Hot Lunch Overview

Wagner Ranch Hot Lunch Program
 
The Wagner Ranch's Hot Lunch Program is a parent lead program that in partnership with Sodexo aims to provide heathy, fresh and delicious lunches.  As with many parent lead program's, the Hot Lunch Program keeps costs low by asking all families that use hot lunch to strive to volunteer at least twice per year in the Raccoon's Den.   Please go to the Hot Lunch Volunteering page to learn more about volunteering and to sign up.
 
In 2018-2019, Chef Basil and Chef Matt will continue to cook on-site in the Wagner Ranch kitchen, offering high quality and tasty meals.  Sodexo has partnered with vendors that purchase from local farmers to provide fresh, local, seasonal, and, if available, organic produce and meats.  Your child's meal will include not only a hot entree and milk, but also a visit to the salad/ variety bar that includes fresh fruits, vegetables, yogurt, cheese, lettuce, dressings, and other healthy options. Gluten free options are frequently offered and can be made available everyday upon request.

Here is what you need to know:
 
As of the 2018-2019 school year, we will no longer be accepting checks as a standard form of payment for meals.  Please make payments via MealTime with a credit or debit card (MealTime has yet to enable eChecks).  See below for information on MealTime.
 
  • Lunch Start Date: Lunch service will begin on the first day of school - Wednesday, August 22nd, 2018.
  • Prices: Each standard lunch comes with a portioned (hot) entree, salad /variety bar, and milk for $5.50.  
    * On Wednesday's pasta day, there is an option for a double size portion of pasta for $6.75.

    * On Thursday's pizza day, there is an option for two slices of pizza for $6.75.
    Salad/ Variety Bar only option - $3.50 -includes trip to salad/variety bar and drink.
  • Salad/ Variety bar includes such items as potato bar, salad bar, taco bar, fruit, yogurt, cheese sticks, etc.
  • Both white and chocolate milk are available.
  • Please discuss with your child what they are allowed to eat in the Raccoon's Den.  For many children an extra portion may be too much.
  • Water: A water station is available in the lunch area to use to fill personal water bottles. Each child should bring their own labeled bottle. Bottled water is no longer provided.
  • In an effort to be as green as possible, straws are no longer provided. Aids will help any kids that need help opening milk and learning to drink from the small carton.
  • Monthly Menus: A menu for the month is sent home in the Friday folder near the end of each month and is available on the Wagner Ranch web page.
  • YAY! NO preordering.  As long as you have set up a MealTime account for your child and deposited funds, s/he can buy a lunch any day of the week.  Even if you have not set up an account and you have an unexpected need to use the program, your child will still be able to order a lunch but we ask that you promptly submit payment via MealTime.
  • How to Purchase: WRPC has partnered with the MealTime Point of Sale (POS) System. Students are able to purchase Daily Menu items with a pre-paid debit account by swiping their student ID card (which remains at school). To learn more about setting up your child's MealTime account, click here.  To set up your student’s account, go to MealTime POS System.  

    • MealTime accounts and deposits cannot be set up until you receive your child's student ID number (it will come via email and/or in your child's Jumpstart manila envelope).

    • Tip: Consider posting extra funds based on how often your child will be eating hot lunch.  At the end of the year, funds will roll over to the next year, can be returned or transferred to OIS (for fifth graders).

    • MealTime has yet to enable eChecks as a form of payment for Wagner.

    • Low balance notifications can be enabled via MealTime.  You will also be sent a paper notice via the Friday Folder of any low ($10 or less) or negative balance.  Please pay all negative balances promptly as sending these is a burden to volunteers and the aid that full the Friday Folders.

    • On line deposits will take 1-2 school days to synchronize with Wagner's lunch computer and update the child's on line balance. If after 2 school days you still do not see the balance updated with your payment please contact the Hot Lunch Logistics Coordinator (see below).

  • Lunch Process: At lunch time, each child will check in with the parent volunteer who will collect their MealTime card.  S/he will then proceed through the lunch line, picking up their hot entree and milk.  Upon exiting the kitchen area, s/he will go through the variety bar and make their selections.

Chef Basil, Chef Matt and the WRPC are looking forward to providing our children with healthy and tasty meal experiences this fall.
