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 exceed nutritional standards for schools within Ontario.

Kids will also receive 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!

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 are required to come to school with a labelled reusable container, cutlery, and a drink. Bringing a reusable container and cutlery from home empowers kids to be environmental leaders. Revolutionize the school lunch experience by keeping the Real Food Lunch Club litterless!

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

When we started the Real Food Lunch Club (RFLC) program in elementary schools, we created a subsidy program called Real Food Forward (RFF). RFF leverages contributions from RFRK, parents and generous community members, to provide free meals for families that need a helping hand.

Did you know that families registered in the RFLC have the option to Pay It Forward to help a family in need? If you plan for your child to be absent on a lunch service day, simply choose “Pay It Forward” when completing the absence form and your refund will go directly towards subsidizing a free meal.

Since its introduction in 2008, RFF has provided over 31,600 free meals to families in need across the GTA!

For more information on how to participate as an RFF recipient, contact your school principal.
