Food Services

Variety, nutrition, and balance

From hearty breakfasts to four-course lunches with choices of soup and salad bars, we have distanced ourselves from the school cafeterias of yesteryear. Deliveries of fresh ingredients and Grade A Canadian meats assure quality and freshness as our on-site trained chefs 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 both the Senior campus and Junior campus, a bagged lunch program at the Junior School, and a full meal program for boarding students. The Saints Café retail kiosk is also open at the Senior campus for those that want to purchase items.

  • Junior School Hot Lunch Program

    Students can enjoy a fresh-made hot meal with peers through 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, water, homemade soup, homemade hot entrée with healthy sides of vegetables and starches, as well as a dessert. Dessert is a fruit Mondays through Thursday with a treat on Fridays. 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 fosters a great social atmosphere that teaches the boys dining etiquette and the importance of teamwork, sharing, and learning to clean up after meal service. 

    Any boys that have diet restrictions or allergies can be accommodated with an alternative menu such as the vegetarian or gluten-free 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 at the School, or are on the waiting list and would like to join the program in the meantime. Please see below for more information on how to enroll. 

    Lunch service for students at the Junior School runs from 11:30 am to 12:00 pm.

    Sample Menu:
    Milk, Water, Manhatten Clam Chowder, Five Spice Marinated Asian Pork Bao Sandwich with Coleslaw and Rice,  Dessert of Peaches
