Welcome to Glorietta’s lunch program, Gopher Gourmet!

Gopher Gourmet provides healthy, delicious, and low-cost food choices for our students and teachers five days a week!

Gopher Gourmet Volunteer Opportunities 

Gopher Gourmet depends heavily on parent volunteers to sustain and improve our program. Our volunteer positions provide a fun opportunity to see your kids at lunch, meet new members of the Glorietta community, and give back to the school! No food handling experience needed. We are actively seeking volunteers to fill a variety of positions:

  • Kitchen Volunteers work in teams of 3 from approximately 11:00-1:30pm. During this time volunteers team up to prep food, serve lunch, hang out with the students, and help clean up after service is over. Each volunteer comes into the kitchen between 4 and 6 times a year, about once every 6 weeks, for approximately 2.5 hours. 
    • If you are interested in working in the kitchen but cannot commit to the 4-6 shifts listed above the Gopher Gourmet team is also looking for parents and family members that are able to “substitute” or fill in for absent volunteers on a as needed basis. If you are interested in being put on a substitute list, you will be contacted when the regularly scheduled volunteers are not available. 
  • Produce pick up volunteers pick up food from Whole Foods Lafayette on Wednesday mornings and deliver it to school by 1:30 or pick up bagels from Noah’s Lafayette on Mondays and deliver them to school by 10am. 
  • Laundry volunteers pick up the dirty laundry outside the kitchen on Friday’s, launder it, fold it, and return it to the kitchen by 9am Monday morning.

Please click HERE to sign up now! We can’t wait to see new parents in the kitchen in the coming year!
