Mendelson's Kosher Gourmet (MKG) - Vancouver Talmud Torah

We are excited to continue our partnership with Mendelson’s Kosher Gourmet (MKG) to Vancouver Talmud Torah. Operating out of our meat and dairy kitchens, MKG aims to offer healthy, nutritious and delicious hot lunches to our students. As a full service caterer, our community will be able to order Shabbat dinners and holiday meals. Special events can be catered on or off school premises.

Parents can order hot lunch from one to five days a week in two-month blocks (e.g., September & October, November & December, etc.) through the Munch A Lunch website (PayPal accepted). .

To plan accordingly, please place your orders by the stated deadlines. Reminders appear in the weekly Hadashot e-newsletter, on the school website, and in the weekly upcoming lists of activities emailed by the communications office. The cost for a regular portion hot kosher lunch with sides is between $6.50 to $8.50.

Three days a week are designated dairy days and two days will be a chicken/meat menu. To accommodate special dietary needs, vegan and gluten-free options are offered daily. Fresh sandwiches and salads are always available.

Hot Lunch Rules

  • Please make all changes or cancellations to hot lunch orders BY 3:00 p.m. for next day orders
  • If your child is sick and the lunch order was not canceled, their lunch will be packed up and ready to be picked up at the end of the day in the Cristall Dining Hall. We will keep packed orders for 48hours until discarded.
  • If your child has forgotten his lunch and requests a meal from the kitchen staff, we will kindly ask them to go to the office to call home.
  • Please note, that we are a kosher kitchen and are unable to provide cutlery and glassware to your kids for food brought in from home. We are also unable to provide them with take out cutlery for their meal. We ask you to please do not put us in the situation of having to say no to them.
