Food Service

The Aoba campus is equipped with a full-service kitchen and cafeteria. While some students choose to bring their own lunches, each day our kitchen staff cooks and serves hot nutritious meals to students from kindergarten to grade 12.

Aoba has Five lunch periods per day in order to help maintain a distinct identity for each group:

  • Early Years: 12:00 – 12:25 (K2-K5 Rooms)
  • Grades 1 & 2: 12:25 – 12:59 (Cafeteria)
  • Grades 3-5: 12:50 – 13:15 (Cafeteria)
  • Grade 6-8: 13:30 – 13:55 (Cafeteria)
  • Grade 9-12: 13:05 – 13:30 (Cafeteria)

As with all else we do at Aoba, the most important considerations with the food service are quality and variety, and we ensure that the food we serve daily represents the variety that fits the mission and demographics of an international school. The food is great!

Recognizing Differences

At Aoba, success and diversity are core to our mission…which is also clearly evident in the food we serve. Our population is diverse, and often our students represent cultures and/or religions that prohibit particular foods. We accommodate this by ensuring that for every meal served there is an alternative meal that takes into consideration the food restrictions of that smaller group of students.

No Nuts!

Aoba is committed to offering a safe environment to students with food allergies. Some of our students are not old enough to make sound decisions when it comes to what should go into their mouths and are less able to manage their allergies. As a result, our kitchen is nut free. Further to that, products containing nuts are not stocked in our on-campus vending machines. For those students who bring their own lunches daily, we ask that no peanuts or tree nuts be brought into our school. The sacrifice of not having nuts or nut products in the school is a small one to make compared to the consequences a child with severe allergies could face. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us anytime.
