Lunch menus are planned out weeks in advance. Food is ordered according to the plans that have been made for the meals. Once the organization has been completed to create the menu for the month, copies are sent home with students so that families can plan ahead for the meals that will be prepared. The cost of each item is also listed on the menu.
There are always multiple options in a day not only for breakfast, but for lunch menus as well. At the beginning of every day, each teacher reports to the lunchroom the selection each child has made. These choices determine how much of an item is prepared for lunch time and prohibits extras or changes from being made sue to the advanced planning and the need for ensuring there is no excessive waste or a child not getting what he or she ordered.
