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, the Snack Shack strives to mainly offer foods that fall in the green or amber categories.
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 winter menu.
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.
