Glorietta's very own hot lunch program is run by our dedicated parent volunteers. Always Fresh, Always Nutritious and Always Delicious!
Gopher Gourmet is open five days a week for lunch and provides our students with healthy, nutritious and delicious food choices at reasonable prices. All profits from this parent-run, volunteered-staffed operation go to the GPC to fund many services that support the ongoing maintenance of our campus, classroom supplies and safety of our students, as well as our P.E. programs, classroom assistants and other curriculum enhancements.
The 2014-15 Gopher Gourmet Team includes:
|Chairs:||Lisa Karp and Amy Campbell|
|Email Notifications:||Catherine Carysforth|
Gopher Gourmet Menu
A typical Gopher Gourmet daily menu includes several choices for pre-ordered hot entrées, including options that are vegetarian and gluten-free, a beverage, and the very popular Variety Bar. Our Variety Bar is stocked with enough healthy and varied items to create a well-balanced meal, like fresh green salads, an array of fruits and vegetables, condiments, dairy options, protein sources and whole grain options. Students can select either meals including both the hot entrées and the Variety Bar or select the Variety Bar alone.
The variety bar will feature a special hot protein item, such as mini corn dogs, meatballs, fish sticks or mini chicken tacos, that will only be available to those students who order "Variety Bar Only". Students who order the entrée option will continue to have access to the variety bar but will not receive the special hot item of the day.
Gopher Gourmet for Kindergarteners
Kindergarteners who would like to stay for lunch (whether they bring their own or enjoy the Gopher Gourmet selections) will be checked into Gopher Club at school dismissal and will then be escorted to the lunchroom at 12:20 by the Gopher Club staff. All of the Gopher Club meal selections are available to kindergarten students

Reminder for Volunteers:
When it's your turn to volunteer, please remember to arrive in the kitchen on time ready to work by 10:15am
and plan to stay for the entire shift, until 1:45pm. Not completing a full shift puts an extra burden on your
team and the rest of the kitchen staff. It also increases our operating expenses because we have to
pay our kitchen manager to work longer shifts. This means less money for our kids and the GPC.
If you cannot make your shift it is your responsibility to find a sub. You need to ask someone to cover for you or swap your shift with another volunteer. The schedule of volunteers is attached below.
Please email Amy Campbell if you would like to volunteer.
Because Gopher Gourmet is a dynamic and evolving program, we encourage your input and feedback.
Please call or email Lisa Karp or Amy Campbell Brown with your questions, comments and
ideas for how to continue to build upon the success of Gopher Gourmet.
