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

All meal plans include a full serving of protein, grain, and vegetable.
The Real Food Lunch Club is a monthly subscription program* with a set average cost that varies per school. Pricing is based on the number of days every week lunch is served at your child’s school and the number of LCC’s required for an efficient lunch service. Head to your school page to see specific pricing.
*The subscription will automatically renew on the first (1st) of each month. The Visa or MasterCard provided through our secure checkout will be charged for the full following month unless you let us know that you want to withdraw before the next billing cycle.
It’s a breeze! Just head to your school page and select a meal plan (see above) that best fits your kids eating style. If there are any allergies to let us know about, you will be able to do it at this time.

Absences + Opting Out Of The Program
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.
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
In 2008, when Real Food for Real Kids started its Lunch Club program in elementary schools, we created a subsidy program called Real Food Forward (RFF). RFF provides free lunches for students that need a helping hand. Since its introduction, RFF has provided over 29,000 free meals to kids in elementary schools across the GTA!
Contact your school principal for more information on how to participate.
