Lunch Ordering

ISLA uses a PRE-ORDER on-line system, OrderLunches.com, to process all meal requests. Orderlunches.com provides a stress free way to order lunches for your student(s) and pay with a debit card, credit card or personal check. There is a nominal fee associated with the use of our online system. 

Please see the Order Lunches link below for program information, registration, and dates as to when the meal ordering window is open. 

Once the window closes, lunches cannot be ordered and families will need to send a lunch from home for the month. Late orders will not be honored.
