We believe that food service is an important feature of hospitality we offer to campers and conference center guests.  We are looking for someone with creativity, enthusiasm, maturity and common sense to be both a leader and member of our food service team.  Currently we serve 27,000 meals annually.

We would like ‘scratch cooking’ to be utilized much more over ‘heat and eat’ as a method for preparing our meals.   The meals prepared should utilize fresh produce when available (we have our own garden) and be colorful and flavorful.  It is important to limit food waste.  We compost whatever we can and would like our food service operation to align with Ferncliff’s commitment to sustainable practices.

Supervise and coordinate activities of cooks, food service staff and volunteers
Hire and train food service staff
