Lunch Options

Food Allergies

The Lycée is a PEANUT-FREE school. Please do not bring any foods with peanuts or peanut-based products for class snacks or student lunches.

Though our school caterers do not use nuts or nut products in cooking for the Lycée, be aware that some food items are prepared on equipment also used to process peanuts, tree nuts, and seeds.

Lunch from Home

If your family chooses to provide lunch from home for your children, please avoid using disposable materials and overpackaged food items. We recommend packing lunches in reusable plastic containers, reusable cups or bottles, and silverware.

Hot Lunch Program

Our caterer, Green Monkey, has built a new menu plan specifically for the Lycée, taking steps to build a lunch program that meets everyone’s needs. They listened to menu advice from parents and Lycée staff. They also borrowed ideas from other lycées around the world that are already implementing healthy, natural, organic lunch programs in their schools. The goal: to serve healthy lunches made with fresh, natural ingredients that are also enjoyable and filling for the students.

Lycée Café

Green Monkey hosts the Lycée Café for Middle and High School students as well as teachers and staff. The daily à la carte menu includes sandwiches, soups, snacks, and drinks.

Lunchroom Volunteers

We are looking for parents-grandparents-babysitters to help at the primary school cafeterias that run every day from 11:30am to 1:00 pm for all the children from 1st to 5th grade. This meaningful volunteer opportunity allows you to see your children in their everyday activities, meet their friends, teachers, staff and other parents involved and to develop your global knowledge of the school. We need two adults per day (one for each room) who can commit at least one day per month. The volunteer will be always with a teacher or someone from the LFC staff.
If you want to participate in this important part of the day, please register here.
