Dishes Washed Weekly

“Certainly, dish room operations are critical for any dining or restaurant operation, and to have our managers and chefs not have to focus on that piece of it, from staffing to supervision, and even from the quality of the work and the cleanliness, is a big, big support.”

Jeff Scott

Director, Sodexo Dining at Ithaca College

Larry Workman
General Manager

For many years, Challenge Contract Staffing has been meeting the contract staffing needs of the two largest educational institutions in Tompkins County – while providing on-the-job training and career paths for people with barriers to employment.

Our fully supervised crews deliver hundreds of shifts per week to cover dish rooms and other dining room responsibilities for our customers. By focusing on delivering service to large dining hall operations, we’re able to let our customers focus on delivering balanced meals to students. When they engage our Contract Staffing business, customers know their dish rooms are running safely and efficiently and other staffing needs are being fulfilled.

And, we handle recruiting, payroll, insurance and day-to-day management for all of our crews, while meeting strict contract and legal requirements.

For all your Staffing needs please Contact Larry Workman by completing this form in as much detail as possible:

Working Together With Cayuga Ridge

Challenge continues to grow its partnership with Cayuga Ridge Skilled Nursing & Rehabilitation Center, and has been a big part of the facility's efforts to add a new Sensory Room for residents.

Challenge volunteers have helped to get the room ready, but were also a big part of the fundraising effort to make the room happen. A volunteer group of individuals from Challenge spends time on Tuesdays and Thursdays helping out in the facility, and one of their jobs was to help with fundraisers, such as selling ice cream, to make the room happen.

John Eilers-Lloyd, the Director of Recreation and Volunteer Services at Cayuga Ridge, says the group from Challenge "sold a LOT of ice cream" to make the room a reality.

Challenge volunteers also help out and spend time with residents inside the new Sensory Room.

John explains in this video what the room is all about.
