Meet Our Hampton Campus Cook – Hinako Inoue
When asked what she loved the most about her job, Hinako didn’t have to think too hard. While a role as a Campus Cook can be demanding, Hinako says that nothing can beat the moment you see a child step out of their comfort zone to try new foods and enjoy different for the first time. ‘Cooking for the children at Hampton campus is honestly such a pleasure as I feel appreciated by not only the children but the team.’
This is the first time Hinako has worked in an early childhood education and childcare environment. ‘Every moment here has been a huge learning curve. Seeing firsthand the development of children, whether it is learning to walk or learning new words has been a very memorable experience for me.’
‘My job allows me to help children foster a healthy relationship with food in their formative years which is extremely important for long term health. Providing the children with healthy and delicious food is what motivates me each and every day.’
The Hampton team, children and families have expressed their gratitude to have Hinako in charge of the kitchen and she feels just as blessed to be there.
