How to Order a Lunch for your child:
Once you have set up an account:
Go to the Farm Kitchen webpage www.thefarmkitchen.com, where you will be able to choose from the week’s menu and pay for your meals.
Please remember that the order deadline is 3.00pm on the preceding Tuesday for the following week.
If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact the Farm Kitchen. Please email them at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Helpful Hints for Parents:
If you add your email address to your account you will be sent a reminder each week about ordering your child/ren’s school lunches. You will also receive other updates.
If you have more than one child at the school, and therefore have set up two Farm Kitchen accounts, you can merge them both. This will help with weekly ordering of lunches, even if your children are in two different key stages in the school. Please just email The Farm Kitchen office and ask that your two (or more) children’s accounts be merged together.
