Ruffing is pleased to announce that our hot lunch program is now being serviced full-time by Gentile’s Bakery and Deli!

Remember, all orders must be in by the 24th of the preceding month.  Late orders cause confusion and complications and cannot be accepted.

Gentile’s Bakery is owned and operated by Ruffing’s Bolzan family. They will be offering high quality meals such as: rigatoni, meatballs and marinara sauce, homemade French toast, and baked drumsticks to name a few. Gentile’s offers gluten free options with some of their meals. If the item is a gluten free option it will be noted.

Each Friday, you may pre-order (using the Ruffing Hot Lunch system) cheese pizza by the slice. You may order as many slices as you would like for your child. The slice will be from a 16 inch pizza cut into 10 slices. Napkins and paper plates will be provided. Your child is welcome to bring in sides from home. Each slice of pizza is $1.50.

The Hot Lunch program needs incredible parent volunteers, just like you! One day a week (or you can fill in as needed), you arrive at Ruffing around 11:30 a.m., count, sort and deliver lunches to the classrooms. It takes less than 30 minutes from start to finish!  If you are interested in learning more about volunteering for the Hot Lunch Program, please contact Meredith Farrow at or (440) 670-2112.
