The Lunch Box

For students who cannot afford lunch, The Lunch Box is located in 122 JSO and offers an assortment of snacks and lunch items that can be prepared in the microwave. A small selection of perishable items are also often available, as well as hygiene items such as toothbrushes, tampons, and pads.

The Lunch Box is run entirely on donations, so while the items are all free, students are asked to consider their level of need before making it their daily lunch spot.

If you have questions, suggestions, or want to donate to The Lunch Box, please contact Deena Lilygren ( or Charles Coulston (

Please do not drop donations directly in The Lunch Box. Donations can be dropped off with Deena, right next door in 120 JSO, or in 118 JSO with Sandi Howard.
