What our clients say

Hot Lunches Online

We were on a web-based program prior to coming onto Our program was very basic but it suited our needs. However, due to support issues, we had to investigate other options and was the one we chose. No regrets. This program is so powerful, flexible and easy for anyone to use. The support is second to none. And Mark, what can I say about Mark; he is a technical genius and extremely patient with those of us who are technically challenged. It is rare to meet a "techie" who is so good with people. I love that if we question him on why the program does this and not that, all of a sudden you will get an update saying that what you mentioned is changed. Coming from a background of very little support, it is a real treat dealing with Mark.

I am a parent on the HOT LUNCH COMITTEE from Carnarvon Community School in Vancouver and have just started to use the program since September after many years of frustrations with PAPER orders. I have found an overwhelmingly positive response from parents who have found it easy and fast to use( and love the paypal option) and from our hot lunch committee who have found pizza days go faster and smoother. I had and still have questions as they come up with the system and Mark is very fast at responding to all my emails. All in all, a good choice by our school.

The Belgo PAC purchased the program in June 2009, and began using the program for hot lunch orders this September. We can not say enough positive things about this program, it is extremely easy to use and a phenomenal organizational tool. We have not encountered any "glitches" and all of the transactions and ordering has been smooth and hassle free.

Additionally, the customer service Mark Fester provides is extraordinary. He always returns calls and emails in a timely manner and provides regular updates in relation to program changes etc. Mark has modified the program based on customer suggestions and we were especially impressed when he took the time to meet with us personally when we were considering purchasing the program.

The PAC at Belgo Elementary will continue to purchase the program, and it is well worth the cost.

At Acme School, we used the Hot Lunch Program for a few years before we decided in September to switch to another program. After 4 months of frustration with the other program, we decided to return to Hot Lunches in January 2018. Best decision ever!
It only makes sense to use a program that was designed for that reason. The support I receive is also amazing.

Thanks, and can I tell you how absolutely amazing it was to press a key and get a delivery order last week? OMG, what was this school waiting for? Truly, mind boggling that people have been manually inputting data for years. I've only been in the position for 5 months and kicking myself it took me as long as it did.

I has to say, amazing job with the site - this is exactly what WRE needed! so much more useful than the official site - i'm wondering if we could just move the newsletters and important dates over here, so i don't need 2 bookmarks :)
Anyways - huge thanks for putting this together - very impressive!

We have been using for several years. In fact, we tried another online system for a year, but came back to The system is logical and easy to use for administrators, and parents. I love the tutorials, and don't usually need help, but when I do, I always get my problem solved fast. is also a convenient place to comply with PAC regulations, and keep copies of your meeting minutes and agendas. These documents can be easily read by your school community.
