Snack ShackUpdated Wednesday October 23, 2019 by Jennifer Gallacher.
The Snack Shack at Green Acres Elementary School is a critical part of LOLL, providing a vital source of revenue to help offset operating expenses, such as field maintenance and equipment, the goal is always to have coverage, so the Snack Shack remains open for business for all scheduled games.
Every family participating in LOLL will be volunteering time in the snack shack, but we are here to help make your volunteer time enjoyable! It is the League’s goal to limit Snack Shack volunteer requirements to 2-3 shifts per player, so everyone’s help will be needed.
Working in the Snack Shack is a great way for parents to meet each other. However, trusted family friends and relatives can volunteer for shifts in parent's place to fulfill the family’s volunteer obligation. Teenagers, 13 and older can also assist while there is an adult working. Unfortunately, due to safety and insurance regulations, children under 13 cannot accompany parents during snack shack shifts.
We recommend learning more about how the Snack Shack works by reviewing our procedure binder before your shift. A hard copy is also available in the shack.
We're using a live Google Sheet to allow team parents, coaches or individual parents to fill-in shifts.
All families are welcome to start tabs at the Snack Shack, although they must remain in the positive. You can pay in advance, then allow your child to order off the tab which we track in the snack shack. Tabs will begin at opening day and end closing day (they do not roll over year to year).
We recognize that families rely on the snack shack for meals throughout the season. If you have ideas of food choices you’d like us to stock, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. We do our best to meet the needs of the community while keeping food purchasing and preparations manageable for our volunteers.
