Lunch Bunch at El Camino Elementary School

Annually a team of employees from Goleta Sanitary District heads over to El Camino Elementary School to educate students on wastewater treatment and resource recovery efforts as part of the United Way of Santa Barbara County's Fun in the Sun summer learning program. We also play games with the kids, share lunch, and talk about our jobs. Who knows, maybe some of the graduates of Fun in the Sun may work at the District one day!
