As the Activity Director of a large high school (120+ teachers, 90+ support staff) my leadership class is in charge of Staff Appreciation. Every year we survey the staff as to what they want for gifts. Always tops of the list is food. We have had catered lunches, classroom delivered breakfast and lunch, after school snack sessions, and bags of "on the go" food (small items they can keep in their desk drawer and need no prep). At the beginning of the year we give small bags of office supplies (pens, pencils, erasures, post-its, paper clips, etc.) - things they can use during the year. At the end of the year we send thank you grams - any student on campus can write a note to a teacher and we deliver it with a candy bar. We have also washed cars, (deep) cleaned rooms, worked in their rooms after school, photo copied papers - anythings that would save or give them more time to do things they would like to do outside of being a teacher.

By the way, all the food we serve is professionally prepared.
