At Bickford, meal time is the most important time of the day. You could say the most important three times each day. As an Assistant Cook, you provide good old fashioned home cooking as our Friends gather around the dining table to share stories, relive past experiences and talk about the big news of the day. As you get to know each Friends individual tastes watch their eyes light up when you provide them the pie they baked for their own family for so many years.
