What’s the problem?
Currently some schools do not have a school food service solution, meaning students being fed becomes a challenge. In particular these challenges include:
Supplying cost effective, healthy meals
Many of the current onsite canteens do not have the space, time or expertise to create cost effective, healthy meals to sell at their canteens. This means that they generally rely on pre-packaged food they can heat up on site for resale. Often these pre-packaged foods are full of sugar, fat and preservatives. Although some canteens have followed the traffic light classification system introduced by the Ministry of Health, this is no longer strongly enforced meaning students are not presented with healthy options at their canteens.
Financially viable on site canteens
Many primary schools around the country no longer have canteens operating on their school premises because it is not financially viable. This is particularly true for smaller schools. This leaves many parents without any options to purchase school lunches. The low margins also mean that those canteens who are operating are struggling to get and keep quality staff and products for the school.
Most primary school canteens currently are using a cash based ordering system. This involved parents having to write orders onto an envelope and dropping it in manually to the school. The canteen worker then has to transfer all orders by hand, checking cash along the way. The process is painstakingly slow and inefficient.
So what can we do about this?
LunchOrders is an innovative solution that address the above problems. Through the combination of using cutting edge technology and expertise in the field we are revolutionising the school canteen market.
The down low
We operate from a centralised commercial kitchen. A preset menu, compiled by chefs and nutritionists are available for parents and students to choose from. Parents are able to browse our menu through our innovative online ordering platform, and orders can be placed anywhere at anytime. These orders are then prepared for the day and delivered right to their classroom door in a personalised lunch bag. This menu and platform will be extended for exclusive staff menus as well. Lunch ordering will never be the same again.
How much does it cost to have the service at our school?
There is absolute no cost involved to have LunchOrders at your school. In fact, we work very hard to give a little back to the school through our lunch gifting initiative.
Will it require extra commitment from our staff?
We work with every school to customise the delivery times and processes to align with what best suites their systems. Many schools already have a distribution system in place, and we will connect with that to get the LunchOrders to the classroom.
So how do we sign up?
If you would like to have LunchOrders at your school, please get in contact with us by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org and we will come and meet with you to discuss the options.
