School Meal Program

“We believe a good lunch provides students with the nutritional energy
to excel at learning”

Ruth King is one of the lucky schools to receive a Brown Bag Lunch Program delivered to our school every day.  This program is sponsored/subsidized in part by the Community LINK Program and the Sooke School Board.

This year the brown bag lunch program is $80.00 per month per child.  Families who use the program because it is easier than making lunch at home are asked to pay the full amount requested each month per child.  All other families are asked to contribute their fair share based on their need.

Suggested amounts if you are unable to pay in full:

  • $40.00 with a subsidy of 50%
  • $20.00 with a subsidy of 75%
  • $16.00 with a subsidy of 80%
  • $8.00 with a subsidy of 90%
  • If you are unable to contribute, your child/children are still welcome to register for the program.


No child should go hungry at lunch and each family should support the program with whatever amount is possible.
