The school has a canteen that operates each day for breakfast, morning tea and lunchtime. Lunch orders are also available. A current canteen menu is always available on Compass.
The aim of the canteen is to provide healthy choices at reasonable cost. The JFC canteen embraces and supports a whole school approach to healthy eating.
We believe that our students should be supported to receive the healthiest food we can give them – freshly prepared foods made with minimal processing and additives and full of good nutrition.
Our canteen menu is structured according to the Dietary Guidelines for Children and Adolescents in Australia as well as being supported by the Victorian Healthy Eating Advisory Service. On offer are a variety of healthy choices with our menu changed seasonally.
We aim to provide children with consistent messages about healthy eating to help them develop their own healthy food choices and we have a supportive volunteer base to ensure healthy foods are available and encouraged.
