Choicelunch to serve lunch at San Carlos Charter in 2013-14
We are Choicelunch and we are so happy to be serving the families of San Carlos Charter. We thank you and appreciate your business. For 10 years now, Choicelunch has been serving up the best school lunches in the Bay Area and the state, by offering families wholesome food choices using locally-sourced, all-natural and organic ingredients such as seasonal fruits and veggies, antibiotic and hormone-free meats, and 100% whole-grain breads baked daily. If it's in our fruit and veggie bin and it's on the Dirty Dozen list, it's either organic or confirmed pesticide-free from the source. We have nothing to hide and our parents have access to the nutritional analysis and allergen information online. Our program and facility is 100% nut free and our menu offers your children 16 entrée choices per day (4 hot and 12 cold) made fresh in our kitchens daily. At school, Choicelunch kids are empowered to make healthy choices from our daily assortment of fresh fruits and vegetables, healthy snacks, and drinks (milk, H2O, juice). Our menu always provides for children that are vegetarian or require meals that are free of the top 8 allergies including gluten free and dairy free.
Constantly innovating, we were the first company to develop an iPhone and iPad app for parents to order, cancel, and filter allergens for their children’s lunches!
We have designed our own biobased lunch containers, sporks and fruit bags and are a Bay Area Certified Green.

Be A Hottie!
Are you looking for a fun and rewarding way to earn volunteer hours this year? If so, consider joining us as a hot lunch server (affectionately called "hotties").
Hotties help to guide the learners and to distribute hot entrees. Once the learners start coming, the whole process happens rather quickly and the job takes about 45 minutes. It's a great way to meet learners from all grades and an extra bonus of showing up to work in the middle of the day means you get DOUBLE hours for your work.
After hot lunch, volunteers are needed as extra pairs of eyes on the playground, so if you work for the whole lunch hour, you earn two hours towards your volunteer hours. Having Hotties help while the children are eating and then out on the playground makes a big difference!
Each lunch shift requires two volunteers to make the process efficient and we have lots of experienced hotties who are able to train new recruits. If you aren't sure that you would like to make a one lunch a week comittment, consider being trained to fill in as a substitute as needed.
If you're curious to see how it works, drop by the area behind the CLC office where we set up during lunch. If you have any questions, send me an e-mail at swillmeeds941 @ gmail.com
