Snack Shack

The Eatons Hill State School ‘Snack Shack’ tuckshop is run and funded by the EHSS P&C to serve fresh, homemade and nutritious food to the school community, five days per week.  All profits from the Snack Shack go back to the tuckshop and school through the P&C.  The Snack Shack needs and relies upon our wonderful volunteers for its continuing success.

The Snack Shack is guided by the principles of Smart Choices – Healthy food and Drink Supply Strategy for Queensland Schools.  This Strategy categorizes food and drink into 3 groups: Green -Have plenty, Amber – Choose carefully, and Red – Limit.  As such, all food and drinks on our menus are categorised in this Traffic Light system to help you make informed choices.

The Snack Shack is also a member of Queensland Association of School Tuckshops (QAST) and as such receives a wealth of nutritional information about how to apply good principles of nutrition in school tuckshops.

The Snack Shack aims to provide an affordable food service that encourages our children to choose healthy meal options.  Nearly every item is made fresh using seasonal fresh produce.  Check out our delicious menu for Term 4.

The Snack Shack is operated by a paid Operations Convenor and several Retail Assistants.  This small team is supported by an amazing group of much valued volunteers.  If you would like to get involved, we have a number of ways that you can help.

What happens if my child doesn’t have lunch?

They will be provided with a piece of fruit and a Vegemite, Cheese or Jam Sandwich – their teacher will contact you to notify the child does not have lunch and to obtain permission to provide these items.  No orders will be accepted over the phone.
