The Lunch Box


August 2019

Dear Mother Seton Parents/Guardians,

Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year and to The Lunchbox by Fontana! It is withgreat joy that I have the opportunity to carry on my family’s tradition of Fontana's Catering at Mother Seton Academy.

I'm very excited to introduce myself to you. My Name is Elia Landino and I was born into Fontana's Restaurant and Pizzeria in Bayonne, NJ. I spent thirty (30) years of my life actively involved in the family's restaurant and catering business. At a young age, I learned about the food and service industries including the ins and outs of food handling, preparation, and nutrition. In addition to my time in the family business, I bring to your children seven (7) years of experience working in the Monmouth/ Ocean County school cafeterias.

I have been working with the team at Mother Seton Academy to update the kitchen equipment and space as well as bring in home cooked, healthy food options for the children.

The Lunchbox meal will include a hot entrée, side dish, fruit, and beverage. Each lunch will cost $4.00. There will also be daily lunch specials available.

Additional snacks will be available for purchase. Snacks can include chips, cookies, funnel cakes, soft pretzels, snapple, Gatorade, and water. Snack prices vary from . 50 to $2.00. The Lunchbox menu will be listed monthly on the Mother Seton Academy web site as well as on Facebook.

For your convenience, you may pre-pay for ten (10) lunches by purchasing a lunch card for $40.00. Kindly send in a check payable to: “The Lunchbox” and return it to the main office where I will have a box in the mailroom.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call me at (201) 725-2072. Thank

you and God Bless our Community.
