LunchBox

Ardrossan Elementary School (AES) Lunchbox Welcomes You to our On-line Website!!

Registration & Ordering Begins August 30!

Never Registered Before? Here’s How:

  1. Go to www.aeslunchbox.com
  2. Click the "REGISTER" menu at the bottom right hand corner to sign up.  Our school access code is AEHL.  Enter your name, email address and phone number, then a user id that you will use for access to the hot lunches application.  Enter a password and then enter it again to verify that it is correct.
  3. Once registered, you will be logged into the website
  4. Important Note:  You need to know your child’s teacher assignment before you can continue. Please add your students by clicking on the "STUDENTS" button below or the "PROFILE" menu tab in order to proceed. Once your students have been added to the system you will be able to place lunch orders immediately by clicking the "Order" button below each child's name.

IT’S THAT EASY! 

But I registered last year, do I register again?


Yes!  It is illegal for our program to have accounts for families with children who no longer attend our school.  For those of you who have forgotten your user name/password from last year, don’t fret, you get to start all over again. It is easier and more efficient to delete all accounts and start fresh.  This process will occur every new school year.  (Please see notes on Credits before you re-register.)

Not participating in hot lunch?  We encourage you to register even if your child does not participate so that you are able to receive emails about our hot lunch program and fundraisers that we hold throughout the year.

Why Online?


The Lunchbox implemented our on-line ordering solution 3 years ago.  We love it and all of our families love it too!  For us at The Lunchbox, it gives peace of mind that orders are entered directly by parents (or your children, it is that easy). This way reporting for ordering, distribution and costing are accurate, credits/refunds show immediately on your accounts, and the email distribution system allows us to be in direct contact with you.  Our system gives us the opportunity to send out E-news regarding new menu items, reminders (orders/payments are due; let you know what you ordered for the week; and what days you volunteered to deliver lunch.)  

What if I don’t have a Computer at Home?


Are you able to access a computer from your work? Local library?  We realize that this may be a concern for some families.  In consideration for this issue, the Ardrossan Elementary School office has computers available to you to complete your on-line orders.  

You can also access the website with mobile devices.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact support@aeslunchbox.com.

Is there a Cost to me?


Yes, the cost to participate in our hot lunch program is a one time $1.00 per child for the entire school year.  This fee will automatically be added to each student’s account upon the placement of their first lunch order. 

How do I Pay?


Our on-line system allows us to offer you the opportunity to pay using your personal PayPal account, VISA, Mastercard, or AMEX.  Please note that similar to any on-line payment solution, there will be a transaction fee added to your final total. (2.9%+$0.30).

We will continue to accept a cheque or cash.  Input your family order online and simply print out a ‘Remittance Form’. Then send it to the school, along with a single cheque payable to AES LunchBox or the exact amount in cash, in a sealed envelope.  It is not our responsibility to hunt down these payments.  Please put them in your child’s agenda with a note to the teacher to send to the office or take them to the office directly.

All orders and payments must be received by the specified deadlines so that lunch orders can be processed on time.  If not received, the orders will be deleted.

Does The Lunchbox still need Volunteers?


ABSOLUTELY!!! We require volunteers to deliver the lunch to the classrooms for classes K- grade 3.  

Important Changes 

We have set up our system to administer the volunteers automatically now. The on-line order form asks each day if you would be available to deliver lunch. We have told the system that we need 14 volunteers per day to deliver our lunches and as soon as 14 volunteers sign up, the volunteer question will no longer show up on the ordering form. Please be advised that The LunchBox will no longer be offering volunteer credits. Please refer to our ‘Hot Lunch Volunteers’ document at the bottom of October’s Order Form for more information about volunteering this year.

The Lunchbox thanks you in advance for your patience and consideration as we start a brand new school year!  If you have any questions or concerns, please direct them to info@aeslunchbox.com

Support issues will be addressed within 24 hours and should be directed to support@aeslunchbox.com .
