welcome to the real food lunch club!

Where Nutritious And
Delicious Come Together,
At The Lunch Table!

Let the Real Food Lunch Club (RFLC) take care of your kids’ lunches this school year with healthy, peanut and tree nut-free meals at one of our 12 schools throughout Toronto.

The RFLC is a litterless program so kids come to school with a labelled reusable container, cutlery, and a drink and we provide the fuel for learning.

About The Program

Real Food Lunch Club - Lunch Club Coach Service

Eat Real Food The Lunch Club Way! 

The RFLC menu features kid-favourites with a Real Food twist like our Mac Chick ‘n Cheese with carrot purée or our Vegetarian Pasta Bake with red lentil sauce. All enrolled kids enjoy the same meal unless they have an allergy or dietary restriction. All meals made in the Real Food Kitchen are peanut and tree nut-free and meet nutritional standards for schools within Ontario.

New for 2017/18! We’ve increased portion sizes for the recipes that kids can’t get enough of and are sending an RFRK-approved treat once a week. These treats could include RFRK-made cookies & muffins, fresh fruit or nut-free granola bars from our trusted suppliers.

Lunch Club Coach At Your Service!

Every RFLC school is stationed with one or more Lunch Club Coaches (LCCs) to serve up our nutritious meals. LCCs put a little bit of everything in every kid’s container to help develop familiarity for new flavours! Sometimes kiddos will receive a little bit of fooducation with a fun food fact too!

Did you know that the top 5 veggies grown in Ontario are: Tomatoes, Beans, Carrots, Cucumbers, and Peppers? RFRK loves local food!

LCCs are trained on proper food safety and handling to meet Toronto Public Health standards and to use RFRK’s tricks and tips for encouraging learning eaters.

Litterless Lunch Love

The RFLC is a litterless program – kids come to school with a labelled reusable container, cutlery, and a drink. When the lunch bell rings, kids approach the LCC at the trolley with their container and receive a nutritious hot meal. When they’re finished, kids pack away their container, wash them at home, and bring them back for the next RFLC lunch.

Bringing a reusable container and cutlery empowers kids to be environmental leaders and revolutionize their school lunch experience by keeping the Real Food Lunch Club litterless!

Head to your school page to see specific pricing.

Missing A Day?

For any planned absences like a field trip or doctors appointment, just fill out this form to let us know with 3 business days notice and a refund can be applied to your credit card.

Sick Day?

If your child is sick or there is an unplanned day away from school, we will make sure that that food is enjoyed by another child. Refunds are not possible within 2 business days of lunch service.

Need A Break?

Withdrawing? We’re big advocates for sticking with the program for at least 1 month. It lets kids try a variety of meals, build up familiarity for new foods and lets positive peer pressure run its course.
Still need a break? Just let us know by filling out this form before the 25th of the month, and we’ll process the withdrawal for the end of the month. You won’t be billed in the future.

Real Food Forward

The Real Food Forward (RFF) program turns a little into a lot. It leverages donations from parents and Real Food for Real Kids into free or subsidized school lunches for families that need a helping hand. Since its implementation, RFF has provided over 25,000 free meals to kids in elementary schools throughout the GTA!
