Dinnertime or Lunchtime

Which is correct Dinnertime or Lunchtime. Kids take their dinner money to school but use a lunch box for sandwiches. There is a TV programme called dinnerladies but none called lunchladies. You join the dinner queue not the lunch queue. You use the term Dog\'s dinner - not dogs lunch. Which is correct
