Because we’re all about making your life easier, we’re busy bees behind the scenes!
We have answers.
Each and every morning, our team hand-delivers each lunch right into your child’s cubby. No cubby? No problem. Lunches are also labelled with your child’s first and last name for easy identification.
We have calendars for each of the schools we serve and will follow them to ensure lunches are only delivered on the days school is in session.
Because we make our food fresh every morning, we are unable to issue refunds for last-minute cancellations. That said, you can either swing by the school to pick it up at lunchtime or leave it to the school to find another child to enjoy the lunch.
We take food safety very seriously, which is why both our lunch boxes and delivery bags are temperature controlled. Our founder is a certified food safety manager, insured and licensed with the state of pennsylvania.
For the 5x/week-monthly plan, you may cancel at any time. We just ask that you let us know by the 15th of the month prior. For the flex plan, cancellations must be made friday by noon for the following week.
As a mama of two munchkins, Kimberly Danley-McNulty knows firsthand the realities that come with a busy family life. Work demands, school commitments, extracurricular activities, make planning nutritious and delicious meals (that kids will actually eat!) a challenge. Plus, the sheer convenience of pre-packaged, preservative- and sugar-laden lunchbox items has made it easier than ever for school day nutrition to fall by the wayside. Fed up with the plethora of overprocessed foods, and the way they impacted her kids’ behavior and focus, she knew there had to be a better way to level up lunches for little ones. So she teamed up with a holistic health counselor to develop lunches packed with ingredients to fuel growing kids’ brains and bodies. And she found a way to make it uber-convenient for parents – by making each lunch fresh, every single morning, and hand-delivering to children’s cubbies.
“There is evidence that what we eat has a direct impact on behavior, learning, and growth. How can we expect our kids to focus and learn without giving them the nutrition they need during the school day? That’s why I decided to be the change I needed and offer this to other busy families.”
In addition to her roles of business owner and mom, Kim is also a Certified Food Safety Manager.
A vegetarian for over 23 years, Kim Daniels serves as Lead Nutritional Advisor for The Pack’d Lunch. Daniels is a Board-Certified Holistic Health Counselor with a master’s degree in child psychology and over 10 years of professional experience in the public school system.
In addition, she has a private Holistic Health Coaching practice where she teaches mindful eating habits. Daniels also leads masterclasses in the US and Canada for larger businesses and NYC’s Department of Education.
“Every day, I see firsthand the effects of unhealthy food on a child’s mood, attention span, and focus. After eating a lunch full of processed foods, many kids are either unbelievably hyper or lethargic, which makes it nearly impossible to learn. This often leads to frustration, mood swings, and a host of other issues. It’s amazing how something so simple, like what we put in our bodies, can make such a world of difference. Our children (and teachers) would benefit tremendously from nutrient-rich lunches!”
