This position is expected to be full-time, at 40 hours/week, including a weekly meeting with the kitchen.

Basic description:

Take pridesmanship of the deli, keeping the deli case, the prepared foods to go section, the freezer, and the beverage section organized and stocked, as well as maintaining a clean area for making sandwiches, serving soups, salads, and drinks, as well as preparing these items.   

Deli case - This is where foods will live when they come out of the kitchen and will need to be displayed, restocked, and packed out to order in a properly managed temperature setting. This case should have appropriate labels for each food item, be downsized or restocked as necessary, and the person caring for this should have an understanding about allergens, ingredients, and cross contamination.

Prepared foods to go - This section is an open refrigerator located in the deli that will be home to bottled drinks, packaged salads and sandwiches, cut cheese, cut veggies, fresh juices… It will need to be restocked, inventoried, and have freshness dates and temps taken daily.

The freezer - This area will need to have a proper rotation of stock and be inventoried as well as have soups and sauces packed for display with labels in the freezer. Fish or prepared meals may also need to be packed for display.

Beverages - This section is where all sorts of fun and interesting beverages will be produced, both to be packed and displayed in the to go case, as well as be served directly to the consumer. These beverages will include, but not be limited to: juices, coffees, smoothies, teas, seltzers, house made sodas, etc…

Prepared Foods - Finally, we have the prepared foods section, behind the deli case where we will serve hot and cold sandwiches to order, hot soups and a few other prepared foods that will not be coming out pre-made for the deli case. This will not be an extensive menu but more of a down to earth menu with simple ingredients, prepared well, and some specials. This area will need to stay clean and well prepped.

The kitchen:

Currently, the kitchen is being cheffed and managed by Amy, a human who is active in the local foods community in the Hudson Valley for over 12 years, who is sourcing ingredients and preparing them. This includes meats, veggies, fruits, more veggies, dairy, grains, and many foraged goods.

The kitchen and deli will be staffed with people and we will discuss the growing needs for more people as we grow. There is space for a cook, as well as a couple of humans to do prep work and dish work and general cleaning to keep the place bright and welcoming!
