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

The 2016-2017 lunch program is run by our kitchen manager and a dedicated team of parent volunteers:

Gopher Gourmet Registration Information and Procedures

Important Dates for Session 3 Registration

Session 3 ordering will OPEN Sunday, March 12th and CLOSE on Sunday, March 19th

Change week will begin Friday, April 14th and end Friday, April 21st

No late order requests will be granted.

Session 3 service will span from April 10th- June 7th.

Please note, Spring Break is from April 1-9 so Session 3 will begin the day after break.

Please note that the operations in the kitchen will not change for session 3.  That means that despite the flexibility offered by the Orderlunches system to order different lunches each week we will NOT be able to serve in this manner.  Thus, you MUST order the same meal each week.  The best way to do this is to select your chosen meal and then click the yellow star button next to each selection; this will mark the meal as a favorite and will order the meal each week from that point forward.

Please choose your student’s lunch carefully and utilize our change week sparingly. Our new system will offer an Orderlunches credit for future orders if you make cancelations during change week.  But, as in the past we are unable to issue refunds for cancelations or changes.

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!
