Looking for work that keeps you close (but not too close) to your kids? How about a job that allows you to be home when the schools are closed? A job in the cafeteria might be for you!

Don’t have school-aged kids?
When you work in the cafeteria, you’ll have hundreds.

Our entry-level positions range from 4 to 5.75 hours per day with evenings and weekends off, making it a great job for anyone needing part-time daytime work.

Experienced Food Service Managers

We are always looking for experienced food service managers to lead a team of dedicated culinary professionals. Compared to the private foodservice industry, we offer great hours and benefits!

As a specialized type of food service management, we require our Cafeteria Managers to participate in a School Nutrition Management Training program prior to placement as a manager in a school. We typically recruit for this program in January and February, but we will consider qualified foodservice managers on a rolling basis. Contact our HR Generalist for more information.
