Job Summary

You bake, you mix, you mash, you pour your heart into the meals you serve. If the kitchen is your domain and you love serving others, then the Good Samaritan Society offers the opportunity to use your experience in a challenging but exciting position as a Food and Nutrition Assistant.

Just ask our employees - it's what they love most about their role at the Society. That, and our opportunities for advancement.

You'll serve snacks and supplements and connect with residents each day as you document nutritional intake. You'll also help with dining and kitchen cleanup, safety monitoring, and sanitary practices to avoid contamination. It's fast-paced work, but the time goes quickly.
