ROMS LUNCH PROGRAM - Call for Baked Goods!!
The ROMS lunch program supports 20 registered students every day who need a little extra nutritional support. As a way to add something fun to the nutritious food that is already provided, we are asking you to contribute baked goods on one or more days throughout the rest of the year.
You don't even have to bake! Store-bought baked goods are welcome as well as homemade. We ask for either 2-3 dozen cookies or muffins, OR 1-2 loaves (ex. banana bread) to be dropped off at the school in the morning on the day you sign up for. Feel free to contact Elisa Greenway, who is the volunteer in charge of the program: Elisa.firstname.lastname@example.org
