School Lunches Kids Love Delivered Daily


    Simple Setup

    Yay Lunch works with your school to create a lunch plan that works best for you. Get up + running in just a few weeks!

    Parents order online through our website, at zero cost or work for schools.
    Local vendors prepare healthy, hot lunches fresh every day.
    Lunches arrive at your specified lunchtime, individually packaged and labeled.

    For parents, ordering school lunch has never been easier. Families choose from a wide variety of hot, nutritious lunches their kids will love through our user-friendly online Lunch Calendar. Orders can be placed days or weeks ahead of time with confidence through our secure payment processor.

    We work with our school partners to craft exciting menus and to ensure our menus are accommodating of your student body’s dietary needs and your food allergy policies. Our menus are always nut + shellfish-free. And we always have a wide variety of gluten-free, dairy-free, egg-free and vegetarian options available. With regards to other dietary preferences, we omit based on school requests. It is important to note however, that we cannot eliminate the risk of cross contamination with our service as we rely on an extensive network of restaurant partners to fulfill our weekly orders.

    Becoming a Yay Lunch school is easy: there are no fees for schools and delivery is always free. We work with you to deliver lunches on your schedule. We can sort lunches based on grade, teacher, or classroom and we can accommodate multiple lunch periods.

    Menus are built with nutrition standards and family-friendly pricing in mind. We provided a variety of options throughout the week, so kids stay excited all week long as they get lunches from restaurants they know and love.
