School Council organizes lunch options for all Hopewell students for this first term of the School Year starting after Thanksgiving Day until end of January 2024. You will receive notices from School Cash Online with lunch order items, and we encourage you to finalize details as soon as possible. Orders must be in before Sunday 1 Oct 2023 for us to make arrangements.

Pizza Fridays

Pizza Fridays at Hopewell Ave PS provide a popular treat for lunch. See our calendar below, in this first term, pizza's will be served weekly from Friday 13 October 2023, with last order on Thursday 25 January 2024 (see calendar below). You can place an order for $2.50 per pizza slice (cheese/ pepperoni or vegan/GF). Pizza Fridays will run the full school year 2023/ 2024 thanks to our great collaboration with Panago Pizza.          panago pizza       

Subway Mondays

 subway sandwich We have also made arrangements with Subway to offer our students sandwiches on Subway Mondays in various options of toppings and sizes. The price for a 4” sandwich is $5.00 and 6” is $6.00. For those who have ordered last year, you will notice the increase of $0.50 to cover taxes, which were not included in last year’s prices and left us with very small margins.

Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday lunch service with Mazzola

If you would like to order more or different lunch options from Tuesday to Thursday, we recommend you check out Mazzola. This program will be run separate from the School Council organized Pizza and Subway days. Parents place their orders directly online on Mazzola’s platform (How to place an order). The menu will be available there as well, and there are options to accommodate allergies. Parents have until 7am the same morning to place their order and 9am to cancel an order.  Please check out Mazzola’s website for more information. mazzola logo 

What about healthy nutritious lunches?

We know many of you are looking for nutritious options for school lunches. If you want to know more about nutrition, do check out the Canada Food Guide with lots of information and a ton of meal planning, recipes and healthy snack resources and overall tips for health eating. Parents can sign up to receive the related newsletter.
We are actively looking into nutrition of the school lunches (following the School Food and Beverage policy) and are exploring various other options to include your kids' favorite veggies and fruits as a side.
Reality is: We need parent-volunteer hands to set this up! If you want to help take this forward, please reach out. We are very keen, but need someone to lead.

And the money? Lunches are our biggest fundraiser

Please know that Pizza Friday and Subway Monday is not just a great service, but also School Council’s biggest fundraiser with 100% of the benefits going towards enhancing learning across all grades and extracurricular activities such as field trips, and improvements to our School Yards. And 10% of the money raised goes to the Ottawa Education Fund, which spends most of their funding to support student’s food security in Ottawa. Students benefit from the fundraising efforts of the School Council and we greatly appreciate the support from our generous Hopewell community.

Do you want to volunteer?

Pizza Fridays and Subway Mondays are made possible by a great group of parent volunteers supported by Grade 8 students. Without these capable hands the distribution of the many pizzas would not be possible. Thank you!
If you would like to volunteer on lunch days in the school - and get to know other Hopewell parents - please add your name to the Lunch-list by filling out this quick form or contacting School Council: [email protected]
