We are currently serving our sixth menu. Due date for this menu was May 16th, 2019
PLEASE NOTE: If you have missed the deadline for ordering....don't panic.....although there is a $1.50 late fee once the due date has passed, you can still place an order throughout the menu. We do need 7 days in advance for any orders past the due date but we can make it happen.
If you are having issues with placing your order, we are always available to help you through the process.
We are proud to be offering one meal option per week that is made with organic ingredients and with the same amazing service and dependability you can trust.
Any product that claims to be organic is regulated by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA). Products that claim “organic” must demonstrate that this is truthful and not misleading, and that all specific requirements have been met according to the inspection agency. Our meals will be made with items that adhere to this regulation...it’s our commitment to YOU!
Meals with this symbol will help parents to choose the healthiest option:
Call or email us. Ultimately, the decision lies with your Parent Council and the Principal at your school. We would be happy to offer a presentation at your next PAC meeting to explain how the process works and answer any questions you might have.
We sure can. We offer vegetarian, gluten-free and lactose-free meals that can meet your child's allergy needs. Please contact us and we can set up a meal plan for your child.
Harvest Fresh is locally owned and we believe in supporting the community we live in so all of our suppliers are local companies.
Harvest Fresh requires 48 hr notice to cancel a meal and provide you with a credit for a future meal. If a credit cannot be used and a refund issued, we deduct the 5% donation that we have already provided to your school and the cost of any postage and handling.
If you would like to cancel a meal with more than 7 days notice log onto your account and go to My Orders. Find the desired meal listed under My Upcoming Meals and click the yellow X. A credit will automatically be credited to your account.
If you would like to cancel a meal with more than 48 hours and less than 7 days, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
No credits will be issued for cancellations with less than 48 hours notice.
This is a decision made by your individual school. Harvest Fresh offers Online Ordering which is available to all schools using Visa, MasterCard, Visa Debit or E-transfers. Some schools still accept cash as payment but Harvest Fresh does not accept cheques as a form of payment.
We are parents here at Harvest Fresh and understand children can get sick on very short notice. As previously mentioned we only issue credits with 48 hrs notice. In those cases we suggest that you arrange to have your child's lunch picked up from the school or donated to another student. We deliver all lunches to the school and leave them there.
What happens if my child has issues with their lunch at school?
Our delivery staff travel with spare meals just in case. It is very important that our Lunch lady Delivery person KNOWS if there are any delivery issues or problems with their lunch. Look for our staff - usually set up with a table. Or ask the office to help find us. We never want your child to go hungry.
What happens to my child's lunch if they are not at school?
We call these UNCOLLECTED LUNCHES. An uncollected lunch is not the same as cancelled lunch and is NOT credited. Each school has different policies for these meals. Some schools will label and hold them in the fridge if they can while others cannot keep the meals due to their Board regulations and will donate them to other children.
A parent can also arrange with the school to have the meal picked up. Any remaining meals are donated to other children and /or families in need.
What happens to my child’s lunch on a Bus Cancellation Day?
A parent can also arrange with the school to have the meal picked up. Any remaining meals are donated to other children and/or families in need.
In the event of a bus cancellation due to a Snow or Fog Day but the schools are still open we will make every effort to deliver lunches to the schools. If the weather puts our staff at risk we will cancel lunches and provide families with a credit or arrange with the school a rescheduled date.
We will post our status on the website by 7AM on a Fog or Snow Day to let parents know if we will be delivering or not. To be safe, please pack your child with a lunch on bus cancellation days.
Yes, you can always place a late online order but there will be a $1.50 late fee for the entire transaction. In addition, the meals must be placed 7 days in advance and not all dates may be available.

My girls are loving the meals!! They were very excited to be able to pick their meals out themselves!! I think the choices are great!! I love having the break from packing 4 different lunches once a week, I get so tired of having to try and figure out what to send the kids!! Its definitely a great program!!
Our daughter's favourite meal is Chicken Caesar in a Pita. As a parent, I love the fact that she can have a hot, nutritious lunch at school that is healthy. It's a great way to break away from the regular boring 'sandwich' lunches and I love only having to pack a snack on Wednesday evenings!
I have been ordering from you for 4+ years and have come to love the quality of food you provide.
We really appreciate the meals the kids get and they look forward to their Friday lunches.
As a parent of a graduating student, I can honestly say that I am going to miss Harvest Fresh Days. I think what you are doing is great and I hope you continue with your success.
I love as a Mom not having to pack a lunch once a week and when my kids come home saying they "LOVED" their lunch from Harvest Fresh!
I am so grateful for your generosity and compassion for my sad little boy who thought his mommy forget about his lunch :-(. I have always spoke highly of this program but will make sure to pass on how happy I am with your customer service as well.
We very much enjoy these lunches. Our son counts down the days to Friday and can't wait for his hot lunch. And as a member of the parent council thank you for providing this great opportunity to our school.
Everyone is loving the meals. I keep telling the parents who haven't tried it out to order. They have and they said their kids love it.
Great new additions to the menu btw. My daughter is loving her Thursday lunches. Keep up the awesome work.
Thank you for everything...My daughter loved your meals!! Wishing she had them in high school but unfortunately not.
Your team never disappoints.
I just wanted to thank-you for all the wonderful meals you provided for my daughter throughout the years. Today is her last one since she is a Grade 8 student and has a field trip next week. We were talking this morning about it and we will both miss the weekly treat of not having to make a lunch and knowing that you will be bringing her a great one. Thank you and keep up the amazing work.
