This series of posts is for those of you on the PTSA and/or Hospitality Committee at your child’s school. Here you will find step-by-step instructions to duplicate the “Interstellar Lunch” for your school. Ready? Let’s go!
I was trying to come up with something new and different for Staff Appreciation Week this year. We’ve done soup, I suppose we could have done salads, but I thought a food truck would be fun! The Chef Lynn Food Truck offers a variety of soups, sandwiches, sliders, salads, and has gluten free options, which is important to me. The staff shuttled out to the food truck for their lunch and thankfully the serious rain held off until after lunch. I heard rave reviews about the meatloaf sliders. (I had the GF vegetarian tacos, which were delicious.)
The Hospitality Committee made desserts and provided beverages for the Interstellar Lunch, which only required a SignUp Genius event to coordinate. Not bad. What did take some work was convincing a food truck to come to our school instead of parking outside an office complex. If you go this route start early. Months early. We thanked and acknowledged the Chef Lynn Food Truck in our weekly school newsletter and on our website. Hopefully our event introduced her to new customers and families at our school.
Interstellar Lunch & Hydrogen Hydroxide printables are available for purchase here.
