Vacancy Nutrition Assistant FoodForcare

For FoodforCare, location Radboudumc, we are looking for catering toppers with a heart for care!

At least six times a day, the nutrition assistant visits patients with dishes. The patients receive an explanation of the ingredients on the spot and you focus on the intake of proteins.
