Summer 2022 is winding down and things are getting busy, as it’s time to go back to school. Check out your local Strack & Van Til Food Market and check off some delicious items from your to-do list.

Visit the Strack & Van Til Deli Department for tasty lunch selections — to pack for the kids and you — such as quick and easy Grab and Go lunchmeats and cheeses or those sliced at the deli counter to your liking.

“We have a wide variety of specialty meats and cheeses to add a little fun to lunch, or choose traditional favorites like ham and Swiss, turkey and Colby Jack or bologna and American cheese,” says Deli Director Kristin Snow. “We’ll even slice your deli meat regular thickness, thin or shaved, so you’ll always enjoy your perfect sandwich.”

Some of the options that can make the midday meal more special include spicy pineapple ham, Cubano smoked ham, cherry-wood smoked ham, herb and garlic chicken breast or Cajun turkey. They’re especially appetizing atop King’s Hawaiian sandwich breads or enveloped in an assortment of pita bread or wraps. The Strack & Van Til Deli even offers Atoria’s brand cauliflower coconut wraps for those watching their carbs.

Busy helping with homework and no time to make lunch? Strack & Van Till offers pre-made sandwiches.

“Try our Deli Department kids’ boxed lunches that feature two King’s Hawaiian mini sandwiches made with ham or turkey, a bag of individual chips with a dessert snack and a juice box in a clever lunch box for only $4.49,” notes Snow. “Many adults also love this no-hassle and all-inclusive lunch.”

Want something different? Pick up a $6 store-made sub on freshly delivered Turano rolls in Italian, ham or turkey varieties. Half subs are only $3.50. Easy-to-eat wraps are available in Buffalo chicken, chicken Caesar, Italian or turkey club options. Complete your sandwich with snacking cheeses by Mini BabyBel and Laughing Cow or BelGioioso artisan cheeses. There are also deli string cheeses, cheese curds and cheese crisps. Add a Van Holten’s Pickle or Oh Snap! Pickles, carrots, cool beans or pickled peas, and these meals really make the grade.

Be sure the kids start the day with a hearty breakfast. Strack & Van Til Sales Manager Mike Nisevich says to check the aisles for ready-to-eat breakfast and healthy snack options, plus quick heat-and-eat meal solutions. “We do our homework to make going back to class easier for our customers.”

Best of all, you can complete many back-to-school tasks under one roof, including picking up school supplies, at your local Strack & Van Til store.

“This week, we have specials on notebooks, folders, markers and colored pencils,” says Strack & Van Til Center Store Sales Manager Darren Kinach. “We’ve got you covered for school essentials.”
