Lunch is served from 11:00 – 11:30 Monday through Thursday. Kindly arrive at 10:30 to set up and allow time afterward for clean up. Due to a pending change in our food service status with the health department, we are temporarily required to serve only individually portioned, prepackaged servings from an approved restaurant.  If you can’t be here for set up and clean up you are welcome to sign up and provide a gift card or make a donation for school lunch for the day you would like to provide lunch. 

This year, we’d like to make it simple. Here are some of the Nest Academy lunch options that are close to the school and cost effective. You are open to choose what ever you would like out of the options. We just need to adhere to the guidelines of everything being prepackaged.
