The K-12 Food Service Program was designed specifically with our clients in mind. We have created a workforce solutions process that provides simplicity, service, and compliant staff.


Our goal is to provide qualified, professional food service staff (food service workers, culinary staff, and management) during planned and unplanned absences and vacancies for K-12 education facilities.

  • All candidates are screened, interviewed and selected based on experience, personality and skill.
  • Candidates will be required to pass a background check based on client requirements, (fingerprinting is required), and must have a valid Food Handler Certification on file with DPS.
  • Assignments may be short term (1-2 days) or long term (multiple weeks - semester long)
  • Normal business hours can range anywhere between 6am - 4pm, Monday - Friday depending on the hours of service of the assigned location.
    *optional afternoon / evening program staff available
  • Attempts will be made to place employees near their closest school location based on region, however this is not gauranteed. 
  • Weekly schedules will be sent to designated manager (site specific) on Friday for following week. If you would like to request a different scheduling confirmation method, please let us know.
