As PPCA’s food service since 2016, The Lunch Ticket is known for offering lunches that are made fresh each day, along with snacks and drinks that are available during break for secondary students. Ice cream treats, candy, and extra milk are offered for purchase above the daily meal cost.
The Lunch Ticket also makes meals available to PPCA students who are enrolled in Crusader After School Care and Summer Care.
PPCA families must register via an account through www.myschoolaccount.com. Students are identified through finger scanning and individual numbers assigned to accounts.
Funds should be placed regularly into student accounts. Families may set up alerts to their accounts, so that emails will automatically be sent to them to indicate when their students’ accounts fall short of a preselected amount.
The Lunch Ticket uploads monthly menus to the PPCA website and families may pre-select their lunches via their students’ accounts.
Each day, PPCA students, faculty, and staff are offered a regular hot lunch or alternate combo meal, such as chilcken and fries. Fridays are known as “Pizza Day” when freshly made cookies are the day’s dessert.
Popular among the elementary students is the weekly “Breakfast Day” which is usually served on Thursdays. Since the middle and high school students may purchase breakfast items during their mid-morning break, an alternative lunch is available (such as burgers, sandwiches, and/or soup) on Breakfast Day, in addition to the daily alternative offering of baskets of chicken and fries.
Students may also bring lunches from home but must follow the lunchroom rules set forth by the administration and in the Student Handbook regarding microwave use, glass bottles, soft drinks, etc.
The Lunch Ticket uses fresh ingredients when preparing meals. All salad dressings, soups, breads, rolls, desserts and breaded items are made in the school kitchen by trained staff. These items are never shipped in as pre-made or frozen.
Student lunches are $5.50, which includes the food listed on the monthly menu and a small drink. Freshly made garden salads, grilled chicken/fried chicken salads are available as options to students, faculty, and staff who pre-order them.
Secondary students (6th-12th grade) may purchase a large drink for $1.00.
NOTE: The pre-COVID menu had a wider variety of items on its daily menu, which Debbie Hartung, aka The Lunch Lady, hopes can be reinstated and offered in the months and years to come.
