Fun Lunch

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Fun Lunch?

Fun Lunch is a PTO fundraising program that offers Willard students a catered lunch once a week (usually Fridays) for a fee. The program is offered to students in grades 1-4 and younger students who attend Willard for a full day.

Fun Lunch is the PTO's biggest fundraiser. It also provides a great break for the person who usually makes lunch!

Our goal is to provide students with a well-balanced meal that includes an entree, fruit or vegetable (for example, carrots or apple slices), and 2 Oreo cookies for dessert.

We try to use local vendors who offer a few choices to meet a range of preferences. Menus and vendors may change from school year to school year, but food offerings typically stay the same throughout each school year.

View this year's Fun Lunch offerings on the Fun Lunch ordering page.

What does Fun Lunch cost?

Each weekly Fun Lunch offers an entree for $6 and optional extras servings/sides for $2. Extras/sides are available only if the entree has been ordered.

Our schedule rotates menus from 4 different vendors. You can order from all or just some of the vendors. Your cost for each vendor is multiplied by the number of times that food will be served.

For example: $6 for pizza entree of 1 slice + $2 for extra slice of sausage x 5 dates when pizza will be served = $40

When and how do I order Fun Lunch?

There are 2 Fun Lunch ordering periods during the school year:

1st Ordering PeriodAugust 14-28Fun Lunches from September through January
2nd Ordering PeriodJanuary 7-19Fun Lunches from February through May

Late Orders: Late orders will be accepted for a brief time only and include a late fee of $15. New students who enter Willard during the school year may order pro-rated Fun Lunch without a late fee.

Payment: Fun Lunch orders are placed here on the PTO Web Store. This method is the most convenient and minimizes ordering errors. To pay by check, please request a Fun Lunch order form from the school office.

Food Safety

The District and the PTO realize that certain food products contain peanuts and/or nuts, or are prepared with peanut and or nut-based products. If your child currently receives Fun Lunches or is interested in joining the program and suffers from a known peanut and/or nut allergy, please contact Willard School immediately. While the District and the PTO have taken precautions to strictly avoid peanut and/or nut based products in the program's lunches, the District and the PTO cannot ensure that all Fun Lunches will be peanut and/or nut free. Please call Willard School if you have any questions.
