Dozens of food orders wait to be picked up in front of the school on Jan. 29, the first of three days the catering truck accepted pre-orders in a fundraiser for Archbishop Riordan that collected nearly $1,000.

Scott’s Seafood sailed onto the Riordan campus on Jan. 29, Feb. 19, and March 26 to serve up soups, salads and other seafood dishes with some of the earnings going to the school.

Andrew Palmyra, the director of food truck operation and catering events, said, “Steve Mayer (’72) connected us up with Andrew Currier, (the president) and we connected and tried to figure out a collaboration where we can offer our products (such as the seafood items and everything from our restaurant) and we would be able to deliver all the way to Riordan High School on a certain date.”

He added, “And whatever the sales were, we would donate 10 percent of the proceeds back to Riordan High School.”

Since the school received 10 percent of the profits, the school got $700 of the $6,805 earned for January’s event and $260 for February’s event, which brought in $2,537.

According to Palmyra, their biggest sellers were Seafood Salad, Scott’s Boston Clam Chowder (white cream) and Cioppino in a Bowl, and there were more people on Jan. 29 than Feb. 19 and March 26.
