Pedestal Foods Pin Nominee


Teresa Hahs, Cook

Ursuline Academy, St. Louis, MO

Nominated by Marie LeBlanc, Food Service Manager


Teresa Hahs is a wonderful example of how Pedestal Foods team members embody our company values. Teresa demonstrates daily what it means to show COMMITMENT. 

Teresa started with Pedestal Foods in 2010, back when the company operated under a different brand name. She has stayed with the company across two different schools and a lot of growth and change. 

Teresa represents the best of Pedestal Foods every day, wearing her uniform and a smile. She is dedicated to making quality dishes and making sure everything in the kitchen is executed to perfection, from prepping and cooking to keeping our facilities clean and welcoming for students and staff.

She’s a true team player with a natural knack for jumping in to help wherever she’s needed. She’s been a wonderful example leader at Ursuline Academy, especially as we have shifted and adapted to staffing challenges during the pandemic. She has been instrumental in guiding temporary workers and helping them get up to speed quickly and accurately so we can continue to deliver our signature Pedestal Foods service. 

Thanks for all you do, Teresa – you are truly a gift to the company and the Ursuline Academy team!
