Hot Lunch


    The LunchMaster


    The Menlo Park City School District is pleased to announce The LunchMaster will continue to  provide lunch service for the 2019-20 school year.


    The LunchMaster has been in business for over 20 years and serves many local schools in San Mateo County and the Bay Area. They provide a large selection of meals that are well prepared and tasteful. All meals exceed USDA nutritional guidelines, contain at least 50% organic food content, and include meat and dairy that are antibiotic and hormone free. All meals are designed by a registered dietician who specializes in child nutrition. The LunchMaster offers up to 12 healthy choices daily on the elementary campuses including vegetarian, gluten-free and organic options. The LunchMaster meals typically feature a freshly prepared entrée, fruit, vegetables, healthy snack, and a choice of cold beverages.


    Hillview students now enjoy the Grab and Go Tuesday through Thursday. This allows your child to grab a choice he or she makes on the spot.

    Volunteers Are Essential

    We need your help to make this work.  We offer a lunch credit everytime you volunteer: when you complete a lunch shift, you earn one free lunch for your child! This is also a great way to stay connected with your teenager and share their experience in middle school. You can volunteer once a week, twice per month or once per month. Lunch shifts are Monday – Friday, 11:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. Contact the Hot Lunch Coordinator at, if you would like to volunteer! Click here for more information about volunteering at Hillview.
