“You feel like a big family, where you can lift each other up and help each other be the best you can be.”  Member of the Bethesda Community

Do you have a desire to be a part of an inspirational apartment community where people are accepted with all their abilities? Where the interdependence of us all makes us stronger? If you have a call to bring your gifts and skills to this unique opportunity, you might be the person we are seeking.

This role is a part-time, contract position. As the meal coordinator, you will plan 5 evening meals per week and be responsible for preparing 1-3 of the meals. You will collaborate with the on-site caretaker, who will prepare the remaining 2 meals. You will also arrange for a replacement for when you are away.

The meal coordinator role is more than just a job.
