Give Yourself a Break this Summer
Sign up for our Chicagoland Healthy Lunch Program
We partner with Chicagoland school lunch provider, Gourmet Gorilla, to provide better nutrition and safer food, but also help the local economy, promote food security, and encourage environmental responsibility. The Gourmet Gorilla menu offers a daily hot lunch option and 12 cold lunch options, providing you with a wide variety of options to choose from every day.
The hot menu options change daily with popular items like BBQ Chicken, Mac and Cheese and Crispy Chicken Tenders appearing regularly on the hot menu, and Turkey Swiss, Sunbutter & Jelly and Ranch Chicken Wraps on the cold menu. Plus, your camper will receive a delicious morning snack (click here for a sample snack menu). All their meals are kid tested and developed with 1 to 12 year olds in mind. With Gourmet Gorilla your camper receives a daily:
- Morning snack
- Lunch comprised of a generous entrée with two sides (hot and cold options)
