Associate Director, Programs; The Food Group / Minnesota Food Association

The Food Group / Minnesota Food Association is now hiring!

The Food Group (TFG) is a local nonprofit focused on advancing healthy food
access. Established in 1976, they provide nutritious food and support services
to over 240 hunger relief partners and food distribution locations.

In April 2017, Minnesota Food Association/Big River Farms (MFA) became a
program of TFG. By combining two important components of the food system that
have mostly been separate, this partnership is on the cutting edge of
community work. Our newly joined efforts will focus on breaking down the
barriers that exist for sustainable farmers to grow good food locally while
also fighting the barriers that exist to getting good food to those who need
it most.

The Associate Director, Programs is a full time, salaried position. This
position is responsible for ensuring Minnesota Food Association’s (MFA)
programs have the ability to create a sustainable food system, develop
commercially viable farmers, and leading The Food Group’s Micro Farm in New
Hope, gleaning and all other produce programming.  Read the full description,
and how to apply, here.

People of Color and LGBTQ people are strongly encouraged to apply. The Food
Group is an equal opportunity employer.

Applications will be accepted until July 17th, 2017.
