The cook prepares the weekly menus with the help of the Executive Director. The menus must contain meals in accordance with CACFP requirements for nutritional values. A Food Production Record must be completed after every meal is prepared, indicating the ingredients used, amount used, and the number of students served. These records must be maintained daily and in an orderly manner.

The cook is responsible for preparing and cooking all the meals that will be served to the children in our care.
