How to View Menus for the Friends Café
To view menus for the Friends Café, please visit wilmingtonfriends.nutrislice.com or download the Nutrislice app from your app store. On the site and app, you can easily filter menus based on special dietary preferences (vegan, vegetarian and healthy Eat Well offerings), and major allergens and ingredients. In addition, you are able to:
• View ‘Dining News’ and receive notifications on upcoming promotions and special menus
• View full nutritional breakdown on all menu items
• Rate menu items (1-5 stars)
• Translate menus into over 40 languages
• You can even ask Amazon Alexa “What’s for lunch?”

Choices for Lower School Students
Culinart will continue our lunch and beverage for lower school students.  We also plan to continue pizza Wednesdays. More information about contracts and menus will be provided soon. 

For any questions, please contact Chef Rich Purfield at rpurfield@culinartinc.com

All middle and upper school students (and 3rd, 4th and 5th graders) are automatically enrolled in the café register system, and are assigned a unique 4- digit PIN (student ID #) that will be the same until they graduate. Our system is  MyPaymentsPlus which requires parents to load money into student accounts in order for them to be able to make purchases with this PIN.

MyPaymentsPlus provides an easy-to-use, efficient way to make payments quickly and securely anytime. Parents can sign up for low balance alert emails to keep track of their child's account and are able to view the purchases made in the cafeteria online. 

Students can still pay with cash; however, we encourage parents to prepay money into their student’s account to make checkout more efficient.
