Variety, nutrition and balance are the criteria which St. George's Food Service department embrace to ensure students are well fed.
From hearty breakfasts to four-course lunches, with choices of soup and salad bars, we have distanced ourselves from the school cafeterias of yesteryear. Daily deliveries of fresh produce and only Grade 'A' Canadian meats assure quality and freshness as our cooks carefully prepare meals for our hungry active boys.
Our menus run on 3 week cycles that change every term and feature international as well as traditional meals.
St. George’s School offers a variety of food programs to make sure that all food needs are met.
Programs that are offered between both campuses include: a hot lunch meal program at senior campus as well as junior campus, a bagged lunch program at the junior school, boarding student full meal program. The Saints Café retail kiosk is open at the senior campus for those that want to purchase items.
Hot Lunch Program
Junior school Lunch Program: Students can enjoy a fresh made hot meal with their peers in the junior school hot lunch program. All lunches are served family style with one supervisor at each table which means that boys can interact and socialize with their peers as well as learn to share. Junior school lunches include milk, juice, soup, hot entrée with healthy sides of vegetables and starches, as well as a dessert. Once the boys have finished what is on their platters and plates, they are welcome to come up to the kitchen for second helpings of entrée or soup or are welcome to see what is offered at the daily salad bar.
This program is a great social atmosphere that also teaches boys dining etiquette and the importance of teamwork, sharing, and learning to clean up after meals service.
Any boys that have diet restrictions or allergies can be accommodated with an alternative menu.
Hot lunch program fills up very quickly because of space constraints in the dining room, however the junior school bagged lunch program is a great alternative for those that wish to have their meals provided or are on the waiting list. Please see below for more information. Yearly enrollment for the dining room lunch program will cost $1200 per year for a whole year commitment into the program unless under certain circumstances approved by the foodservice department.
Lunch service for students at the junior school runs from 11:30 am to 12:00 pm.
