Job Description


Make a meaningful impact as a Kitchen Team Member at Marta partnering on a special project with Rethink! 

Founded by CEO Danny Meyer with the opening of Union Square Cafe in 1985, Union Square Hospitality Group has created some of New York’s most beloved restaurants, cafes, and bars such as Gramercy Tavern, Maialino, The Modern, and Porchlight to name a few! 

Marta has partnered with Rethink for a temporary project to assist with food production to feed and support local businesses in the greater New York area. 

Rethink Food NYC Inc is a non-profit organization that utilizes food excess from restaurants, grocery stores and corporate kitchens to create new and nutritious meals for those in need.  Research shows about 40% of the food produced in America today goes to waste; this is equivalent to 70 billion tons. 42 million people are facing hunger in the United States, but there is enough food to feed everyone – Rethink is working to make this happen.  Rethink has also set up operations for Emergency Food Management, to not only feed those in need during times of crisis, but to fund and activate local food purveyors during these times. This is a model that commenced in New York City in response to COVID-19, with plans to roll out nationally as need grows. Rethink is working on this to be a federally funded program, so the country can not only feed Americans in need, but also employ and help American businesses during times of crisis.
