Fun Foods Lunch Program: It has come to our attention that there are concerns regarding disruption of service for some families in the Fun Foods lunch program. Upon review of the situation we have discovered there are accounts which have not received final payment on their orders, thus service is suspended until the accounts are paid in full. We kindly ask DL families who are experiencing this delay to review your Munch-a-Lunch account to confirm your payments have been made.  Parents if your child does not receive a lunch and you have paid for it, please ask your child to communicate this to the Gr 7 delivery volunteer who will direct them to the kitchen where we always have extra items they can take with them. Any parents experiencing issues which are not payment related we ask that you please contact us directly at emaildlpac@gmail.com so that we can address each of your concerns individually.

The PAC Executive extends their gratitude to the Fun Foods Teams past and present for their continued service over the years. Many new families may not realize that we have gone from a manual paper/pen ordering system to an online order & payment system in a matter of a few short years all due to the efforts and commitment from 4-5 Leaders plus a small handful of Volunteers each year who service over 250 students weekly.

Between meeting the vendors, creating menus that meet various dietary needs, ordering the food, shopping for snacks and beverages, prepping bins, organizing parent and Gr 7 volunteers to sort and deliver each bin weekly (with the correct food, beverages, condiments and utensils!), printing reports/labels for food items and paying the vendors on time it is astounding what 4-5 Team Leaders can accomplish.  Together this team brings in $20,000 in funds that are critical to our annual fundraising efforts. 100% of these funds come back to our students and school in the form of new technology, creative arts performances, speakers at assemblies & sporting and DPA equipment, to name just a few items.

We continue to encourage all DL parents and grandparents to donate their time and energy to this much needed Volunteer led program – we welcome your contribution. Without you we cannot sustain this program!
