Volunteers Are Essential
We need your help to make this work.  We offer lunch credits to volunteers: when you complete a lunch volunteer shift, you earn one free lunch for your child! This is also a great way to stay connected with your teenager and share their experience in middle school.  You can sign up to volunteer once a week, twice per month or once per month. Lunch shifts are Monday – Friday, 11:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.

Food Provider is The LunchMaster
The food provider for Hillview hot lunch is The LunchMaster.  They are a web-based food supplier that allows parents to order lunch online for as many days as they choose, and for multiple schools.  Meals are delivered to Hillview’s kitchen, and a team of parent volunteers sets up and serves the food to students. The LunchMaster offers up to 16 healthy choices a day including vegetarian, gluten-free and organic options.  The LunchMaster’s meals typically feature a freshly prepared entrée, fruit, vegetable, healthy snack, and a choice of cold beverages.
