Families: Help needed for Hot Lunch Program and Milk Program

In order to run the hot lunch and milk programs this year we are in urgent need of more volunteers.

Basic descriptions of the volunteer jobs are provided below. If you did not sign up to be a helper on registration day, and you feel this is something you could help with, please call and give your name to Mrs. Price at the school (250-788-2044) BY FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 29.

Hot lunch Volunteers: (Wednesday)

A) COORDINATORS (4 more needed): Are responsible for a set meal. Bulletin board in kitchen will have the number count for your meal to aid you in buying the groceries needed at Super Valu. You are also responsible for sending a text reminder to your assistants and dessert makers on your hot lunch day. You are also asked to ensure that the kitchen is clean and all hot lunch materials put away. Typically, you would be on a 6-week rotation.

b) ASSISTANTS (8-10 more needed): Are responsible to assist the Coordinator for that meal. Be at the school by 8:30 on the day that you are assigned. Help clean up after the meals have been served. Ideally, you would be on a 4-5 week rotation.

Milk Program Volunteers: (Tuesday/Thursday) (4-6 more needed):

The milk program runs Tuesday/Thursday. The volunteer would need to pick up the pre-ordered milk from A&W Tuesday morning – and deliver to school. The milk is then labeled with the child’s name and put into baskets for each classroom on Tuesday and Thursday morning. Janet Wark is the Coordinator for this program and will be doing the schedule and the ordering. Typically, volunteers have been responsible for 1-2 weeks at a time a few times a year.

Thank you for considering whether you can be a part of these fundraising programs. Last year the hot lunch program raised over $6,000 and the milk program $1,000.
