About Broadway Community

Broadway Community serves hundreds of New Yorkers experiencing homelessness and hunger through a broad range of programs including a soup kitchen, a food pantry, a seven-night-a-week shelter, on-site medical services, a computer lab, employment assistance, benefits enrollment, a life skills program, and more. Our guests receive more than meals, shelter, and services: Broadway Community strives to create an environment of support approachability, friendliness, dignity, and welcome for all.

About the Chef and Food Service Director Role

With significant latitude for independent decision making, the Chef and Food Service Director will oversee all food service programs at Broadway Community (e.g. soup kitchen and food pantry) in addition to serving as a key member of the senior management team. Reporting directly to the Executive Director and working with a talented team of staff and volunteers, the Chef will ensure that all food programs operate within budgeted guidelines and to the highest safety and quality standards.

Duties
  • Preparing menus for our Soup Kitchen, Shelter, and Community Table programs (and other programs as may be developed over time) and manage all related planning (including ordering supplies, coordinating prep schedules, and overseeing meal preparation);
  • Preparing and serving over 50,000 high-quality meals a year through our soup kitchen;
  • Overseeing the ordering, storage, and distribution of food at our food pantry;
  • Serving our guests with unconditional dignity and hospitality.
  • Maintaining food cost controls through careful purchasing, record keeping, and inventory;
  • Adhering to all Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH) guidelines and regulations in nutrition standards and food handling.
  • Coordinating with local CSA and LPL programs to get fresh produce to our neighbors in need.
  • Developing additional food service programming in relationship to our mission as the need arises;
  • Provide opportunities for Food Service education, including vocational training and domestic food preparation and nutrition training.
  • Other duties as assigned.
Requirements

We are seeking an individual with an unwavering commitment to building a community that delivers on our mission: 

Broadway Community sets an abundant table, believing that everyone deserves justice, dignity, health, and wholeness. We empower one another with nourishing food, a welcoming environment, shelter, medical care, life skills practice, and faithful accompaniment through challenging times. We serve one another - breaking down barriers of poverty, inequity, and privilege - until all are fed, in body and spirit. We serve.

Professional Qualifications
  • Bachelor's Degree with major course work in food service, nutrition or institutional management OR a minimum of three years of full-time management experience in the food service industry. Other education and work experience combinations will be considered.
  • Strong cooking ability, with understanding of all basic cooking techniques;
  • NYC Food Protection Certificate and well-versed in DOHMH food standards and regulations;
  • Passion for service, particularly for those underserved in broader society;
  • Good verbal and communication skills (bilingual a plus);
  • Basic computer literacy, including Microsoft and Google programs;

Experience, Knowledge, Skills & Abilities
  • Unwavering commitment to quality programs for our Guests.
  • Ability to work effectively in collaboration with diverse groups of people;
  • Strong organizational management with the ability to coach staff, manage, and develop high-performance teams, set and achieve strategic objectives, and manage a budget;
  • Position requires excellent interpersonal skills and problem-solving skills;
  • Ability to work well under pressure, be flexible, and delegate tasks;
  • Team player who works well with others with strong leading and organizational skills.

Working Conditions
  • The Broadway Community facilities are unfortunately not wheelchair accessible  – access to the space requires the ability to maneuver safely up and down flights of stairs;
  • Ability to lift and carry heavy objects up to 50 pounds;
  • Ability to stand for long periods of time.
Benefits
  • Full medical coverage
  • Two weeks of paid vacation.
  • 403(b)
  • Flexible spending account
