Hot Lunch Family
School Year 2014-15
Dear St. Monica
My name is Stacy
Gonzalez and I am excited to announce that I
will be providing hot lunch for your children
this coming school year at St. Monica Parish
School this coming year.
I am a former St. Monica
school mom. My son, Domenico, graduated from St.
Monica last year. As a mother of two growing
boys, I understand how important nutrition is
for developing minds and bodies. Kids need
filling, nutritious food that will help them
concentrate on their school-work and feel
content throughout the day. Every child is
different and I believe that serving up family
style meals will provide an opportunity for each
child to have a lunch tailored to his/her needs.
With the longer lunch period, this will provide
kids with enough time to relax and eat.
"Family Style" means
that instead of pre-portioned meals, the kids
will have portions dished up on real plates
according to their needs. Younger children will
have smaller portions, and older children will
have larger portions. If children are still
hungry after finishing their portion, they will
be welcome to come up for another helping. If
there isn’t enough for seconds, there will be an
alternative, such as a ham & cheese sandwich and
fruits or vegetables.
During all days except
Fridays and Ash Wednesday, there will be Chicken
Caesar Salad or sandwiches as an alternative to
the main course in the hot lunch. On Fridays
there will be a choice of a vegetarian salad or
tuna sandwich, unless otherwise noted.
My goal is to provide
quality food that will contribute to a
successful school year. I feel blessed to have
been selected to provide lunch for your children
and I look forward to cooking delicious food all
year long! I am open to meal suggestions, so
please don’t hesitate to send a request to me at
Attached you will find
the menu for September, along with pricing and
instructions on how to pay. Lunch will be $5 and
will include milk. Water will also be provided.
I am excited to be a
part of the new St. Monica Family Style Hot
*Note: St. Monica hot
lunch will continue to be nut free.
