We as parents look forward to special lunch day at school just as much as do the kids - it's one less day we have to figure out what to pack for lunch.  With some help from our KinderBuzz community on Facebook (we asked you your favourite places for special lunch day), here are some of your favourites along with a few suggestions of our own.





Dianne Dupuis

Choose from:

1. Rotini Noodles and Meatballs with fresh made Marinara Sauce with a seasonal fresh fruit cup - $10

2. Chicken Breast Wrap with Cucumber cheese and homemade Ranch dressing accompanied by Veggies and Dip, a homemade Chocolate Chip Cookie and juice box - $10



Boston Pizza

All of Boston Pizza’s School Lunch packaging is recyclable.

(306) 522-1944 ask for Stacey

Subway offers an easy healthy option as well as help raise funds for the school.  Stacey from Subway Quance Street has a set price 6 inch for $3.50, a foot-long for $5.  Schools will get $1.50 for every 6” and $2.00 for every footlong sold.  The school keeps the $1.50 & $2.00 profit.  Lunch boxes are made for each classroom with the teacher’s name on the sheet and each box will be labeled with that teachers name to make handing out subs quick and easy.
Chips and bottle drinks or cookies and bottle drinks can be added for an additional $2.50.

There's lots to choose from at Dairy Queen.  Choices include cheeseburger, double cheeseburger, hamburger, double hamburger, 3 chicken strips with a dip, hot dog, or grilled cheese sandwich.  Side options include a veggie pack or bag of chips.  And what would a DQ lunch be without a dilly bar, DQ sandwich, or a mini or small blizzard?
