What is the Cheder Chabad hot lunch program?

We are a federally Subsidized Hot Lunch Program offering healthy, well-balanced menu includes whole grains and a variety of fruits and vegetables. We encourage your children to build a healthy plate – to fill half their plate with fruits and vegetables, select whole grains, and choose fat free or low-fat milk. We hope that you will also encourage your child to make these healthy eating choices. All food will be Cholov Yisroel/Pas Yisroel and delivered daily by our food provider. 

How often will hot lunch be served? 

Lunch will be served Mondays through Friday for all departments. 

Can my child take only on pizza day only?

·      Gan-5th Grade: 1 slice of pizza, fruit, vegetable, and milk

At this time, we do not have the option to order more slices.
