Volunteer for Lunch Support


Do you have 30 – 60 minutes you can spare 1 – 5 days per week?

How about spending it in the school cafeteria! New this year, school lunch is provided at no charge for all students.  We are expecting a significant increase in the number of students having school lunch. Despite ongoing efforts to recruit, hire, and maintain sufficient staffing, California is experiencing a labor shortage, and we are asking for help to ensure students have the best dining experience possible. 


Volunteer work will involve greeting students in the lunch line, ensuring smooth flow of service lines, helping students select packaged food items, and counting students. NO KITCHEN WORK or lifting will be assigned. 


Step 1.

To volunteer, parents must complete the quick and easy Be A Mentor Online Application for Level 1 volunteers. There is no charge and the process takes about 48 hours to be approved. You will receive a confirmation email once your application has been approved. 

Here is the link to the online application:
