Lunchroom Program 403-777-8480 ext.2
Chinook Park School will be offering both Fun Snacks and Fun Lunches this year
for students. This is a significant and important fund
raising initiative for the school that also allows students and parents to
take a break from routine morning snacks and lunches. Lunches are available for
Grades 1-6. Snacks are also available for our Kindergarten
Through the Healthy Hunger online management system schools
create Fun Food order forms from selected restaurants. Students and parents
then order and pay for food using credit card or INTERAC® online.
After that, note the Fun Food events on your calendar so that you don’t
pack additional morning snack or lunch items. Healthy Hunger will then
arrange morning snack or lunch delivery on the day of the Fun Food event and
parent volunteers will help distribute the pre-ordered food to the classes.
would like to participate, please register your student(s) on the Healthy Hunger
website at HealthyHunger.ca using the information sheet. Once you have completed your registration you will be able to view
the upcoming morning snack and lunch dates. Please note that you must re-register
students each year for this food program.
From the Lunchroom
We welcome students to the Noon Supervision Lunch Program. Noon Supervision registration is now available online through the CBE website through your "My CBE Account".
Our school has a 4 day program (Mon – Thurs). Waiver applications are available online, on the same website page, for those who are eligible. Please register your children for the Noon Supervision program if they stay at school during the lunch break.
Remember to clearly label your child’s lunch bag to avoid lost or misplaced items. Please send a nutritious and sufficient lunch for your child. We do not have extra utensils so please include those, if needed.
Lunch Program Attendance
We require a note or early day phone message if your child will not be attending the Lunch Program. Permission by parents via a note, phone or e-mail is required prior to students being permitted to leave the school during school hours. If your child will be staying for the drop-in lunch please send a note or phone the lunch line to leave a message. There is a $5 fee for drop-ins.
If you have any cares or concerns about the lunch program, please contact Joyce Nisker at email@example.com.
During lunch students are expected to show respect for themselves, others and school property. For more details, see our Behaviour page.

Brown Bag Lunch
Program Brown Bagging for Calgary’s Kids (BB4CK) program works in partnership with Calgary schools to make healthy lunches for students who would otherwise go hungry. Chinook Park School is able to offer this service to our students. If you would like to sign up your child(ren) for this program or volunteer to assist in lunch preparation, please contact Mrs. Poole at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Waste Free Program
This program was established to reduce the amount of garbage collected at our school for dumping into our city waste. Prior to the launch of this program, we collected at least four huge bags of garbage each day from the Lunch Program. To reduce this enormous amount of waste, we launched the Waste-Free Program, which is our part of our school’s recycling program. When students arrive at Chinook Park School the recycling program starts immediately.
What do we recycle?
- Compost – any kind of fruit or vegetables only (pits, seeds, skins, etc.)
- Milk and juice containers
- Waste-free – Each child is responsible for taking their lunch box leftovers home. This creates an awareness of waste, enables additional recycling and gives parents an opportunity to see what did not get eaten that day.
Allergies – No Nuts or Peanut Products Allowed
At Chinook Park School, children with identified severe allergies are known to our staff. Families have ensured that medications are on site, and staff have been trained to recognize symptoms and administer medication. Parents are asked to avoid peanuts etc. from classroom snacks (i.e., birthday treats). See more on our Illness & Medical page.
