Helpful options that continue: advance ordering, direct billing, online menus, and ordering.
You can begin ordering from PK Kitchens using their website. Menus are generally posted the end of the month for the following month. You can order in advance. All meals ordered from this website are delivered to Selwyn School just prior to the start of lunch periods for our students. Hot meals are stored in heat-retaining packaging and we have microwaves should anyone want a warmer meal.
The following Q&A covers what you need to know to order from and better understand the new lunch service from PK Kitchen. If you have other questions, please let me know. Go online ASAP and order your lunches.
The ordering website is available now; please begin ordering for meals to be delivered as of Wednesday, 8/15.
The website is https://www.menupkkitchen.com.
While we request orders be made as far in advance as possible, the deadline for orders is 11:00 am the day before the day of service. Example: Order by 11:00 am Tuesday for Wednesday lunch service.
You can order as far in advance as there are menus posted. Typically, each month is posted the end of the prior month.

The smaller, child-sized portion has a bit less of the main protein or main ingredient (e.g. less chicken) than the regular sized. We understand that a number of people and smaller children eat less, and therefore waste much of the food in the larger portions. This will help reduce waste and lower cost for those opting for smaller sizes.
When you select an item to order and the options for that item, there is a field labeled “Special Requests” into which you need to indicate:
The date you want to order
Name of the person eating the lunch (student or faculty) and grade (K, 1, 2, etc)
Any food allergies or any requests for gluten-free options
These are entrees you can order any day of the week, a recurring menu that is always available to you. It currently has nine different options.
Make sure you indicate the day for each daily staple in the “Special Requests” field.
The “weekly menu” are the entrees that change every day, usually 2 options unique to each day.
You are ordering direct from PK Kitchen, a private business, and as such, sales tax needs to be paid.
Please ignore this request. Just click to the next page. PK Kitchen knows that all orders are delivered to Selwyn School in time for the lunch hours on our calendar.
