School Lunches

Flik Independent Dining
 

Carrollwood Day School partners with Flik Independent School Dining to provide lunch service for students at both the Early Childhood Campus and the Bearss Avenue campus!

Flik is the market leader in independent school dining, currently serving over 248 prestigious private and independent schools. Their mantra is Nourishing A Brighter Future. Flik starts with fresh, whole ingredients and prepares their menu items from scratch. School menus, which will feature local and sustainable items, will be created at our campus, specifically designed for our school community.

How to set up a declining balance account for MS and US students

  • Flik uses a no-cash system. Elementary, Middle School, and Upper School parents can set up and fund a payment account for each child at MySchoolBucks.com for daily purchases made through the cafeteria line. (ECC and elementary lunches ordered on Nutrislice must be paid for by credit card.) To create accounts, parents must enter their child's name and birthdate. Accounts can be funded three ways:
    • Make a one-time payment
    • Set up autopay
    • Send a check payable to "Flik" to the school office 
    • If a student's account becomes overdrawn, the student will be served a Sunbutter and jelly sandwich for $3.50 which will be deducted from the student's account balance. We recommend that parents set up auto pay on their MySchoolBucks.com account to ensure their children get to have the lunch of their choice.

Meet CDS's Chef Manager Robin Frechette

Robin Flik

Robin started as a young child with a love of food. Not only to eat it, of course, but to create. She knew at a very young age that she wanted to be in the culinary industry. Robin started, as many culinary professionals do, as a dishwasher and worked her way up. She continued after high school with an associate’s degree in Culinary Arts at the prestigious Johnson and Wales University in Rhode Island.

While at Johnson & Wales, she took her internship at the Doubletree Guest Suites in Boston, Massachusetts. She was quickly promoted to Lead Line Cook and a short time later to Executive Sous Chef. In 2010, Robin began her career with Flik as a Sous Chef at Ropes & Gray Law Firm in Boston. A relocation opportunity for her husband brings their family Tampa. She is excited to continue her career with Flik by providing healthy and delicious meals to the Carrollwood Day School community.
