KID CHOW SCHOOL LUNCH FALL 2013 AT RUSD

We are thrilled to be offering your children healthy and delicious school lunches again next year. Kid Chow’s mission is to serve the highest quality, locally sourced meals in a sustainably responsible and affordable way. We are committed to using the best possible ingredients: hormone free meats and dairy, nitrate-free deli and fresh organic fruit and vegetables. Our menu and facility is nut-free and offers an array of gluten-free, non-dairy and vegetarian menu options. Kid Chow offers kids a VIRTUAL CAFETERIA; each lunch from our extensive daily selection is custom-ordered and individually packed right down to the bread, condiment and snack in each student’s lunch. When you order Kid Chow for your child they will receive a personalized, homespun meal they will surely enjoy. Kid Chow’s menus celebrate the personal nature of food and seek to inspire kids to eat nutritiously. We consider it a privilege to serve your child.

We’ve included our fall menu on the reverse side of this letter. Here is what you need to know!

      Lunch Start Date: Kid Chow lunch service will begin on Monday, August 26th. Your first order deadline is Monday, August 19th. Kid Chow will deliver lunches to your students Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday.

      Pizza Day – This year Wednesday will be a PTA-sponsored Pizza Day fundraiser offered to ALL RUSD students. Pizza will be provided by local pizza vendors Rocco’s and Stefanos. Pizza orders are placed through a special online form and not the standard Kid Chow website.  Pizza Day flyers with the specific ordering information will be handed out to students the first day back at school. No Kid Chow is offered on Wednesdays

      Price: Each Kid Chow lunch comes with a portioned entrée by grade range and optional “a la carte” sides and drink. Entree prices are $3.75 (K-4th), $4.25 (5th-8th). Sides are $.75 each. Drinks are available for an additional cost. Kid Chow entrees are targeted at 80% of the USDA recommended portion size for each grade level and do not constitute a complete meal.

      Lunch Handout: At lunch time, each child will pick-up a brown lunch bag, labeled with their name and grade, which contains their personalized cold lunch items. Hot lunch entrees will be stored in an electric warming oven and handed out to students.
