All canteens in NSW public schools must meet certain requirements. These include providing more healthy food and drink options – to make the healthy choice an easy choice for students. Visit Healthy school canteens to learn more.


Welcome back to all our students and staff!
The Canteen continues to operate with all orders being lunch orders only, and via Munch Monitor. Orders close 9am daily. Due to current COVID-19 restrictions we are unable to offer over-the-counter service. Please be mindful this means students cannot purchase any recess or lunch from the Canteen directly.

We are so fortunate at LCPS to have a Canteen that operates 5 days a week. It opens at 8.30am and closes at 1.30pm and is located behind our Northwood building. 

Students can buy food over the counter at recess and lunch and order lunch for collection at lunch time. Please note that recess food is not ordered, it is only available over the counter. Lunch orders can be made via MunchMonitor or at the Canteen and must be ordered prior to 9am on the day of the order. Only snacks (not lunches) are available for purchase over the counter.

  1. Go to

  2. Username: lcps

  3. Password: munch2066

  4. Click Sign Up to create your own account

You can also download the step by step visual instructions.

We recommend using MunchMonitor because you can:

  • Place lunch orders online 24/7 and up to 4 weeks in advance (except for the weekly specials)
  • List any allergies to alert Canteen staff
  • Obtain reports on your child’s Canteen spending
  • Use your Visa or Mastercard to top up the account (or with cash at the Canteen window)
  • Get a cashless snack card for your child’s over the counter purchases. This allows you to set daily spend limits and ban nominated foods from being purchased over the counter.

To get a cashless snack card:

  1. Login to MunchMonitor
  2. Select student profile (through My Account)
  3. Select the child on the left panel
  4. Click Yes to Allow Snack Money
  5. Select daily or weekly allowance
  6. Insert spend limit
  7. Click Save My Profile
  8. Collect your child’s MunchMonitor keytag from the Canteen before 9am.

You can also add your child’s photo to their Student Profile which helps Canteen volunteers match the keytag to the right owner.

Late lunch order:  if you miss the 9am lunch order deadline please call the Canteen on 9427 1024.

Lost or forgotten lunches: the Canteen will provide a sandwich and piece of fruit if a student has forgotten or lost their lunch and comes to the Canteen with a note from their teacher authorising the Canteen to provide a replacement lunch. All replacement lunches must be paid for. The Canteen will either debit the student’s MunchMonitor account or send a note home stating the lunch provided and the amount owed to the Canteen.

The Canteen is subsidised by LCPS and the teams of volunteers who help everyday enabling us to offer healthy, affordable meals.
