Yinghua food service operates under the umbrella of the U.S. School Nutrition Program administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). In September 2020, the USDA announced the extension of its Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) through which all children 18 and under may receive free meals from open food distribution sites in local public schools. Because families have access to meals through the extension of the SFSP, Yinghua will discontinue the cold bundled meal program created in fall 2020 in response to the predicted closing of summer programs.
Check with your home district or download the “Free Meals for Kids” app to find a site near you for meals on your at-home learning days.
If you are unable to access meals through SFSP, or need help finding a site close to home, Helen Hindrawati will assist you. Contact her at email@example.com.

Our school provides a healthy lunch each day. Lunch, provided by a caterer, CKC Good Food, costs $4.10. Ordering is online through Boonli. Yinghua School Lunch Prices:
- Regular Lunch (includes milk) … $4.10
- Extra Pizza on Pizza Days … $2.00/slice (We do not have pizza on Fridays during the pandemic.)
- “Emergency Meal” (when a student forgets to bring lunch) … $5.00 This is a cold meal.
- Carton of Milk (à la carte) … $0.50
- Lactose-Free Carton of Milk (à la carte) … $0.65
- Yinghua families use the online system Boonli to order school lunch, or, during the pandemic, to order cold bundled meals for home.
- We ask all Yinghua families to set up a Boonli account–even if you think you are unlikely ever to place an order. The reason: If your child forgets to bring a lunch from home, and you’re not able to drop one off, and you authorize us to use an “Emergency Meal,” we will use Boonli to process the order. Remember, the Emergency Meal is a cold meal.
- Note, if you set up a Boonli account last year, but never used it, you’ll need to set up a new one when the next school year begins. For those who order during the year, the account carries over to the following year.

Shift Day Procedure
CKC Good Food, our school lunch provider, follows a procedure called “Shift Day” in the event of bad weather and an unexpected no-school day. If bad weather forces the school to be closed on a Monday, Monday’s menu shifts to Tuesday, and Tuesday’s menu shifts to Wednesday. The food from the Wednesday menu will cancelled, and everyone who had placed a Wednesday order will need to bring a home lunch! However, if the day for the cancelled menu is a Pizza Friday (during non-Covid times), there will be no change to the day’s menu or orders. Questions: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We do not use paper menus and lunch order forms. All students and staff at Yinghua must set up an online Boonli lunch ordering account, even if you don’t plan to order school lunches. How to set up your Yinghua Boonli lunch account.
