Lunch Program

Hello parents and students,

Welcome back!

The PEI School Food Program is a provincial lunch program that offers ALL island students K-12 a healthy and affordable lunch 5 days per week!

The PEI School Food Program will be accessible to your school once again this year, but through a NEW online ordering platform! All Public Schools Branch schools will have access to this online ordering platform.

Bon Appétit is an online ordering platform that allows you to skip the lunch line and order online! The platform is available in 11 languages. User registration is now open. Once registered, you will receive automatic program communications!

Ordering will take place biweekly (10 school days at a time). Ordering will open on Saturday mornings and close on Thursdays at noon for meals to begin the following Monday.

When meals are ordered online, they will be prepared with the student’s name and delivered to the school at lunch time. Your school will offer a pickup location or will distribute meals directly to the student’s classroom!  

Tomorrow, Saturday Sept. 4th Bon Appétit will open for ordering for the first meal cycle (Meals Sept. 13-24). Ordering will close on Thursday, Sept. 9 at noon.

To place a meal order, you will need to add a diner. To add a diner, you will require the student’s classroom information. Please find attached a manual to the parent portal.

Please use the following classroom information to create a profile for this diner:

  • Student Name:
  • Classroom*:

Pay What You Can Program

PEI School Food Program Inc. is a not-for-profit organization with the purpose of providing healthy and affordable meals to ALL Island students.

The PEI School Food Program will offer a Pay What You Can Program (PWYC). The PWYC Program allows students to choose the amount they can pay:

  1. I can pay the entire meal value
  2. I can pay a partial amount of the meal value
  3.  I cannot pay the meal value

Please pay for your meal if you’re able to, to help those who are not! Collectively, we play our part so that every Island student has access to a healthy lunch to help them grow and learn.

We encourage you to check out the program online or on our social media platforms @peischoolfood to view our NEW! Fall menu. 

We look forward to providing you with healthy, affordable meals for the 2021-22 school year.
