Lunch in the Raccoon's Den

The Raccoon's Den, our great hot lunch program (the only onsite cooked lunch in OUSD!), has the extraordinary Chef Basil and his assistant, Rodrigo.  Each day, they create amazing lunch entrees for our kids, but they do need the help of parent volunteers to make it all possible.  


Parents volunteers help with Mealtime processing, assisting the kids with the lunch choices, and answer any questions kids may have.  Your time and help are both necessary and very appreciated! This is a great opportunity to team up with your buddy (two volunteers per shift) and spend a couple hours together. You also receive 2 meal vouchers for working each shift.


No experience is necessary, but you will need to have TB clearance* (see below for details).  

Once you’ve sign up for a date, please do not remove yourself from the calendar. If you are unable to fulfill your schedule, please find someone else to swap or sub and let the office know who the replacement volunteer is.

If you have a last minute emergency or illness and can’t cover your Hot Lunch duty, please contact the office at (925) 258-0016.


Thanks again for volunteering!

Contact our Program Coordinator, Marcela Ruesga 
with any questions.

Health & Safety

All volunteers must sign in and out at the office and wear a visitor's tag while on campus.


All Volunteers with shoulder length hair or longer must have their hair restrained. Suitable hair restraints include: visors, hats, ponytail holders or hairnets.  


All Volunteers must wear closed toed shoes. Please do not wear sandals or high heels in the Racoon’s Den. The floors can become slippery with water and food.


All Volunteers must wash their hands for 20 seconds prior to preparing food and after using the bathroom, sneezing, touching your face or hair, licking your fingers or consuming food. 20 seconds is the equivalent of singing "Happy Birthday" twice.


Please throw away food that falls on the floor, there is no “5-second” rule in the Raccoon's Den.


Gloves are provided for handling food. Any open wounds should be covered with band aids and gloves should be worn.


Lift properly. Remember to bend your knees and keep your back straight.


TB Screening and Testing

The screening is valid for four years. if you have volunteered in prior years, and an update is needed, we will let you know. Look for the notice in your Registration/Teacher's Assignment Package you will receive at Jumpstart.


If Wagner Ranch does not have a copy of your current TB clearance, please provide the current documentation to the office.

Wagner Ranch TB Screening is scheduled for Thur., Sept. 6,  2018, from 7:30am until 9:00am, in the gym.  


The Contra Costa Health Department requires all volunteers in school, including those working in the Raccoon's Den, to show they are free of communicable tuberculosis (TB). TB screening consists of a questionnaire and, potentially, a PPD skin test. It is the responsibility of each volunteer to provide the school with proof of a negative PPD skin test. TB screening results are valid for four years after your TB test. If you have any questions about TB screening, please contact the office or the Orinda Union School District office (925) 254-4901.
