FUN LUNCH

Fun Lunch is the PTOs largest fundraiser, and is beloved by the entire Richards Community. Richards loves Fun Lunch! We can’t let this program disappear, we need your help to keep it going during the 2019-2020 school year. Can you help?

Volunteer Requirements and Responsibilities:

  • Flexible day time hours, especially on Fridays. Please plan on being at school from 10am to 1pm on Fun Lunch Fridays. There are 15 Fun Lunch dates scheduled during the 2019-2020 school year.

  • Working knowledge of Excel: the Fun Lunch order forms are going entirely online this year, which means a lot less data entry, however, Fun Lunch volunteers should be familiar with Excel and able to read through a spreadsheet to look up order information.

Other Job Responsibilities Include:

  • Correspondence with parents, school staff, and CPK to confirm lunch orders and delivery times. This can require multiple follow-up emails to track down missing orders, etc.

  • Reminding the PTO Communications team to post information about Fun Lunch order deadlines, lunch dates, etc.

  • Volunteer Coordination and Costco Runs: the Fun Lunch entrees are delivered by CPK, but the sides (apple sauce, Oreos/Rice Krispie treats, and water) all come from Costco. There is a specific pool of volunteers for both Costco and day of Fun Lunch help.

  • Fun Lunch Committee Chairs will be responsible for working with both volunteers to coordinate Costco runs and day of Fun Lunch help. The PTO Communications Team will assist in volunteer recruitment.

There’s no way around it- Fun Lunch is a big job, it’s a lot of work. The benefits of the program are so important to both the continued financial success of the Richards PTO and the Richards Community. The kids love it, the staff love it, and parents love it. Please consider signing up to help. If you have any questions, email richardsptowfb@gmail.com. We would be happy to talk to you.
