Status as of 9/30/16 As a result of meetings between Saraotoga High School staff and Saratoga businesses a pilot was run with Gluten Free Gourmet. The pilot did not fare well and has been suspended. But, based upon meetings that were conducted in the run-up, a monthly contract between the Saratoga franchise of Mountain Mike's and Saratoga High School was finalized. Our Saratoga high students are getting the opportunity to try out a Saratoga business offering in the comfort of Saratoga High School. I will look to try this pilot with other neighboring schools next.
ANNOUNCED MARCH 2016 JOIN THE “EAT IN SARATOGA” PROGRAM Friends, I am launching a pilot program starting in September 2016 to offer Saratoga restaurant food on Saratoga High campus during Saratoga High School’s lunch period. It is called, “ Saratoga Treats for Saratoga Students”, this will create additional lunch time options for Saratoga High students.
If you own a restaurant and are interested in offering your food for sale at Saratoga High School, please sign-up here http://tinyurl.com/SaratogaTreats Read the Saratoga News article http://tinyurl.com/EatinSaratoga
This is part of an initiative to help create a culture of supporting Saratoga businesses, a program called “Eat in Saratoga”. This is my creative idea to boost Saratoga businesses as a Saratoga Councilman, looking to help our businesses and also our students who attend Saratoga High with lunch options, and keeping them safe on campus during lunch (instead of driving off campus to be back on campus under a time crunch)
The list of interested businesses so far: Hachi Ju Hachi, East Coast Alice, Bell Tower Café, Jakes of Saratoga, Erik's DeliCafe, Gluten Free Gourmet, LLC, Togo's Sandwiches (Saratoga-Sunnyvale), Togo's Sandwiches (Saratoga Avenue), Mountain Mike's Pizza, Saratoga Bagels, and La Cueva.
