Welcome EC families!
We are excited to continue serving the EC community through food!
Our team works out of the kitchen in the high school campus, Eagle Cafe, where students can purchase food and enjoy fellowship in the ditto Commons.
High school students may pre-order lunches, and/or purchase breakfast, lunch, and snacks. All elementary, upper elementary, and middle school students have the option to pre-order lunch on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. Tuesdays and Thursdays will remain as Chick-fil-A and pizza day fundraisers for the PTO. Middle school students will also have the opportunity to purchase snacks before the start of the school day.
EZ School Apps will be used for seamlessly ordering and planning student meals. This software is a cloud-based program that you can easily access from your phone or computer. Parents can pre-order meals and upload funds to student’s accounts via the security of PayPal.
Orders may be placed week by week, or as far out as one month in advance. The deadline for pre-ordering food for the following week will be the Tuesday prior by 11:59 PM. This gives the food service team enough time to plan, order, and prepare accordingly to minimize waste.
Below you will find instructions for signing up with EZ School Apps, how to pre-order meals, and Eagle Cafe policies. Please feel free to email any one of our staff members with questions you may have. Have a great school year!
