A Message from the Principal
December 6, 2021
Dear Holy Family Catholic School Community,
Please take this survey regarding starting a meal delivery service for our students:
I have been in contact with Wholesome Food Services, a company that offers a school meal delivery plan in partnership with local restaurants such as Chick-Fil-A and Campisi's.
Parents are able to create an account with this company and have their student's lunch delivered right to HFCS.
HFCS needs 25 participants to make this a viable option, we would start small with a one day a week delivery, and offer more delivery days if this service is a good fit for our community.
Please visit this website for more information, https://www.wholesomefoodservices.com/for-schools/
Congratulations go to 7th grader Kaitlin Szostek for winning our HFCS Scripps Spelling Bee last week! She will go on to compete at the Scripps Area 16 Spelling Bee.
