In addition, you would serve an already prepared lunch (provided by a caterer) on Tuesdays through Fridays.  Finally, you would wash minimal dishes and keep the kitchen clean on a daily basis.  With assistance from the Site Director you would also be responsible for coordinating and supervising any available trainees or volunteers to help with preparation, serving and clean-up.

Active demonstration of Peninsula Family Services’ VALUES are expected of every staff member. All of our work is based on our commitment to Integrity, Respect, Compassion, Diversity, Teamwork and Adaptability.
