Online Canteen Orders

Rory’s School Lunches provides an online canteen ordering system for the convenience of schools, parents and students.


Once your school is registered for online ordering:

  • orders can be placed in advance, any time, until 9:15am on the day the lunch is required.
  • students don’t need to bring cash to school to pay for their lunch order.
  • parents can also discuss food choices with their children, which is particularly helpful for younger students.

What do online lunch orders cost?

There is no additional cost to schools or parents to order your lunch online.

Why add my child’s photo in to the app?

For ease of navigation, Qkr! gives you the option to add your child’s photo to the app. Rest assured that this feature is optional, and designed to save you time when placing Qkr! orders.

If you choose to add your child’s photo, it will display at the top of the screen when you are browsing school products on Qkr!, and on the calendar when you are making food orders. This feature is particularly useful if you wish to place food orders for multiple children at the same school as you can simply tap the photo of the child for whom you wish to order and add items to cart. To move between children, tap on the next child’s photo and repeat the process. This saves you time and hassle by allowing you to place food orders for all your children with one single transaction. There is no need to use the back button or place separate orders for each child.

What is the canteen’s cut-off time and how is it determined?

Your school canteen has a nominated cut off time for all Qkr! food orders to provide the kitchen staff sufficient time to prepare the food orders.  The school does not allow Qkr! orders to be placed after the cut off time.

How can I be sure my child will get his or her food order?

Qkr! is the safe, secure and reliable way to pay for school food orders. Your eReceipt doubles as confirmation of your order and provides peace of mind that the order has been received and is being processed by the canteen.

Every day canteen staff print a tally sheet listing all Qkr! orders for that day. They also print unique identification stickers for each Qkr! order containing the child’s name, class and food order details. As student lunches are prepared, they are checked off the tally sheet and placed in individual bags labelled with stickers for ease of identification.
