With an internationally recognized and award-winning lunch program, Aurora Waldorf School provides a hot meal that nourishes our children, supporting the mission of our school. Chef Heather has been awarded the Kiwi Crusader Award for excellence in school meals and has been named one of Chef Jamie Oliver’s Heroes in his Food Revolution program.
We recognize the importance of nourishing not only our student’s minds but also their growing bodies, while building a communal meal experience. Whole, healthful, unprocessed ingredients with an emphasis on local and organic sources fill our menu. Vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free options are always available.
Chef Heather balances meals that are appetizing to young palettes while encouraging them to try new tastes and ingredients. While she always asks that the students "try a bite" of what she has prepared for the meal, we offer a daily dip option as an alternative, such as homemade hummus or almond butter and honey with fresh vegetables and pretzels.
School lunch is served Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday beginning at 12 noon. It costs $4 per lunch or $3.50 per lunch for everyday eaters. Lunch includes an entree and 1-2 sides of fresh fruit, salads, fresh vegetables and/or homemade breads.
Many thanks to all of our parents, students, staff, and especially our volunteer kitchen workers who have made our lunch program a great success!
