My Hot Lunchbox

Successfully bringing hot lunches to U.S. schools nationwide


My Hot Lunchbox wanted to create the most complete, user-friendly and budget-effective system for US schools wishing to offer a daily hot lunch option.

The system needed to connects parents, schools and local restaurants (stores), be fast and very easy-to-use.

The lunch menus are created by approved local restaurants with meal options carefully selected by staff nutritionist. The parents are enabled to choose, manage, order and prepay lunches for their children's.

All ordered lunches are individually packed and delivered to school or camp.
