Lunch & Popcorn Program Coordinator

The St. Gemma Catholic School Council (CSC) is looking for a responsible and caring individual (or two) to run the Lunch & Popcorn Program for the 2019-20 school year. This program provides meals (currently a rotation of pita sandwiches, pizza, and hotdogs) and popcorn snacks once a week (generally on Fridays, or Thursdays if there’s a PD Day) to over 250 students and staff.  It is a VITAL source of revenue for the CSC, supporting extra-curricular activities for students and a variety of community-building events.

Thank you in advance!
