Are you an experienced Policy Director looking to make a difference in the lives of 330,000 Alameda County residents? Are you passionate about the power of grassroots organizing, and want to apply your political skills to help one of the Bay Area’s top non-profits — and a nationally recognized leader in hunger relief — amplify its impact? If so, Alameda County Community Food Bank may be looking for you as our next Director of Policy and Partnerships (DPP).
Our nationally-recognized policy work is a critical component of ACCFB’s mission – aiming to generate 75 million meals annually by 2022 through systems change alone. The Director of Policy and Partnerships spearheads the strategic development and implementation of the Food Bank’s policy agenda at all levels of government, as we work to strengthen safety net resources and advance a more inclusive economy. As an exuberant and passionate leader, the DPP manages a team of seasoned policy professionals, which emboldens our community in the movement to end hunger – marrying equity and inclusion, advocacy, community engagement/education and strong partnerships with public and private organizations.
Understanding that racism is one of the single biggest drivers which perpetuates poverty in our community, the DPP also leads our strategy -- both internally and externally— for advancing equity and inclusion. Our staff regularly engage in conversations about race, class, power and privilege as part of our organizational commitment to build a more just Alameda County.
The 2016 Feeding America Food Bank of the Year, Alameda County Community Food Bank is a well-established and multi-faceted organization serving 1 in 5 Alameda County residents. Our success is built on bold decision-making, a culture of equity and inclusivity, and an environment that embraces innovative thinking. We have received Charity Navigator’s top rating for 13 consecutive years, ranking us among the top one percent of charities nationwide. Please learn more about our efforts at www.accfb.org.
