PDHS Cafeteria - Prices / Food Cards / Covid Safety

Price Change - As of March 22, 2021:

The Cumberland Schools Catering Society is a not for profit organization. All moneys made by the society go directly back into the schools we serve to help support the students. Our society consists of Oxford Regional Education Center, Parrsboro Elem/Jr./Sr. High School, Springhill Jr./Sr.High School, Cumberland North Academy, Spring Street Academy, Pugwash District High School, Amherst Regional High School, West Highlands, Cyrus Eaton, and E.B. Chandler Jr. High School. Our goal is to provide nutritious home cooked food at an affordable price. 

We have been reviewing our prices in February. Due to the increase in minimum wage effective April 1st, 2021 and the increase in food prices from our suppliers, it is impossible to maintain our current pricing. I am sure that all of you notice this when you are doing the grocery shopping for home. Therefore we have to bring in a price increase effective March 22rd, 2021. We look forward to serving you and would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your continued support.

Yours truly,

Jennifer Mapplebeck

Food Services Manager

Food Cards for Sale!

We are offering food cards for parents to purchase for students. You can purchase a $25.00 or $50.00 card for your child that will stay in the kitchen with Joanne. Each day that your child is ordering from the cafeteria they will place a completed order slip (including their name, class, and order items) in the class basket in the cafeteria. Joanne will contact you when the money is getting low and you can reload. Payment options for the cards are by cash or e-transfer only. E-transfers can be sent to and you must include in the e-transfer your child’s school, name, grade, and phone number. This option decreases contact for staff and students as less handling and exchange of money is required.


Covid-19:  Modified Methods to Ensure Safety

The PDHS Cafeteria Head Chef, Joanne Cottirll, continues to provide a lunch program with a modified our lunch menu.  Students in grades 7 to 9 are eating lunch in their classroom and their orders will be delivered to them in a safe manner while maintaining the service our students have come to expect. Students in grades 10 to 12 are able to use the cafeteria during their lunch time and will pick up their orders adhering to social distancing.  In an effort to meet the needs of our modified system, all food must be pre-ordered (including any condiments), upon arrival in the morning.  Students have been given order slips and the menu is attached to this post.  Each morninig students will place their envelope with the order slip and money in the grade level basket located in the cafeteria; supervised by a staff member.  Student's in grades 7 to 9 will receive necessary change when their order is delivered.  Please include the name and grade on the outside of the envelope.  Should students forget their order form and/or require an envelope, they will be available. 

Daily Items are posted on the attached Menu - At this time Daily Specials are unavailable until further notice .  Price of items are available on the menu.

Cafeteria Order Slips are also avilable and can be printed.
