Kirby School is proud to offer one of the highest quality school lunches around and our Executive Chef, Tracy Landry, creates fun and nutritious meals sourced from local and organic ingredients whenever possible.
Kirby's restaurant-quality lunch features hot entrees such as lasagna, Indian cuisine, ramen bowls, and build-your-own taco bar (to name a few). Lunch also includes various green salads, fruit salad, and a fresh soup made daily. To complement lunch, we offer herbal iced tea and infused water.
All diets are taken into account with our lunch menu. We serve vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, and dairy free options daily. Students and faculty often eat together in our cafe, and students may choose to eat either indoors or outdoors.
All prospective students who visit campus for a shadow day will enjoy a complimentary lunch.
Lunch is offered daily to all current students at a rate of $10 per day. All cafe charges will be billed to the student account and a statement sent each month.
Students are welcome to bring lunch from home, we have refrigerators and microwaves available as needed.
