Any lunch cancelled after the 9:00AM deadline but before 9:00AM the day the lunch is to be served you will receive a half credit on your Choicelunch account.

- Same Day Order: Once the normal ordering day has closed, Last Minute Ordering will be available until 6:00AM the morning the lunch is needed.

- Emergency Lunches: If your child forgets to bring a lunch, Choice Lunch will always send Emergency Lunches. Any child requesting an emergency lunch will be asked to call home in the office. These lunches are limited and are distributed on a first come, first serve basis. Once these entrées have been distributed a cereal option will be available for the child(ren) so they do not need to go hungry. With this option, the child will receive a cereal and milk, along with a fruit/veggie, snack and an additional drink. Cereal Emergency Lunches are always free. Contact the School Office (650) 322-2312 and pre-approve an Emergency Lunch any time before the lunch service.
Your hungry kids will always have the option to grab extra fruit and vegetables whether they purchased a lunch that day or not. Snacks or additional meals will not be available. Emergency lunches will be available every day. Please contact the School Office to arrange for an emergency lunch order (650) 322-2312.

- What do I get for serving lunch? Choicelunch pays volunteers in free lunches. Each day that you serve lunch, a credit will be deposited into your account.
- How do I receive my credit? Please make sure to sign in on the Choicelunch Daily Report on each of your work days so that the company can apply the appropriate credit to your account.
- How long does it take to get a credit? It can take up to three school days to have the credit post to your account. If it has been longer than that contact Customer Service 855-GO-LUNCH (855-465-8624) and they will be happy to assist you.
- How can I use my lunch credit? Credits can be used to pay for lunches and gift to other families; credits have no monetary value and expire one year after they are issued.
Nutrition information is available for all of the meals served by Choicelunch. When ordering, select the tab “nutrition”.
- Who are your suppliers? Choicelunch sources ingredients from within 150 miles of our facilities, and a majority of the food comes from within California.
- Does Choicelunch offer organic lunches? Choicelunch partners with local providers, often growers who don’t use pesticides or sprays, but are too small to get the ‘organic’ stamp. The company does emphasize organics where it matters – especially in produce buying.
- Does Choicelunch offer hormone-free foods? The low fat white and fat free chocolate milk is rBST-free. Choicelunch sources hormone-free chicken breasts and thighs (which are antibiotic-free as well) and turkey ingredients, as the USDA prohibits all chickens and turkeys to be given any hormones.
- Allergens: Choicelunch takes every precaution to prevent cross-contamination between allergens and ensure the accuracy of the information presented. We go to great lengths to source our ingredients with our most sensitive customers in mind, and often make decisions based on the allergen composition of an ingredient. However, we cannot guarantee with absolute certainty that every entree will be completely free of trace amounts of allergens, as product substitutions that impact the allergen makeup of an ingredient, though rare, may occur.
Choicelunch does not recommend that customers with severe or life-threatening allergies participate in the program.
