POLICY AND PROCEDURES FOR OUR LUNCH PROGRAM

LUNCH - Policy and procedures that we follow are based on our Food Vendor, the Chester County Department of Aging (CCDAS) who helps fund the program and the Health Department. We need your assistance to make this run smoothly and efficiently. The procedure we follow is:

  1. Lunch Sign-up sheets are placed at the Hostess desk for every day of the month approximately one week before the 1st of the month.
  2. You sign up for lunch, by printing your First and Last Name. There are no Take-out meals. In addition, per the Health Department and CCDAS you are discouraged to take any leftovers home because of the health risks of food contamination. Therefore, we cannot provide any wrap, containers or storage for this purpose. You must sign up for lunch by 3pm every Tuesday for the ENTIRE following week. You can also sign up for the entire month.
  3. The lunch order is placed with our Food Vendor every Tuesday afternoon. When the meals are ordered, the sign up sheet will have squiggle lines indicating no more meals are available.
  4. If you forget to order lunch ahead, you can sign in any open spots on the lunch sign up sheet. If there are no open spots, we can place you on a waiting list.
  5. Day of the Lunch - when you enter the building, sign into the Copilot and indicate you are eating lunch. Pick up your name card and take it into the dining room. You may place your name card on any table at an empty spot that has a placemat.
  6. Reason for Placemats - We use placemats to indicate the number of consumers eating lunch. We only place them on tables that have been sanitized. When the staff/volunteers are serving the meal, we serve to consumers sitting at placemats. Before lunch, for sanitary reasons, please do not sit and socialize at a placemat where there is someone else’s name card. (Sanitization guidelines dictated by Health Department.) To help accommodate larger groups or friends sitting together it is best that you come in early to save your seat.. If you are having difficulty finding places for everyone in your group, we ask that you get the assistance of Laurie (Kitchen Supervisor) to help you. DO NOT MOVE NAME CARDS.
  7. Money envelope is provided for your confidential lunch donation however we cannot provide change at the table. We do provide change at the hostess desk before lunch. Please get Change by 11:45 am.
  8. If you are not able to make your lunch reservation, please call us so that we can find someone else to purchase your lunch. Help us prevent waste.
  9. We serve lunch promptly at 12:00 pm. We need you to be seated by 11:55 am so that we can efficiently serve all components of your lunch. If you are not seated when we are delivering milk and juice, or serving coffee, tea and lunch you will be missed. We do not serve an empty place. If you are standing in the Dining Room then you are a hazard to others who are trying to serve you.
  10. It is your responsibility to clean the table, dispose of your trash and return utensils and cups to the Kitchen window for cleaning. All condiments are to be placed on the buffet table as well as your Place cards/Name cards which should be put in the basket provided also on the buffet table.

Remember that lunch is a great opportunity to not only get a nutritious meal but a way to socialize and get to know others. Please help us to give you an enjoyable experience.
