Job objective
Food truck line cooks are the people responsible for making sure that food is prepared to the exact specifications of the chef, food truck owner and customer.

Responsibilities
Areas of Responsibilities
• Set Up. The line cook is responsible for preparing their station(s) before the start of each shift. The line cook must make sure that all the supplies that will be needed are available and ready for use. This can include preparing some items in the commercial kitchen before they are stored in the food truck, or performing simple tasks such as stocking the truck with carry out boxes or food boats.
• Prepping Food. The line cook will be asked to prep food for service each day. This can mean chopping vegetables, butchering meat, or preparing sauces. Depending on the needs of the food truck, the line cook may also be asked to prepare items for special events.
• Cooking. During a shift, the line cook is responsible for preparing the items requested from their station. This requires working with other cooks in the truck to make sure that food is ready at the right time, in the right order so that it arrives at the service window ready to eat and at the right temperature. The food truck manager will often direct a line cook as he prepares the food.
• Clean Up. At the end of a shift, the line cook is responsible for cleaning their station, and may be asked to help others clean up the entire food truck. This means disposing of garbage, cleaning utensils, pots, and pans, and cleaning cooking surfaces. The line cook will also be responsible for taking care of leftover food, whether that means disposing of it, returning unused items to the correct inventory location, or storing cooked goods for use at another service.
• Stocking. In cases where a food truck has access to storage, the line cook is also called on to unload delivery trucks and store inventory correctly. This can mean stocking pantries or walk in refrigerators, or simply inventorying items and reporting to the food truck manager or owner.
