At Mount Carmel College we take great pride in offering a healthy, fresh and varied range of meal and snack options.
View our Winter Canteen Menu here.
Canteen Manager, Tania Saville, is very mindful of the cost to families, so prices are kept as low as possible. Tania is assisted by a group of volunteer parents. If you are interested in volunteering, please complete the Canteen Volunteers Form.
Fresh, local ingredients are used whenever possible, with salad wraps and rolls made fresh to order. Salads and home-made meals such as pasta, macaroni & cheese and fried rice are available everyday. In Terms 1 and 4, sushi and fresh fruit salad are available, while in Terms 2 and 3 home made soup and curries are offered.
Although food brought from home cannot be heated due to Hobart City Council health regulations, Tania and her team are happy to toast home-brought sandwiches for 50c.
The Canteen is open every day until 1.30pm.
How to order
To assist parents, the College uses an online ordering system called Qkr by Mastercard (pronounced ‘quicker’). Lunches can be ordered and paid for via the Qkr app which also allows for lunches to be pre-ordered days, even weeks, ahead.
All orders must be placed prior to 9.15am daily with orders placed after this time not being accepted by the system.
Qkr by MasterCard can be downloaded free from Apple’s App store for iPhones (for iPads download the iPhone app) or from Google Play for Android phones and tablets. After downloading the app and registering, simply select Mount Carmel College from ‘Nearby Locations’ on Qkr or type mount carmel after tapping the magnifying glass in the top right of the Home screen of Qkr. If you have any queries regarding the service please contact the College Office and we will be happy to assist.
The old system of brown paper bags is still available for those who do not have access to the App via a SmartPhone or hand held device. Orders should be clearly written, preferably in ink, including name and grade, with correct money enclosed. Filling requests for sandwiches, ciabattas, wraps and rolls need to be written on the bag (e.g. ham, lettuce and tomato). Home-brought sandwiches for toasting need to be placed in paper bags provided, clearly labelled and including the 50c toasting fee.Primary (K-6)
Brown paper lunch bags are provided in all classrooms. Students put their completed lunch orders in the clear plastic lunch box located in each classroom.Secondary (7-10)
Our free brown paper lunch bags can be taken from the hook on the canteen door. The menu is on the door of the canteen and a posting slot for completed orders. Orders must be submitted at the start of the day before Clan commences at 8.40am.
As a number of our children have serious nut allergies, it is essential that no nuts are brought to school in any form (including nut-based ingredients in sandwiches, such as pesto).
Special dietary needs
For those students with a medically-diagnosed dietary requirement (such as an allergy to eggs or gluten intolerance), parents are requested to email Tania or telephone her on 6216 7909 to discuss options.
