    ORDERING FAQs

    Is there anything special needed to access MunchaLunch?

    Munch is a web-based program so all you need is a modern browser and access to the internet!

    How does a family place an order?

    Each family creates a MunchaLunch family account by clicking the MunchaLunch Registration link (provided by the school), enters their email address and a personal password, adds children to their account, and then places their order.

    How can a parent place an order if they don’t have internet access?

    Orders can be placed using a desktop, laptop, iPad or cell phone. If a parent does not have any of these devices, perhaps they can borrow a friend’s computer for 5 minutes to place their order. Alternatively, the parent could be provided with a hard copy order form (a document which can be downloaded by the Lunch Admin) and the Lunch Admin would then create the parent account on the parent’s behalf and enter the order into MunchaLunch.

    How do parents order for more than one child?

    Easy. Once they have created the order for their first child they simply select “choose another child” and Munch will take them back to the beginning of the order system so that they can create their order for the additional child.

    How do parents get a copy of their order?

    The MunchaLunch system sends an automated email which includes a copy of the order. Parents can also login to their account anytime and download/save their order (and/or print a hard copy of their order).

    How do parents keep track of what they ordered for their kids?

    The MunchaLunch system sends an automated email which includes a copy of the order. Parents can also login to their account anytime and download/save their order (and/or print a hard copy of their order).

    How can parents be assured that their child will receive the correct order?

    Munch generates Class Distribution reports which include each child’s name and specific order. These lists will accompany the complete food order that gets delivered to the classroom and will be used to distribute the food.

    PAYMENT FAQs

    Can orders only be paid by credit card?

    MunchaLunch works with Stripe (as the credit card payment processor) and the large majority of parents will pay online using their credit card or debit-credit card. It’s fast, easy, and secure. However, it’s possible for you to also offer the cheque or cash payment option to parents and then enter those payments in the system (to credit the parent account).

    How long does it take to do an online payment?

    It’s quick and easy – 30 seconds at most!

    Are payments made separately or by lump-sum?

    Orders are placed separately for each child but the ‘payment due’ is presented as a lump-sum.

    MISCELLANEOUS FAQs

    Does MunchaLunch sell food?

    No, MunchaLunch does not sell food. The system allows school lunch and fundraising coordinators to set up their program online and allows families to place orders online. Coordinators can select any preferred local food vendors and other suppliers and enter those suppliers in the system.

    Is there any limit on the number of vendors, lunch items and menus that can be entered in the MunchaLunch system?

    No, there is no limit – it is completely up to the Lunch Coordinator. Munch can handle as much as you would like to enter.

    What if a parent forgets their password

    They can easily retrieve their password by clicking ‘forgot password’ on the MunchaLunch Login page. It will be sent to the family account email address in seconds.

    Is information stored in MunchaLunch secure?

    Yes. MunchaLunch uses fully encrypted secured internet protocols (TLS/SSL) which is the same technology used by large corporations and banks. The data is housed in a secured datacenter and information is never shared with any third party.

    What kind of support do you provide?

    We are known for the outstanding support we provide to school Lunch Coordinators and Fundraising Admins. The MunchaLunch support team is available by email, day and evening, 7 days a week.

    When we were with the other site there were sooooooo many complaints with every ordering session since that other site was not user-friendly at all (ha). I am delighted to say that our incredibly large ESL group have zero issues with ordering their hot lunches now. That alone is worth the annual fee.

    To the Great Staff at Munchalunch!

    I have been the hot lunch coordinator for our school for just under 9 years and can't say enough about the incredibly high level of service provided by your company. I have never experienced such excellent service from any other company, ever.

    From the quick turnaround time no matter how busy you are or how minor the question is, to the thorough and detailed response with easy-to-follow instructions all with genuine pleasure, patience and professionalism. You always cover all bases and have so much patience for new hot lunch coordinators ensuring that they know they can count on you guys always. You guys have always come through for me in a moment's notice and helped when we needed it.

    As a vendor, I have dealt with another platform used by another school and quickly saw how your platform was so much more user friendly and way less complicated. The way you have laid out your online platform has made it so easy for hot lunch coordinators to learn quickly and parents to order with ease. I love your software program and would not want to use anything else. And I have thoroughly loved working with your team!!! Thank you for your excellent service over the years!!!
