Can my student select their meal by themselves at the cafeteria?
Because Grades K through 3 have a very tight lunch schedule, we pre-box their lunches with the same fresh and wholesome food we serve all day to senior students, faculty, and staff into bento boxes. We strongly encourage parents to select the meals online together with the student. If no meal is selected, hkaEats Chef personally selects the dish best suited to the student based on the student’s dietary restrictions/allergies and personal preferences. If a student doesn’t like the lunch selected, and the parent has not given instruction, the student can ask for a different main dish.
Grade 4 through 12 queue up and make their own selection at the counter. While it is not required to pre-select meals for Grades 4 and 5, parents are strongly encouraged to pre-make meal selections with their children both to ensure parents know what their children are eating and because this helps guide daily preparation, which helps cut food waste.
