We are committed to providing healthy eating choices.
The College Canteen operates 5 days a week. While there is a canteen manager, volunteers play an important role in providing this service. We have a full commercial kitchen – so no dishes to wash!
The canteen menu follows our Healthy eating Policy and is based on “Go For Your Life”, a Victorian Government initiative for school canteens.
- GREEN GO FOOD: These are foods that are low in fat, low in sugar, low in salt and HIGH in nutrients! These include fruit, salad, wholemeal sandwiches, lean meat.
- AMBER CAUTION FOOD: These are foods that provide some nutritional value but are moderately high in fat, salt, sugar and energy such as pasta, focaccias, jaffles.
- RED STOP FOOD: These foods are poor in nutrients, high in fat, sugar or salt such as lollies, chips, soft drinks, cake. These foods are only available from the canteen on Friday’s.
We endeavour to be a NUT FREE canteen. The canteen committee develops a winter and a summer menu with daily lunch specials. The canteen makes a lot of its own food such as healthy muffins, soups and pureed fruit icy poles. We have a brown paper bag order policy with token money sheets also available from the front office. Just place the stickers to the value of the lunch order on the lunch bag.
Grandmas, grandpas, retirees or just someone with time on their hands, please give us a thought and consider volunteering in our canteen. Contact us if you are interested in volunteering in some way to help us to continue to provide this valuable service to our students.
