Wanted: One Lunch Volunteers
contact Karen Treon at  ktreon@gmail.com
We have some unfilled One Lunch shifts this semester and would love your help!  You can sign up for just one shift or for a few.  Don't worry if you have never volunteered for One Lunch before - we will make sure someone shows you the ropes. On days when we are short volunteers, the cafeteria staff has to reduce the number of food service locations - affecting hungry students and teachers!  The weather is beautiful, the work is fun, and your help is needed.  If you can help out - even for just one shift - please contact Karen Treon at  ktreon@gmail.com .
