Lunch Lady, the popular magazine for parents and carers have concluded their print journey with current issue 30. Announced in March of this year, Lunch Lady posted on Instagram that the thirtieth would be their last. “In case you haven’t heard … Our awesome book series will finish with THIS issue! Issue 30! 30 issues, can you believe it?” Their 30th issue sees the full collection complete with a rainbow palette (as seen on their website and Instagram), but fans have noted their disappointment with the departure from print. Instagram fans such as ‘shelovesespresso’ wrote, “Honestly, the parent in me is heartbroken,” with other fans such as ‘kate_kitty’ who wrote, “oh no! We love the mag,” on the post.
Lunch Lady has made a mark on the independent magazine scene having talked directly to and with parents and carers with their fun, creative voice and colourful content. Sharing everything from craft projects to recipes, the quarterly magazine is known for its packed creative content and vibrant covers. The team behind Lunch Lady – Lou Bannister and Lara Burke, continue to run other successful publications such as Frankie, SPACES and Smith Journal. Headquartered in Bundjalung Country, Australia, Lou and Lara are looking to continue with Lunch Lady’s highly successful digital parenting platform across the blog, podcast and many other projects. Overleaf wishes them the very best with current and future endeavours.
