The position of a lunch aide may seem like a simple one – but that is far from the truth. A lunch aide usually works in elementary and preschools where her job is to assist young students with lunchtime activities. This may include assisting them with opening their lunch boxes or packaged foods and helping them with waste removal activities.

Since people working at this position are in contact with children they need to practice a lot of tact and patience. It can be quite a tiresome job to manage lunchtime with so many children who may or may not want to listen to what you have to say.

The following is a resume sample for this position that may help you apply for a job in either an elementary or preschool setting.
