“As a former educator, and someone that has always possessed a fascination with the culinary world, I feel so fortunate to have a job that allows me to unite both of my passions. It is such a pleasure to be a part of HandCut Foods. Working for a company that not only focuses on feeding children wholesome, well-balanced meals, but one that also broadens the horizons of our young diners is incredibly fun and fulfilling!”

Join Our Team

Want to know what it's like to work at HandCut Foods? Let us tell you a bit about it.

We believe in having healthy balance in our lives and on our plates.

We are proud to promote work-life balance, which attracts highly skilled employees who might not typically be drawn to contract food service. Our staff draws mainly from the restaurant and hotel employee pools, especially from those looking for an improved schedule and quality of life. 

We believe that motivated and incentivized employees deliver the best hospitality. We invest in our employees, spending time to develop their technical skills, creativity, and overarching passion for responsible food.

“Working for HandCut has given me such a positive and unique experience in the foodservice industry. While finishing a degree in nutrition I have been able to practice what I preach by serving and handling food that provides our clients with healthful, sustainable, and delicious options.”

— Amelia Belmonte
Account Manager
