Food Services Coordinator - Summer Program

Food Services Coordinator - Summer Program

The Opportunity

This position is a part-time contract position from mid-June to mid-August (with flexible start and end dates) serving on the Summer Programs Leadership Team at Carolina Friends School. 

The Food Services Coordinator will be responsible for morning snacks, lunch service, and preparation of an afternoon snack. 

  • Morning snack happens around 10:30 each morning and entails selling packaged goods to campers. 
  • Lunch service happens around noon and includes preparing and serving basic entrees such as pizza, mac and cheese, chicken nuggets, bagels, etc. with the support of other Leadership Team members and interns.
  • The afternoon snack–a fresh fruit; chips, pretzels, or some other dry item; and lemonade–will be prepared by the Coordinator and served later in the day by interns. 

This role will also be responsible for stocking and cleaning our industrial-grade kitchen. The Food Services Coordinator will only need to provide the list of supplies to our Supply Coordinator rather than be responsible for sourcing and shopping. On-campus beds hold a number of different herbs, and we’re happy to support additional plantings.

This role will require ServSafe certification; for anyone without it, we would cover the cost and compensate the person for their time to take the requisite class. 

Hourly pay is competitive, and a 50% Summer Programs camp tuition benefit is also available for staff children. 

This position will collaborate closely with other leadership Team members. Our hope is always to nurture a fun, safe, and welcoming environment that makes working in the summer a true joy. You’ll get to know children across ages and from many places (150+ schools in multiple states and countries). At the end of each day, you’ll leave knowing you've helped create a powerful and positive experience for the CFS Summer Programs community!

The Successful Candidate will have:

  • personal and/or professional interest in cooking, culinary arts, food service, and/or hospitality trades (relevant experience is a plus, but not required)
  • the organizational skills to execute our food service operation
  • the ability to meet varied demands with integrity, enthusiasm, creativity, flexibility, and a sense of humor 
  • the ability to foster positive and collaborative relationships with and among students and colleagues
  • a love of children and joy in working with them
  • an understanding of and strong affinity for the School’s mission and the work of our Summer Programs
  • an appreciation of how power and inequality–influenced by factors such as race, class, gender, sexuality, and learning and physical disabilities–impact our students and families
  • the ability to satisfactorily complete a criminal background check and demonstrate an ability to work legally in the U.S.
