It’s Lunch Time comes to Yukon Montessori School!

Hello YMA Parents,

We have some great news:  It’s Lunch Time (ILT) is coming to Yukon Montessori School starting next week.

If you have not heard of this new Whitehorse based company run by Echo Johnson and Lynda Peters of Downtown Daycare fame, please have a look at their website or find them on facebook under It’s Lunch Time.  They offer organic, fresh and tasty lunches delivered to local schools for a very reasonable fee. They are inspected, insured and Food Safe trained.  They are currently delivering lunches to Whitehorse Elementary, Hidden Valley, Jack Hulland and Elijah Smith. Friends at Hidden Valley have given me rave reviews.  ILT has offered to deliver to YMS on the same days as Whitehorse Elementary so that we do not have to worry about the minimum order number of 15 lunches (Tuesday’s and Thursday’s).  That’s right – a day off (or two) from making lunches – hurray!  You need not order every time – just when the cupboard is bare or when you need a break!  For now we’ll try both days/week but if our demand is not that high, we may drop down to one day/week or just a couple of times/month.  It’s trial and error to start. The delivery days are always noted on the order forms.

How it works:

The process is outlined on their website, but in a nutshell, by tomorrow afternoon (or so), Yukon Montessori School will have its own order page.  The dates of delivery for February and the complete menu will be listed there.  If you would like to order a lunch for your child, fill in the form for your preferred date(s) and submit payment 2 days prior to the order date.  ILT will contact you once your order has been received and they will send you an invoice.  On the day of the lunch delivery, they will arrive with labeled lunches for those who have ordered around 11:30 a.m.  Oh yes, teachers can order too – just click ‘adult’ on the Grade Level drop down menu of the order form.

And the final bonus?  They donate 25 cents from every order back to the school.

If you have any questions, please let me know and please have a browse through their website:!

Happy snacking,
