Our Food Services team is responsible for providing over 400 meals per day to our students, staff and guests. Together, the Food Services team creates healthy and nourishing food, often tailored to specific dietary needs of the students on campus. The Food Services Associate supports the safe and timely delivery of food to all those on campus and is specifically responsible for maintaining cleanliness, sanitation, and food safety standards. The Food Services Associate also ensures the dish washing area is clean, safe and sanitary. The Food Services Associate will have some food preparation responsibilities ~ specifically preparing our fresh salad bar.
