Here at Grace we take great joy in our hot lunches! We have been blessed with Director Gena Keenan who has made our hot lunch program unlike any other in the county.  Gena started our hot lunch program over 14 years ago and continually seeks healthy improvements. She knew we could have a better hot lunch program but she set out to make it a superior one.

A few years and a lot of hard work later, our hot lunch program soars. Our Hot Lunch Cook, Melissa Robles does an excellent job of preparing fresh lunches on a daily basis. Our lunches are all prepared on campus and, you guessed it, home-cooked.  We have a full commercial kitchen, consistent “A” health grades and the capability to put out over 200 hot lunches an hour.  Take a look at our hot lunch menu and you will see most meal plans on an 8 week rotation. Gena and Melissa put an enormous amount of care into planning each monthly menu.  We do not have many high fat, highly processed food items, but plan low fat, high protein balanced meals. We use lean meats, serve low-fat milk, do not add extra salt and we make use of many spices in food preparation. Vegetables are usually raw or steamed and we even try to throw a vegetarian meal in the menu once a week.

Our Hot Lunch Program is available five days a week. Orders are placed via the internet at
