ISLA Lunch Program 2022 is requesting Volunteers!

Did you know that Volunteers are critical to ISLA's lunch program? Working alongside Jorge Gomez (ISLA's lunch manager), ISLA lunch volunteers prep for lunch, greet the kids, serve the food, and clean up. This is a fun opportunity to help out and see the kids during the school day. Due to the activities involved, bringing siblings along for this volunteer role is not allowed. As a reminder all volunteers must follow ISLA's Vaccination Policy.

ISLA is seeking 3 volunteers for each day, 10:45am-1:15pm. If you are interested in volunteering, please sign up here:
