St Aloysius provides an efficient and effective school canteen to meet the needs of the school community.
The canteen is open Wednesday to Friday for lunch and recess and Monday to Friday for lunch.
The canteen provides a selection of fresh and healthy food choices at affordable prices.
The canteen follows the NSW Healthy School Canteen Strategy and is accredited with the NSW Government as a Healthy Canteen by following their strict criteria.
The Government labels all groups of food into two categories:
* Everyday – Fresh foods which include school-made salads and fruits. This must make up 75% or more of the menu.
* Occasional – Foods that should only be used as treats. These foods are to be 3.5 star or higher rated and must not be more than 25% of the menu.
St Aloysius Canteen is currently 86% everyday and 14% occasional.
The diverse range of food offered and an efficient service are only possible due to voluntary help from parents, friends and relatives of students.
Prices are kept at a reasonable price as the canteen is viewed as a service and does not make a profit.
The Canteen uses the QKR online ordering system, which can be accessed by mobile phones and is available 24/7 and up to 2 weeks in advance.
