At The University of Vermont Medical Center, we understand that nutrition and food systems are inextricably linked to the health of our patients and our community. This is reflected in our commitment to serving fresh, locally produced, minimally processed foods, and to partnering with farmers throughout the region to supply healthier food to patients while boosting the local economy. The Line Cook is responsible for the preparation of nutritious, high quality meals in a high volume environment, serving patients, employees, visitors and catering requisitions. Instead of delivering trays with the same meals at the same time regardless of patient preferences or schedules, the UVM Medical Center allows patients to order what they want when they want it. This significantly reduces food waste and improves the care experience for our patients and families. This service is winning "four-star reviews" from patients and has been recognized in the national media. Our goal is to be a national role model for healthy and sustainable food systems.
