Lunch Program Volunteers needed for 2016-17
Thank you for another successful year of our BES lunch program!  A big thank-you to our vendors for their continued support: Aardvarks, Spaghetti Factory, Patti's Pantry, Nesters, Subway, The Fairmont Banff Springs and our newest addition, Earls.  The kid's excitement on lunch days is always a joy to watch and be a part of! 
Our fundraising earnings from this program is a huge asset to our school council driven programs like Nature Explorers, Mountain Readers, and Outdoor pursuits (such as swimming and skiing), just to name a few.  We could not run this program without the continued volunteer support from our parents. This program is 100% volunteer run.
In order to offer a lunch program again next year, we do need to fill some open volunteer spots prior to June 30:

  • We are in need of a computer savvy person to manage our MunchaLunch software program.  It requires approximately 2-3 hours of time with each lunch session which is twice a year.

  • We also need someone to pick up the Nesters fruit/vegetable donation each Wednesday, prepare it and deliver it to the school on Thursdays at noon.

  • As always, we need parent volunteers to serve the lunch on Tuesday/Thursdays for about 25mins over the lunch hour (siblings are welcome).

We will provide training for each of these roles.
We feel this fundraising program benefits the kids; yummy lunches, parents; not having to make lunch twice a week, and school council; monies for programs and we REALLY want it to see it continue.  In order for that to happen, we need to fill the above positions.  Any offering of your time is greatly appreciated.
Thank you in advance for your consideration and time.

Sincerely your lunch team,
Rebecca Mottram (
