Cafeteria - Holy Snacks

Holy Snacks provides cafeteria services and healthy meals and snacks to the students and staff of Holy Cross School.

The service is operated by Nicole Carter and Marnie St. Cyr. All food is prepared in a commercial kitchen, which is regularly reviewed by City of Winnipeg health inspectors, following all food safety and quality control policies.

All snacks and meals are prepared abide by the school’s Anaphylaxis Policy, meaning the kitchen, as well as all ingredients and products for sale, are peanut/nut free.

In addition, meals are made using reduced-fat dairy products, low-salt sauces and flavorings, and are filled with vegetables to meet the guidelines suggested by the Manitoba Nutritious School Policy. Meals offered also provide no more than 30 per cent calories from fat or 10 per cent from saturated fat, averaged over the week.

Should your child have a dietary restriction or allergy, or if you have a question or concern, please contact us and we will do our best to accommodate them. We believe no child should be left out.

All students are expected to eat lunch in the cafeteria unless families have given written notification that their son/daughter is permitted to leave the school premises.

If at any time a cafeteria supervisor considers that students are behaving in an unacceptable or unsafe manner, the supervisor may assign consequences as outlined in the school’s Code of Conduct.

Daily order forms

It is requested that orders be handed in for the week by Monday morning (for daily entrée specials) or daily orders by 9:30 a.m., in order to guarantee quantities.

Pizza lunch

A pizza lunch is offered every second Thursday. At $3.00 per slice or two for $5, order forms and payment are due by 9:30 a.m. on Wednesday of that week. As the order with the restaurant needs to be placed by noon that day, no late orders will be accepted.

A limited amount of extra pizza will be purchased and sold to those who did not place an order in advance. "Walk-ups" will be limited to one slice and we can not guarantee availability.

Things to remember:

  • Orders cannot be shared between siblings. For this reason, an order form must accompany each child. However, a family can choose to submit all individual order forms and payment via one child. For example, a family could submit four order forms with one cheque to the oldest child's teacher.
  • Pizza orders are to be paid with exact change, by cash or cheque. Any overages will be considered a donation. Cheques can be made payable to Holy Snacks.
  • In the event a child is absent and has pre-ordered, the order form and payment will be honoured for the following pizza lunch only
