Locavora Lunch Orders
Locavora are supplying our lunches for 2024 - Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. They are a well-regarded company. The process is quite straightforward. It is important to note the cut-off times for ordering lunches:
- Cut off time to place a lunch order is 8:30am for same day delivery Monday and Wednesday.
- To place an order after the cut off time on Monday and Wednesday, please call the store on 9481 4500, our store mobile on 0473 779 244.
- Late orders will not be accepted after 9am Monday to Thursday.
- Due to the high volume of orders on Fridays, the cut off time is 7am Friday for same day delivery.
- Due to the volume of orders, we do not accept any late orders on Fridays.
Catering is for lunch only , so we will all need to bring our own ‘playlunch’ every day from next term.
Our amazing P&F are now managing the distribution of lunches from next term, and even more amazingly, the roster is around 80% filled until November next year! Your support to make this big change work has been nothing short of remarkable - thankyou on behalf of all of our children.
