A food preparation worker is ultimately the precursor to any sort of cooking job – that is, these individuals perform all of the tasks necessary to prepare food for its ultimate cooking. This can include a myriad of tasks, whether the food prep worker is dealing with frozen meats, fresh vegetables, or beverages. Depending on the food preparation worker’s specialty or area of skill, individuals in this occupation could spend their days cleaning various food products or food production areas; effectively storing food so that it remains fresh; slicing, dicing and cutting meats, vegetables, fruits, seafood, dairy products, and grains; removing unnecessary components of food (such as peels and cores); taking stock of and measuring ingredients; and artfully preparing and decorating plates to please the customer.

Because of the specialized nature of this occupation, food preparation workers must be well equipped with the knowledge and experience to perform their roles correctly. Knowledge of a variety of kitchen equipment (e.g., commercial kitchen hardware, cutlery, ice shavers, ice cream machines, etc.) is essential, as are communication skills and knowledge of the overall life of food. Because so much work involves strong collaboration with other members of the culinary team, being able to state needs and expectations explicitly and clearly and follow them when they are given is a great benefit in the kitchen. In addition, food preparation workers may need to use database software to keep records of inventory, recipes, and budgets, and to schedule shifts and responsibilities. Food preparation workers must also have good time management skills, as they will often be working on a deadline each day to ensure that everything is ready for the chefs come meal time. A close attention to detail is also valuable not only because cooking is in many ways a science as much as an art, but also because improper handling and cleanliness in a kitchen environment can result in unhappy clients at best and food poisoning or even illness at worst. This occupation really works off of work experience rather than any certain degree of education, so oftentimes, not even a high school diploma is necessary for a career as a food preparation worker.

Below are some employment trends for Food Preparation Workers:
