Pomptonian Food Service

Paramus elementary schools have partnered with Pomptonian Food Service for school lunches. Pomptonian offers a menu that is healthy, tasty, and visually appealing. The menu features traditional items such as:

  • Grilled chicken Caesar and chef’s salads
  • Fresh, sliced deli sandwiches
  • All natural chicken dippers
  • Fresh fruits and vegetables
  • Fun treats

Pomptonian sources high-quality ingredients and infuses healthy options into kid-appealing meals. Caring food service staff prepare the meals fresh each day right here in Paramus.

Pomptonian allows families to place an order online up until 8:00 a.m. the same day. You can also plan lunches for the entire month.
