Dining at Nardin
Welcome! At Nardin Academy, we believe that every student has the potential to do amazing things and make a different in the world - even in the dining hall.
It’s our pleasure to include your family as a local partner for the 8th year of our innovative, scratch cooked meals program. We work with nearly 30 preferred local partners including Promised Land Farm, Wendel’s Poultry, Produce Peddlers, and Regional Access: our Dining Hall works to feed our school population healthfully, while also supporting the surrounding community and sustaining our environment.
To participate in the hot lunch program, a student must have an account with the LunchTime account and ordering platform. The Nardin website offers links to LunchTime as well as PDFs containing detailed user instructions. Please access info by selecting “Dining at Nardin” from the drop down menu under Student Life on the home page.
Funds designated for the Dining Hall may be added to student accounts two ways; either online through the LunchTime site or via checks payable to Nardin Academy and remitted through the business office. Additionally, the platform allows for the set up of email reminders for low account balances or the set up for automatic renewal of funds.
Orders must be placed three days in advance to allow for processing.
Our goal continues to be to purchase and prepare as much locally sourced, sustainable and organic food as possible allowing us to make it easy for you and your children to make good choices and enjoy healthful tasty meals. Be assured that our sustainable dining hall offerings will be prepared in our kitchen under strict sanitary conditions with the health and safety of your students and our dining hall team as our priority. Orders will be delivered to classrooms in individually packaged disposable containers including utensils and condiments. Also, please note that due to the nature of this preorder delivery program, no beverages will be available for purchase. Many thanks in advance for your continued support as Nardin’s sustainable dining hall continues to grow.
