Lunch Coordinator Volunteer Openings
 
PTA is currently looking for two volunteers to run the CCPS lunch program. These positions are very important, and without these volunteers our amazing lunch program would not be possible. All parents are encouraged to consider, however, due to the level of commitment, the preference would be to have parents who would be available to take this responsibility for several years. The current PTO Lunch Coordinator volunteers have students who will be graduating in the next couple of years and will help run the program with starting this summer and through the next school year as you learn the process and responsibilities.
 
The lunch coordinator position requires:
  • Running weekly food and student reports and sending these to our vendors and volunteers.  We use an online program that makes this easy.  It's just important that you have the time to do this every single weekend.
  • Coordinate with our vendors and determine which food items to provide in our menus and make any necessary changes.
  • Work with our PTO treasurer to make sure all vendors are payed in full and on time.
  • Make schedules for our volunteers, so everyone knows what days they will be handing out lunch.
  • Send out reminder emails at the end of the ordering periods, to make sure parents know the deadline is coming up to place orders.
  • Make any price and item changes to our menus every summer for the upcoming year.
  • When we determine it's time for a new vendor, we work with new vendors to come up with menus and pricing.
  • Every summer we set up the ordering periods for the upcoming year.
  • Every summer we must assign students to the correct grades to ensure their lunches are delivered at the correct times.
  • Answer questions from parents regarding ordering problems, etc.
 
Volunteers are the only way we're able to offer lunch to our CCPS students. If you are available to volunteer your time to assist with this outstanding program, please join us!  Contact Erin at ptolunch@cottonwoodclassical.org if you're interested in the lunch coordinator position or have any questions.
