Ordering                           

School meals are ordered on a monthly basis using the Boonli online platform. Ordering will close 10 business days prior to the first day of each month in order to meet our caterer's ordering deadline. This is to give our administrative staff time to confirm our counts and place orders, and caterer enough time to plan and prepare meals. Lunch and breakfast orders can be placed online until 11:59pm on the date posted above.
