School lunch business taking off in Whitehorse
A mother-daughter duo in Whitehorse is building up a business by taking care of a task some parents grow to hate: making their kids' school lunches.
Echo Johnson and her mom Lynda Peters own It's Lunch Time, offering what they're calling guilt-free convenience for parents.
Tuesdays through Fridays they deliver lunches to schools around Whitehorse, a different school each day. Kids and their parents can pick what they want from a list of available foods.
Johnson says a favourite combo is chicken caesar salad and a small pizza. That runs about $9.
The business makes about 200 lunches each week and sees room for growth.
