The Kids Kitchen


Hello from the Kids’ Kitchen at Farrer Primary School

Our canteen is open 3 days per week, (Wednesday, Thursday & Friday) from 8:30 am – 3:00pm for the delivery of online lunch orders and to provide counter service at both lunch and recess.

Our Year 6 Hospitality Team students assist in the canteen at lunch and recess by serving their fellow students. This gives them the chance to build skills in customer service, food handling and hygiene, maths, communication, teamwork and the all-important cleaning up!

Our Menu

Nourishing our children's health by providing healthy canteen food and drinks is a priority for our school community. The Kids Kitchen offers a delicious and healthy menu. Many foods on our menu are made from fresh ingredients and where possible, we use the produce grown in our Environment Centre garden.

The Kids' Kitchen follows the Nutrition Australia, National Healthy School Canteen Guidelines. Our menu adheres to the "traffic light" system, which is used to categorise food based on Australian Dietary Guidelines. We offer only GREEN and AMBER items on our menu.

If your child has special dietary requirements, food allergies or food sensitivities please contact us, we will do our best to meet their needs. To help reduce food waste we limit the amount of hot food we sell over the counter.

Counter service is predominantly for snacks and drinks. We add special seasonal items to our menu each term. We also run a special meal deal each term.

Keep an eye out for canteen news, specials and updates in the school newsletter and on the School and Farrer P&C social media platforms.

Helping in our canteen

Our Canteen Manager is employed by the Farrer School Community Association (FSCA). The viability of the school canteen relies on parents volunteering their time to assist the Canteen Manager. To produce fresh nutritious food at a reasonable price for the students, volunteers are essential. You can volunteer for half an hour or half a day: you are always welcome and appreciated. Oh, and the kids love seeing their mum or dad behind the counter! No experience or qualifications are necessary, just a willingness to help If you’re interested in helping contact us via email or pop in and say hi!

Canteen Committee

The operations of the canteen are managed by a member of the Farrer P&C Association and a sub-committee made up of parent volunteers. The sub-committee meets once each term.
