Tech Stack


The mission at Yay Lunch is simple: they make it easy to give your kids healthy lunches they’ll love, everyday. They deliver real food made fresh daily directly to where your kids learn and play. They work with food partners who understand and uphold their mission to make healthier versions of food kids already love. They take care of lunch, so you can take care of your kids, yourself and the million other things on your to-do list.

How have they adapted to COVID-19?

Interestingly, their business is getting a boost from Covid as schools and parents need Covid-safe lunch, individually packaged, and delivered by a dedicated driver directly to school classrooms.


Yay Lunch’s online platform allows parents to order food for their school-aged kids days or weeks ahead and know that it will show up at school lunchtime hot, fresh, and ready for eating. They have an ecommerce site for ordering, portals for their partner restaurants, portals for each school, and are launching a sophisticated route planning and order fulfilment system for their drivers. Mobile apps for parents and drivers launching soon.


The team at Yay Lunch is all remote, but when appropriate they meet up regularly in Charlottesville, VA. They are firmly committed to flexible, creative, remote work!
