The International Fellowship House is currently accepting applications for a live-in, part-time (20-25 hours/week) male Cook and Kitchen Manager. Combine your passion for serving others with your passion for food!


What is the International Fellowship House?

The International Fellowship House (IFH) is a non-profit home to around twenty male international students and researchers. More than just a boarding house, the IFH strives to have as much of the atmosphere, comfort, and fellowship of a home as possible. We believe that sharing meals is essential for creating a home and for true community to develop. Therefore, the position of Cook and Kitchen Manager is of vital importance to the IFH.

The primary responsibility of the Cook and Kitchen Manager is to help facilitate this environment through the service of meals and kitchen management. The Cook and Kitchen Manager prepares dinner meals 5 nights per week Monday-Friday, purchases supplies, maintains kitchen organization and hygiene, and works closely with the Resident Manager. As a fellow resident of the community, the Cook and Kitchen Manager is expected to participate in the life of the community as outlined in our Handbook.
