May Menu

We are excited to announce that RCI’s Food and Nutrition class will once again be opening a canteen for the year! For those of you who are new to the school, this is a student-run course that runs from 11:30-12:20 on EVEN SCHOOL DAYS and makes and sells meals as well as snacks/desserts. Students will be able to order meals and buy snacks on the days that we are open for the remainder of the school year.

 Please read the points below to get a feel for how things will be working:

  • We will be opening on Wednesday, October 4th for snacks/desserts only. On Friday, October 6th, we will be serving our first meal (as well as snacks/desserts)
  • Meal specials will be offered every odd school day (example: wraps and veggies, spaghetti and meat sauce, salad and a bun, perogies and sausage, soup and biscuit, etc.) for $5 per meal. 
    • There will be a maximum of 40-60 meal specials available each day. If students are counting on the daily meal special, they need to be sure to sign up as early as possible. First to sign up are guaranteed the meal.
  • Students can sign up for meals every morning on the sign-up sheet by the office between 8:45am and 11:30am.
  • Snacks (cookies, cereal cakes, muffins, etc.) and desserts will be available on odd school days for varying prices ($0.50-$2). Students do not need to sign up for these prior to lunch and can line up at the cafeteria at 12:30 if they would like something.
  • Monthly menus will be posted around the school as well as posted on the school website.
  • When the lunch bell rings at 12:30, students who ordered food will line up in the cafeteria to receive food and pay for their meal. The canteen will only be open until all students have moved through the line to get their food (10ish minutes), so students must line up immediately to get their orders.
  • Students can pay for their meals at the counter with cash or prepay and have a card with their name on it loaded with any dollar amount for future purchases. If students are paying at the counter, only cash will be accepted. If parents or students would like to prepay a certain amount, they can give the office cash, a cheque made out to “Rivers Collegiate”, or e-transfer any amount over $20 (see e-transfer steps below).
  • Note: NO IOU’s WILL BE ACCEPTED. All meals, snacks, and drinks must be prepaid or paid for in person by the student. 


We expect the first few days of the canteen to be quite busy with many students not having pre-paid cards set up. We encourage students and parents to start paying the office this week (cash, cheque, e-transfer) to load money on their cards so that we are a little less busy on the first few days and can get students their orders in a timely manner. (cash, cheque, e-transfer)

Please note that if your student had a remaining credit from last year, their credit will be available to use during this school year!
