Cafeteria cooks prepare and cook large amounts of food for a limited number of entrees, vegetables, soups, salads and desserts. They work in settings such as schools, hospitals, nursing homes and companies that have their own cafeterias. The meals are typically prepared in advance.

Head cafeteria cooks supervise the other kitchen employees, determine food requirements and order the appropriate supplies. They may also plan menus and determine food portions. Head cooks are also responsible for uniform quality and presentation of meals.

Responsibilities

  • Prepare meats, vegetables, soups, desserts and salads for school cafeterias and other settings.
  • Clean equipment
  • Check to see if equipment is functioning properly
  • Wash pots and pans, cooking equipment and utensils
  • Some cooks keep records of food costs and transactions
  • Decide food portions
  • Some cooks order food supplies and kitchen equipment
  • Cook foods based on menus
  • Sometimes prepare foods with nutritional restrictions
  • Supervise food preparers

Job Characteristics

Many cafeteria kitchens include modern equipment, air conditioning and are well ventilated. However, some of the older cafeterias are not well designed. Regarding employment, typically full-time and part-time jobs are available.

Cafeteria cooks must be able to work effectively as part of a team and be proficient. They also need to have a keen sense of taste and smell. In addition, being able to communicate in popular foreign languages can be helpful while working with other kitchen employees.

Employment Outlook

In 2006, the median earnings of cafeteria and institution cooks was $20,410. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, in 2006 there were about 401,000 cooks employed in cafeterias and other institutions. About 15% of all cooks, chefs and food preparation workers were employed in institutions such as schools, universities, nursing cafe facilities and hospitals.

The job growth for cafeteria cooks is projected to be as fast as average for all other occupations from 2006-2016. The need for cooks will increase due to an increase in the population and the desire to eat at food establishments such as cafeterias. The demand will also increase for cooks since a large number of workers leave the occupation and have to be replaced. However, schools, hospitals and offices are increasingly contracting out their food services which will decrease the demand for cafeteria cooks.

Those with experience and demonstrate the ability to accomplish more difficult tasks and take on more responsibilities have opportunities to become head cooks and supervise the kitchen staff.

Cafeteria Cook Training, Certification, and Licensing

Typically, cafeteria cooks are provided with on-the-job training. Training usually includes food preparation, cooking techniques and a solid foundation in basic sanitation, safety and food handling techniques.

Some employers require a high school diploma. Experience is helpful for obtaining employment and some employers may prefer some vocational training or occupation-related education courses. Often, those without experience begin their careers as kitchen assistants.

Head cooks are typically required to have many years of experience. Some employers prefer to hire head cooks that have formal training in programs which last from a few months to a couple of years. The shorter programs usually provide training in basic cooking methods. They also provide training with food handling and sanitation procedures and nutrition.

Culinary programs provide plenty of hands-on learning in kitchens. The programs also provide training in purchasing and inventory methods, nutrition, menu planning and food storage procedures. Some of the culinary programs also offer a thorough review of food service management, inventory software, computer accounting and banquet service.

Partnerships of the U.S. Department of Labor with culinary schools, trade unions and industry associations provide apprenticeship programs for cooks in a variety of settings.

Numerous school districts offer on-the-job training and summer workshops for cafeteria kitchen workers who desire to be employed as cooks.
