Hot Lunch Coordinator Needed!

St. Pat’s School Council is looking for 1 or 2 people to fill the role of Hot Lunch Coordinator for the 2019-2020 school year. This program takes a lot of planning, coordinating, and volunteers. It is School Council’s main fundraiser and the kids really enjoy these special days, as do the parents not having to make lunches :)

Please consider this volunteer opportunity for next year – persuade a friend to take it on with you!
