School Lunch Program

Lancer Catering provides meals for DaVinci Academy’s hot lunch program. To participate in the program, families must place their orders prior to the start of every month. Monthly pre-ordering ensures that we have enough food for all students who have ordered a hot meal or milk.

PLEASE NOTE: If a student has not submitted a lunch order or has forgotten to bring a lunch from home, he/she will be given an alternate lunch of a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, fruit and milk. The cost of this lunch is $3.50.

As we cater all meals, we only have enough on hand for students who have ordered.  If your child needs lunch on a day they did not order, we have emergency meals available. Emergency meals consist of a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, fruit and vegetables and milk.

If needed, paper copies of the order forms can be obtained in the school office. When ordering online, use the link to enter your family account and then follow directions below for using this site.

  1. select the ? icon for additional directions,
  2. click “next” for the current menu,
  3. select the child’s first name to access their order form, and
  4. be sure to hit the SUBMIT button (bottom right corner) when you are ready to save each child’s order.

Important Reminders

  1. All orders are due by end of the school day on the due date indicated.
  2. The price for an additional slice of pizza or second servings (grade 6-8 only) is $1.50 per slice for ALL students, even if they are approved for free or reduced-price meals.
  3. You cannot pre-order meals for your child if you maintain a negative balance in their account. Please submit all required funds to bring balance up to date with the order form(s).
