The PTO is very excited to announce the return of Food Days.  For newer families, Food Days is a fundraising program that offers Bobcat families the opportunity to order hot lunches through local vendors.  PTO volunteers then distribute those lunches to students on a daily basis.  Families familiar with Food Days will notice some significant changes as we have decided to partner this year with a 3rd party management company called Lunch Solutions.

Lunch Solutions is a company that works with local PTOs in organizing and managing their Food Days type programming.  Lunch Solutions currently partners with about a dozen schools on the North Shore including Edgewood, Ravinia and Sherwood.  By partnering with Lunch Solutions the PTO can offer a bigger selection of meal choices, more variety in local vendors and greater flexibility in ordering.  We are confident you will like this new direction we are taking.

Ordering meals through the Food Days program is optional.  It is not required.  It is simply a program that allows parents some options and flexibility in how they manage lunches for their children.  It is also a great way to support the PTO.
