Important Lunch Information

 Dear St. Finn Barr Parents: 
 
Last year we partnered with CEI (Children's Empowerment Inc. http://www.ceisf.org/) to provide our MondayWednesday, and Friday school lunches -- this organization had been providing our Extended Care program with meals and we received positive feedback about the food quality which informed our decision to contract with them for lunch
 
We were notified in late July that they would be closing their kitchens and outsourcing all of their food service programs to Better 4 You Meals (www.better4youmeals.com). Because we now must meet the vendor, taste the food, etc. to setup the program for the year, we have decided to evaluate two additional companies to find one that is the best fit for our school in terms of food quality, business competence, and value. We hope to have this task completed by September 11th, when the lunch program begins, but we cannot guarantee that it will be ready to launch by that date. As such, we will move ahead with our plans to kick off our Tuesday/Thursday in-school lunch program on Tuesday September 12th and will hold on starting MWF until we have secured a new contract. Please note: there will be no school lunches served between August 23rd - September 11th. Please be sure to pack your child a lunch everyday during these two weeks.
 
All are invited to share the contact information for any high quality lunch vendors you recommend. We will update you regarding the official launch of our new MWF lunch as soon as we have made a commitment. 
 
We apologize for any inconvenience caused by this delay, and appreciate your support as we secure the right program to nourish our wonderful students.
