Q. How do I order lunch for my child?
A. The Lunch Box Program menu for the current month will be posted on our website at www.lunchboxprogram.com. If you are a new user, you will select “Log In/Register, and create an account.” You can create an account without uploading a balance, however, the easiest way to order is to add funds to your account before making a purchase. You can then select “auto refill” which will refill your account using the card on file with the amount you determine once your balance drops below a certain threshold that you also determine. Our accounts act similar to EZPass, where as you order, the balance clicks down. Once you have an account, you will select “Order Online.”
Q. What happens if my credit card information does not go through?
A. This is a frequent issue. Check that the address in the Lunch Box Program system matches the address on your credit card. If these do not match, the payment will be declined. Also, check the expiration date. If all else fails, call (410) 667-1100 and ask to speak to a Lunch Box Program representative.
Q. How often do I have to order?
A. You can place orders once a month for the upcoming month, every week or every day for the next day. The menu closes at midnight for the following day.
Q. Is it safe to order on-line?
A. Lunch Box Program uses safe and secure on-line transactions with Authorize.net. Authorize.net knows data confidentiality, security and integrity are three of your highest concerns with Internet usage. They take many precautions to ensure your information is safe and secure. The Authorize.net on-line commerce system uses Thawte (a subsidy of Verisign) Secure Socket Layer (SSL) Certificates, an industry-standard encryption technology which encrypts all organization and participant data transmitted over the web. This highly advanced technology prevents unauthorized people from reading the data that you or your participants send over the web. Authorize.net also encrypts passwords and credit card numbers in their password protected database. Credit card numbers are stored for the ease of use for returning participants

Q. In case of inclement weather, is Lunch Box canceled?
A. If schools are open, even with a two hour delay, we will serve lunch. Our staff still comes in and begins prepping and preparing lunches very early so that we can deliver on time in the event that schools are open. If schools start with a two-hour delay and then switches to closed, no credits will be issued. All prepared meals are then delivered to local police & fire stations or other local charities. If schools cancel the night before, we can plan accordingly by adjusting our employees’ schedules and not preparing the food at all. When that happens, all meals will be credited back to your account.
