As Equity Advocates moves into its third year of operation, we are looking to build upon the leadership of our small but engaged Board of Directors. Our mission is to build the capacity of nonprofit organizations to address the underlying causes of food inequity through policy and systems change. We partner with New York-based organizations working to alleviate hunger and poverty, providing them with the tools they need to be more civically engaged—including policy education, advocacy training and coalition-building services.

Ideal candidates will have some or all of the following experience and qualifications:

  • Board experience (particularly non-profit).
  • Grant writing and fundraising from institutions, foundations, corporations and/or high net worth individuals.
  • Engaging in advocacy campaigns, policy change, and/or community organizing focused on poverty, food access and racial equity. Established relationships with Federal, NYS or NYC policy makers and/or staff.
  • Experience working in a community based nonprofit focused on fighting poverty and improving healthy food access.
  • Experience implementing racial equity frameworks for organizations.
  • Nonprofit management, legal or financial expertise.

Board Commitments Include:

  • Commit to a 2 year term with a possibility of consecutive terms
  • Attend at least 3 board meetings annually (currently virtual)
  • Stay informed about what's going on at the organization, become familiar with finances, budget, policy priorities and resource needs
  • Board members are asked to provide financial support to the organization through a minimum “give or get” donation of $5,000 per calendar year, inclusive of in kind support.
  • Commit to 5-10 hours per month for calls, meetings and project work on behalf of Equity Advocates based on your area of expertise (specifics to be determined together)
  • Advocate for our mission and needs in your own community and various networks


To ensure that our organization is truly community driven and that those most impacted by food inequality have a strong voice in our decision-making structure and advocacy priorities, we strongly encourage applications and nominations from directly impacted individuals, including BIPOC, women of color, and individuals from diverse backgrounds and identities (race, class, gender, LGBTQIA+, ability, etc.).
