Pros: working with children and staff
Cons: the pay, no healthcare
A typical day for me would certainly depend on what day it is. As a
Cafeteria Manager I am responsible for a variety of tasks. Each day entails using the program software to order the correct quantity of lunches, fruits and vegetables for our lunch and Early Childhood program to meet the dietary needs of our students
I maintain paperwork, meal counts for the state which are recorded and reported daily, supply orders, dairy orders as well as receiving these orders daily.
My position also entails cooking and preparing meals, as well as taking temperatures of all foods prepared so as to maintain health department standards for safe food handling. I also have my Serv-Safe certification, which is required for food preparation.
My co-workers that I supervise daily are a good support system, We all have to work together each day to get the job done.
There really is no hard part of my job. I enjoy working with my staff and the children each day.
