Gopher Gourmet

Gopher Gourmet is Glorietta’s unique hot lunch program that offers students a healthy and nutritious meal 5 days a week excluding minimum days and holidays. This program is run by the Glorietta Parents Club (GPC) and is staffed by two paid Kitchen Managers and three parent volunteers each day. The meal is comprised of a main lunch item each day such as pasta, pizza, and sushi delivered from local vendors—and is supplemented by our fabulous Variety Bar which is includes fruits, vegetables, and salads. We buy organic when we can source it and our Kitchen Managers make most, if not all of the delicious salads—even using lettuce grown from our own school gardens!

In addition to providing a healthy lunch to our students—Gopher Gourmet also serves as our 3rd largest GPC fundraiser (after the Auction and Gopher Club) and raises about 50K per year that supports Glorietta’s educational programs. 



We can’t provide this wonderful service to our students without your help! So get your calendars out and sign up for your 2016-17 Gopher Gourmet Volunteer Shift. Gopher Gourmet CANNOT run without its valuable volunteers and we need you!

Shifts will run from 11:00am to approximately 1:30pm. We need three volunteers a day to work with our two staffed Kitchen Managers. Your shift will include helping to set up the Variety Bar, serving lunch and washing dishes. Depending on the day of the week you sign up for—you will be given from 4-6 days per year to work in the Glorietta kitchen. And the best part of volunteering in the kitchen? It’s FUN!

Can't commit to a full shift? Here are some other options:

  • Split a shift with a friend—that way each of you will have no more than 3 shifts per school year. New to Glorietta? No problem! Contact Aileen Burgoyne and she will try to pair you with someone.
  • Do some laundry—we need help doing the kitchen laundry which includes aprons and towels every Friday, including minimum days.
  • Do some shopping—we are looking for people to deliver food from Trader Joe's to the kitchen every Monday morning.
  • Be a sub! Volunteer schedules change or conflicts arise and Gopher Gourmet is often looking for people to come in on short notice to help out. Contact Aileen Burgoyne to be put on a sub list.
