Question: Back to School Luncheon Ideas for Teachers
Each year the PTO does a luncheon for the staff the week before school starts. I'm new to this and am wondering what ideas you all have for luncheon menu ideas.

Hope this helps in some way!

Some of the menu ideas we've had are a "salad bar" - 8 or 9 different salads; BBQ luncheon with pulled pork sandwiches; or a Mexican Fiesta. Our theme for the school year is Commotion in the Ocean - and we're not close enough to the coast to get inexpensive seafood. Other suggestions?

They could choose from salads, appetizers, main dishes, desserts or drinks. I asked anyone that volunteered to bring something in. We had enough food for a week of lunches and the teachers loved it! It didn't cost us anything for food. For our teacher lunch to begin the year we have a family that owns a pizza business and they are donating all the pizza. The rest of us are bringing desserts and drinks. Good luck!
