The Forbes Public School Canteen, 'The Tuckerbox' is a P & C operated canteen, overseen by our paid manager, Mrs Tammy Coady and supported by volunteers. The Tuckerbox has been a Great Healthy School Canteen since 2019 and is a member of the healthy School Canten association. 

Canteen Open Days

The canteen is open for both recess and lunch Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 9:00am to 2:00pm.

Lunch Orders

Orders can be placed via the Flexischools App or online via the Flexischools website: Orders must be placed online by 9:00am and will be delivered to your child's classroom in the lunch baskets. 

Alternatively, you can use a paper bag or reusable lunch wallet for ordering. These are to be placed in the lunch basket in your child's classroom at the commencement of the day. Please ensure your child's lunch order is clearly labelled with their name and class. 


As with all volunteer organisations, our success is dependent upon the goodwill of the volunteers. We would like to invite you to join our team. Our volunteers have different levels of commitment. Some volunteer on a weekly basis while others once per term. Any time you are able to give us is very much apprectiated. A Working with Children Check is required. If you are able to help in any way please contact the school office on 6852 1934 or email Tammy directly at
