Are you an experienced program coordinator who wants to make a difference in the lives of 116,000 Alameda County residents every month? Are you passionate about using your relationship building skills to make a significant impact and reduce food waste in our community? Do you want to learn program analysis and apply your skills to helping one of the Bay Area’s top non-profits — and a nationally recognized leader in hunger relief — demonstrate their community impact? If so, the Alameda County Community Food Bank may be looking for you as our next Food Recovery Program Coordinator.

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 organization’s success is built on bold decision-making and an environment that embraces innovative thinking. We have received Charity Navigator’s top rating for 12 consecutive years, ranking us among the top one percent of charities nationwide.

With our new strategic plan, we are setting a bold trajectory for the long-term work required to dismantle the systems that perpetuate poverty, including racism. Our staff regularly engage in conversations about race, class, power and privilege as part of our organizational commitment to equity, diversity and inclusion. Please learn more about our efforts at www.accfb.org.

The Food Bank strives to maximize food recovery through program growth and innovation. The Food Recovery Program Coordinator supports that goal by partnering with retailers — think Safeway, Costco, Sprouts —to manage a donation program, cutting out the middleman by diverting food surpluses directly to the community organizations that need them. A critical component of this position is to maintain strong relationships with Alameda County Community Food Bank’s member agencies and food donors through site visits, trainings, addressing issues, managing reporting and analyzing data.
