Welcome Back Peabody Families!

For over 20 years, Peabody Cafeteria has been

making food that kids love and parents appreciate.

We strive to feed your children well and make it fun in the process. Our goal is to provide cooked-from-scratch meals using local organic produce when ever possible. We offer a kid-friendly main dish, whole grain, fresh vegetables and a fruit everyday. We want to encourage trying new things and thoughtful eating. This year we are planning more hands-on cooking experiences for the students and having them more involved in our signature Celebrity Chef and Holiday Lunches.

Here is how you can help support our efforts this year:

            Please create an account at www.myschoolbucks.com. This website/app allows you to load your child's cafeteria account and track their cafeteria activity. You will also be automatically notified when your child's account is running low. Your participation in this service will allow our cafeteria staff to focus on cooking - not collecting. 

            Post our menu/calendar in a prominent placeEach month we will send home a cafeteria menu in your childs school folder. It will include our breakfast and lunch menus for the month, school events, and some nutrition, and activity tips. Please go over the calendar/menu with your child. (This same calendar is available on this website under the Parents tab and then Cafeteria tab. The site also contains a detailed nutritional analysis of all our menus, and updates on what we are doing in the cafeteria.)

            Encourage your children to eat at school. This supports their health and academic performance, while maintaining the financial health of our school cafeteria. Cost for Breakfast is $1.50 / Lunch is $2.75.

 

            Join your kids for breakfast, lunch and special events. Your kids light up when they see you in the cafeteria, and we work hard to make the food delicious and healthy for grown ups too. Cost for Breakfast is $3 / Lunch is $5

            Volunteer! Parent volunteers make a huge difference in our cafeteria. If you are interested in helping  - contact Chef Laurel at llyle@peabodycharter.org
