Hot Lunch Program

ACES School Council’s Lunch Program

Sometimes it’s nice to have a break from packing lunches! Pizza, pasta, submarine sandwiches, and hot lunches are available for pre-order. ACES School Council offers an optional lunch program to students at the 2nd nutrition break of the day as both a convenience to families as well as a fundraiser to support extra-curricular initiatives within the school. In fact, the lunch program is ACES’ main and most successful fundraiser. The ACES Lunch Program gives you the opportunity to purchase different lunches for your children while generating funds for the School Council. Proceeds from these programs go towards purchasing materials and resources to enhance the educational experience of the students at ACES.

The lunch program is strictly run by parents and not by the school. Were it not for the help of dedicated parent volunteers who make themselves available to sort, assemble and deliver fresh lunches to classrooms, the lunch program would simply not be possible. If you are interested in helping out on any given lunch day, please sign in at the office and make your way to the servery to find the Lunch Program Coordinator.

Frequently Asked Questions

1)  I am a returning student/parent but the hot lunches website is not recognizing my username or password, why is this?

In accordance with privacy laws, all accounts are deleted at the end of every school year. Please register a new account.

2)  Can I order food for my kindergarten student?  

At the request of the Kinder Team, we do not offer Lunch Program food to our kindergarteners at this time. Kinder families can order BBQ food for the year-end BBQ.

3)  Can I pay with cash?  

We no longer accept cash, as it requires significant volunteer time. Please pay by Bambora or cheque.

4)  Can I pay with School Cash Online?  

No, the Lunch Program is run by the ACES School Council (parent volunteers) rather than the school, and does not have access to use School Cash Online for payment.

5)  Can I order different pizza or Subway toppings?  

Not at this time.

6)  Can I order pizza only for certain days, such as once per month, or omit days for which I know my student(s) will be away?  

Not at this time.    

7)  Have you received my payment?  

Please log in to your account to check your payment status. Payments may take a couple of days to be processed by our parent volunteers, and to appear in your account.

8)  Does the ACES School Lunch Program offer assistance for hot lunches to families in need?  

In the spirit of accessibility, ACES School Council is happy to help cover the costs of a hot lunch program for any students in need. Please contact us directly at to specify your requests. Please rest assured that any such requests will be kept confidential.

Refund Policy

No refunds or replacement lunches will be given for missed days due to school trips, sickness, vacations, or inclement weather conditions when the buses are not operating but the school is open on Pizza Days, Subway Days, or Boston Pizza Days. Getting the right order to the right student takes a lot of parent volunteer power. Making last-minute adjustments risks mistaken orders -a chance we’d rather not take. Please keep in mind all proceeds from the ACES School Council’s Lunch Program go back to our students!

thank you

Thank you to our wonderful and dedicated parent volunteers without whom we would not be able to offer a lunch program, let alone one that runs so smoothly! Also, a big thank you to families for participating in the ACES Council Lunch Program!

Questions or concerns?





All lunches are in compliance with the nutrition standards established by the Ontario Ministry of Education’s School Food and Beverage Policy and Ottawa Carleton District School Board. All suppliers are approved by the Board as well, and offer adapted menus that meet the nutrition standards. For example, this means that the pizza your child receives may have been modified from “restaurant-style” pizza to meet these guidelines (i.e. for limited fat and sodium levels).
