Saint Raphael Elementary School Cafeteria

Saint Raphael Elementary School has a dedicated cafeteria space where students can purchase breakfast and either bring lunch or purchase a school lunch.

No Nuts Please!
As a reminder, we are a Nut Restricted school! Our kitchen and the food we serve is nut free. The cafeteria itself is nut safe meaning that all reasonable precautions are taken so that peanuts and tree nuts are not in direct contact with those who are allergic. We provide a separate, designated area in the cafeteria for those students bringing a nut-based lunch or snack in their lunchbox.


Breakfast is served on school mornings from 7:15am - 7:30am for $1.50 per student. Students who qualify for free or reduced lunches automatically qualify for free/reduced breakfast. Reduced price breakfast price is $.30 per day. We also offer an a La Carte breakfast menu.

Please contact our Cafeteria Breakfast Manager, Mrs. Zottola, with any questions.


Students can either bring lunch or purchase a school lunch; those bringing lunch can purchase an 8oz. milk or water for $.60 and a la carte items separately. Student lunches are $3.00/meal or $.40 for a reduced price lunch. All lunches include a meal, drink, side, vegetable and/or fruit.

Please contact our Cafeteria Lunch Manager, Erin Paszkowski, with any questions.

Lunch Money - Quik Lunch

The SRES Cafeteria uses a Point of Sale System called Quik Lunch for all cafeteria purchases. This program is designed to make the cafeteria process simple and easy and eliminate children bringing money or lunch tickets to school. The system works like a debit card. Payments (cash or check) will be automatically deposited into your child's account via the school office.

How it Works

  1. Parents send lunch payments via cash or check to our School Secretary, Mrs. Cindy Goetz, in the school office and she will deposit the money into their child's account.
  2. As long as your child has money in their account, they can make cafeteria purchases for breakfast and/or lunch using a designated PIN number (if a child forgets their PIN, the cashier will be able to look it up for them).
  3. When a child has a balance of $2 or less in their account, parents will receive a Low Balance Letter.

Please contact our School Secretary, Mrs. Cindy Goetz, with any questions.
