Pedestal Foods is the food service provider for Chaminade College Prep. We provide breakfast and lunch in Café Moe for the students, faculty, staff and any parents who would like to join us from time to time.
We take the responsibility of feeding your son to heart. We understand the connection between good nutrition and good performance – academically and athletically. So you should know Pedestal Foods makes healthy food that tastes great. Whole foods cooked authentically from scratch, starting from a simple list of unprocessed ingredients.
We know that good eating habits are a learned behavior, so we do our best to help our students understand their choices. We make it fun to explore and learn about cultural cuisines by enthusiastically introducing new menu items with presentations about where the food comes from, how it is grown and how it fuels your body. Not all children like to try new foods, but when consistently given the opportunity, you may be surprised by how their tastes can grow with the choices they are offered. We do our part to ensure your student is given the opportunity to learn healthy behaviors that will shape their relationship with food for the rest of their lives.
We are here to serve you by offering a nourishing meal that supports your son's growth and development. To us, that’s priceless. And yet it doesn’t come without a price. Many things impact the cost of a program in our world, such as increase in food prices, new industry regulations or the number of families who participate in our program. We can’t always control these things, but we can promise you this: our quality and service will never waiver.
Our breakfast and lunch menus are posted online on the left side of this page under Menus. Parents and students can view their food service account by logging onto Skyward to see specific items purchased each day and meal account balances.
Each student is assigned a PIN that will activate their meal account at the registers. The computer screen will display their photo, name and account balance. Items being purchased will be rung up and the amount automatically deducted from their account. Students are urged not to allow other students to use their account or reveal their PIN to anyone. Students will not be allowed to accrue a negative balance in their meal account.
Parents may reload the meal accounts online via Skyward Family Access and RevTrak or pay with cash or checks (made out to Chaminade) which will be accepted at the registers in Café Moe when placed in a properly filled out deposit envelope. Please remind your son to put his name on the deposit envelope.
Breakfast is served 6:50 AM until 7:30 AM on normal schedule school days. On LATE START days, breakfast is served 7:30 AM until 8:45 AM. Lunch is served 11:50 AM until 1:35 PM (Middle School: 11:50 AM - 12:15 PM; 9th and 10th grades: 12:30 - 12:55 PM; 11th and 12th grades: 1:10 - 1:35 PM) unless there is a special schedule. The Snack Shack – located in the northeast corner of Café Moe – serves cold drinks, candy and cheese nachos for purchase and is open after school from ‘after prayer’ until 3:30 PM.
Please contact Jon Friganza with any concerns or questions. Email Jon at JFriganza@chaminade-stl.org or call 314-692-6643. We look forward to the opportunity to feed your son. It's an honor and a responsibility we do not take lightly.
