Real Food for Real Kids

Welcome to the Real Food Lunch Club


Invest in your kids with healthy lunches prepared in the Real Food Kitchen!

Family Style Lunch

RFRK brings back the tradition of sharing meals together! Unless a child has an allergy or dietary restriction, all kids enjoy the same menu.

Our Lunch Club Coaches put a little of everything on each child’s plate to help develop familiarity for new flavours.  We encourage a “two-bite rule” but don’t worry, kids will never be forced to eat anything. Kids are encouraged to invigorate their senses and savour the delicious food!

Hassle-Free Registration

Online registration is a breeze! Create a family account and then add a subscription for your kid(s). Once you enter your credit card info into our secure server, you will be automatically billed at the beginning of each month. You can log in at any time to review your account or create exception dates for planned absences.

Stay tuned, registration for the 2017/2018 school year is coming soon!

An Environmentally Friendly Way to Eat Lunch

Kids bring their labelled, reusable lunchware and cutlery and a water bottle to school. At lunchtime, kids approach the Lunch Club Coach at the trolley with their lunchware and receive a delicious hot lunch. When they’re finished, kids pack away their dirty dishes, wash them at home and bring them back the next day.

Bringing a reusable container empowers kids to be environmental leaders and revolutionize their school lunch experience by keeping the Real Food Lunch Club litterless!

Tasty and Nutritious

Real Food Lunch Club programs can run from 2 to 5 days per week. Our menu features mouth-watering, globally inspired dishes that kids love, and is completely peanut and tree nut free. Kids choose to sign up for Omnivore or Herbivore options, with delicious substitutes for children with allergies or special dietary restrictions.

Lunch Club Coach at Your Service!

Every Lunch Club needs a Lunch Club Coach – that special person who serves the food and encourages and inspires kids to enjoy new flavours.

Lunch Club Coaches are trained on: food safety as per Toronto Public Health requirements, tips and tricks on how to get kids excited about Real Food, quick and efficient service, and the unique logistics at each school. We like to recruit someone from your school community who’s just right for the job!

100% Kid-Approved Dishes

We know that “kid food” really means grown up food with cooler names! Kids can dig into:

  • Chicken Meteorites
  • Vegetarian Pasta Bake
  • Tang Ku Chicken
  • New England Chowdah

We Go the Extra Mile

The Real Food Lunch Club is as stress-free as it gets for school administrators. We recruit and train the Lunch Club Coaches and Assistants to set up, serve & clean up daily. Our Lunch Coaches manage the attendance list, including all new registrations, meal plan changes, and withdrawals. They’re also up to speed on how to gently encourage kids to try new foods and flavours! All of our lunches meet PPM 150 requirements.

Hey Teachers, are you jealous of how delicious your students’ lunches look? Why not become a Real Food Role Model?!

If you’re a staff member at a participating school, you can enjoy delicious, hot lunches too! Staff receive a double portion at a kid-sized price. And don’t worry…if you’re strapped for time, you can cut the line!

Real Food Forward

The Real Food Forward (RFF) program turns a little into a lot. It leverages donations from parents, community members, and Real Food for Real Kids into free or subsidized school lunches for families that need a helping hand. Since it’s implementation, RFF has provided over 25,000 free meals to students in elementary schools throughout the GTA!
