At the start of the 2019-2020 school year, we introduced a new lunch program at Saint Joseph School. Chris Saracino of Chris' Pancake and Dining in south St. Louis City, Chris'@ the Docket downtown, and Bartolino's Restaurants is in charge of the lunch program.
Chris' has been serving school lunches at St. Ambrose and St. Gabriel schools for more than ten years. Their goals include providing healthy lunches and snacks as well as serving the students in a timely and efficient manner through the line.
To facilitate parent ordering, menu management, and lunch service, we are using a program called "EZ School Apps Lunch POS (Point of Sale)." We have created accounts for parents within the EZ School Apps portal; there you may put funds on account and pre-order lunches. You may also opt to send cash or a check in to school and the funds will be applied. The EZ School Apps program will send you a notification when the available funds are low so that you may replenish.
