Our vision is that no child should be alone in grief.
Judi’s House/JAG Institute (JH/JAG) is the only free-standing organization in Metro Denver devoted solely to supporting grieving youth and families through comprehensive care, research, education, and advocacy. Since 2002, JH/JAG has supported nearly 12,000 individuals, and educated many thousands more, toward the vision that no child should be alone in grief. Join our team on our mission to help children and families grieving a death find connection and healing.
With the help of our volunteers and nourishment providers we provide pre-group meals to our clients so that they can focus on their grief journey without the worry of preparing a meal. Our Food Services Manager oversees this program and is responsible for developing, managing, overseeing cooking, and monitoring of evening meals for clients receiving services at Judi’s House.
The ideal candidate manages the kitchen and administrative duties such as menu planning, food ordering and shopping, and inventory control for the evening Nourishment Program while also acting as a quality assurance manager for the clients’ dietary needs. The Food Services Manager requires dedication, commitment, time management, decision-making, and the ability to maintain good relationships with all clients, staff, volunteers, and vendors. Candidates should be able to communicate clearly, respond quickly, and work as part of a team.
