Beginning with the 218-2019 school year, Heritage Academy will be utilizing the services of My Hot Lunchbox for our scholar lunches. Those who currently bring their lunch to school each day may still want to set up an account and have some funds loaded, for those crazy weeks where you may not make it to the grocery store.

My Hot Lunchbox is the most cost-effective, easy to implement solution for schools needing to offer the option of a daily hot lunch.
Parents get tired of having to pack a lunch every single day and kids love the delicious options we offer from restaurants they are familiar with. Schools nationwide are seeing the benefits of My Hot Lunchbox.
Along with our nutritionist, we team up with local area restaurants to create the menus. Then process all parent orders through our secure online system, and coordinate delivery and distribution to your school. All of our lunches are individually packaged and labeled when they arrive at your school or camp.
We only partner with high-quality restaurants that can offer us options. Lori Stevens, our certified nutritionist, then works to coordinate these options into well-balanced meals that you and your children will love! We offer a completely peanut, french fry and soda free menu that typically includes options for a vegetarian, gluten-free and dairy-free option each day of the week. We are also conscious of offering portion choices for children in grades Pre-K through grade 12.
My Hot Lunchbox is a no cost alternative to a full-service cafeteria and hassle of an in-house lunch service run by parents and/or staff. We also give schools the option of using this as a fundraiser by giving them back a portion of the proceeds while keeping our lunch prices affordable for hard working parents.
Our customer service to our schools and their families is of the utmost importance. We strive to ensure quality food and service by carefully selecting restaurants that can accommodate our program. My Hot Lunchbox monitors the accuracy and reliability of the restaurants on a daily basis.

WHAT IF MY SCHOOL OR BUSINESS ISN’T CURRENTLY ENROLLED IN THE MY HOT LUNCHBOX PROGRAM?
If your school or business has not signed up with My Hot Lunchbox you will not be able to use our service. Please pass along our information or contact us and let us know who to contact within your school or organization!
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO START RECEIVING DELIVERIES ONCE OUR SCHOOL OR BUSINESS HAS SIGNED UP?
Our lunch program can be implemented at any time during the year. It takes between 4 and 6 weeks to set up the program and to begin the monthly ordering process. The timeframe depends largely on if your organization would like to have area vendors that My Hot Lunchbox already has relationships with or if they would like to use new ones!
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO ENROLL IN THE MY HOT LUNCHBOX PROGRAM?
Your school or business doesn’t pay a dime to sign up for the My Hot Lunchbox program. As a matter of fact, we give teacher’s meal discounts and can set up a portion of the proceeds from your lunch orders to go back to your school as a fundraiser. Well deserved!

We work with only local, high-quality restaurants that we pre-approve. They are expected to be prompt and deliver hot, fresh meals to your school or business.
ARE THE LUNCHES NUTRITIOUS?
Our certified nutritionist works with the restaurants we partner with to provide well-balanced and nutritious meals. We also leave it to you to make choices regarding you families nutritional needs. Our goal is to offer at least one vegetarian, dairy-free, and/or gluten-free option each day, when available from our restaurants. If you see something you would like added to a menu, that is offered from a restaurant we partner with, please speak up! We love recommendations and feedback!
