Every job within our school district is crucial to the health and success of our students. Without cafeteria staff, we cannot feed our children. As you likely know, a number of our students depend on the school to provide two nutritious meals a day because their home situation does not provide this for them. Some of our students only eat while they are at school. Let that sink in. If you are looking for a meaningful way to give back, please consider applying to work in one of our cafeterias. YOU WILL BE MAKING A DIFFERENCE! We need your help! Apply today:
