MVPS Beach Bites Canteen

Beach Bites Canteen is owned and operated by the MVPS P&C as a service to the families of Manly Village Public School. Canteen Manager Lori and Diane aim to provide fresh, healthy and affordable food on a daily basis to all Manly Village children.

The canteen provides a unique opportunity for children to interact with different adults, use money and also practise patience and use their beautiful manners during transactions. The canteen prides itself on providing support to all children every day.  If your child has a food allergy or food intolerance please call Lori to discuss options on (02) 9977 2478

Ordering and payment

Food can be ordered online through Flexischools, the Flexischools iphone app, the Flexischools Google Play app; or directly over the counter at the canteen. If you miss the 9:15am cut off for lunch orders, there is a limited late menu option on Flexischools. To pay any outstanding canteen debts, use the Flexischools IOU option.

If you wish to provide your child with spending money for the canteen, $2-$3 is plenty to buy a yummy recess treat and something frozen at afternoon break.

Birthday ice blocks

The canteen will make sure there are enough for your child’s class. Also, the canteen does not store food or frozen food items from outside.

Volunteering in the canteen

The children LOVE to see mum and dad in the canteen - they get very excited, feel very proud and it makes them feel part of the school community.  Talk to Lori about helping!
