  2. You will receive a confirmation email once we have validated your account (typically within 1-2 hours during normal business hours).

* If your school is not yet supported by Chefsitos, please contact us to learn more about future partnership opportunities.

Step 2:
Order Meals


  1. Login into the Chefsitsos Online Ordering System with the credentials you created when you registered your child/ren.

  2. Select your meal options for the month.

  3. Submit your payment information.

  4. The COOS will automatically generate meal labels for your child after processing your payment. To verify that your payment went through, go to the "My Orders" tab and confirm that your order status says "Paid Out."


"Our family loves Chefsitos! Before we started using them, it was a struggle to find healthy lunch food that my 3-year old son would eat.  Chefsitos makes our busy life so much easier. My son loves the meals and we love that he is getting a variety of delicious and nutritious food in his lunches, at a very affordable cost! Bonus is that our son loves being able to pick out each meal himself!"

  1. You can make selections and payments multiple months in advance, but you may only place one order per month.
  2. The COOS will notify you once the new monthly menu is ready. 
  3. If you want your child served on the 1st of the month, please place your order at least 3 days before the beginning of that month. After the beginning of a new month, you can then place orders within 24 hours from the desired day of service.
  4. If you need to request a special order, please contact us in advance.
  5. You are responsible for keeping your child/ren's information up-to-date in the COOS (e.g., allergies, class name, etc.).
