Aurora Parent Council Lunch Program
The Aurora PAC, with the help of wonderful volunteers, offer a delicious and healthy daily lunch program for those who wish to order. Our school code is ASHL.
Answers to some questions you may have:
What if I don’t want to order online?
The only way to order lunch is online. If you do not have access to internet, you can contact Benita or Heather to discuss using a computer at the school to place your order.
What if I don’t have a credit card?
If you don’t have a credit card, you will have to set up a PayPal account.
What is Pay Pal?
PayPal is a company that operates a secure online payment system. Online money transfers serve as electronic alternatives to traditional paper methods like cheques and cash. PayPal charges a fee of $0.30 per transaction, meaning that $0.30 will be added to the total cost of your order (not $0.30 per day or per lunch)
Do I have to register for a PayPal account?
No. If you have a credit card, PayPal will process your payment as a “guest” without having to set up an account.
What is the deadline for ordering?
The deadline to order is Thursday noon prior of each week. Orders can be placed weekly, monthly or in one transaction for the entire menu session. *Full payment must be received for your order to be processed*
What if I have pre-ordered a lunch and my child is sick or not at school that day?
After looking at what many other schools do in this situation, we have decided that your child’s lunch will be saved with their name on it in the kitchen fridge until the next day. Refunds and credits will not be given.
What if a student is at school and doesn’t have a lunch?
While we no longer accept orders in the morning, we do not want any child to go through a day hungry. In situations where a student comes to school and doesn’t have a lunch, their teacher can ask the kitchen volunteers to prepare a cheese sandwich and an apple at a cost of $3. When this happens, parents will receive a note home letting them know. This service is not to be used as an ordering option and will be offered at teachers’ discretion. We do have students in need at our school who PAC provides regular lunch for. If you are interested in offering a donation to cover the cost of this it is greatly appreciated.
