Job Description

Being a Gourmet Gorilla employee means being part of something bigger than ourselves.  When we arrive to work each day, we make a choice.  Are we going to approach our work as a job, a career or a calling? Our hope is that each of our team members believes their place within our organization is a calling.  Each person in every position affects the lives of children through the meals we serve each day.  We have true purpose. 

We continue to be amazed and humbled by the passion and integrity we see every day among our team.  We have entered a time in the company when inspiration, grit and creativity are necessities. We’ll continue to search for new and better ways to bring fresh, locally and responsibly sourced, scratch-made meals to kids plates.  We will never settle for average and will always reach for the previously unreachable. Impossible is only a measure until it becomes possible! 

We are growing and improving each year. Every time we fall, we are committed to learning from that fall and becoming stronger as a result.  Every time we succeed, we are committed to pushing further to become better.
