provided for students off campus during the lunch hour. This includes students who are out sick, at an appointment, or off campus to attend a field trip, play rehearsal or any other off-campus event.
A typical lunch menu includes a main hot entree and vegetarian equivalent. Every day brings a selection of half a dozen hearty grain and vegetable salads, including roasted vegetables, or other sides like polenta triangles, hummus, or egg salad. Rice and beans are a staple in the buffet line, as are sunflower butter and jam sandwiches. Gluten free bread is available on request. Cut fruit and sliced vegetables, along with hard boiled eggs are always available. Milk and water are served to drink.
Head Chef, Neucimar Dias da Silva, grows his own greens and herbs in our garden for special dishes. By using washable dishes and cutlery from the kitchen, our program has minimal waste. Food scraps become compost for our Park Day chickens and worms.
