Head Cook

The King’s Academy, a Christian K-12 school in Jonesboro, IN is looking for a Head Cook for their hot lunch program. For the past 10 years, The King’s Academy has operated a hot lunch program that serves 110 meals a day three days a week and provided pizza on a fourth. We are looking for an experienced cook who could at minimum fill that time (four days a week) but are open to having the right person serve hot lunches Monday through Friday. The position has traditionally been paid hourly for 6 hours a day four days a week.  The pay is commensurate with experience. There is a kitchen assistant who has prep and dishwasher responsibilities. Also, a current staff member has done much of the shopping and this same individual has supervised students to assist with meal prep, but we are willing to discuss changing the duties of the Head Cook to include more responsibility in this area, obviously for a higher hourly wage.

We are looking for an enthusiastic self starter who loves serving Jesus by serving kids (and adults) through healthy, tasty meals. Please forward a resume or send application to Al Soultz
