Food Security Specialist

Website Hunger Free Vermont

Be part of a highly successful team fulfilling Hunger Free Vermont’s mission to end the injustice of hunger and malnutrition for all Vermonters. Under the supervision of the Food Security Advocacy Manager, you will provide integrated outreach and training for the programs that feed food insecure Vermonters, with an emphasis on 3SquaresVT (known nationally as SNAP). You will help to create and implement targeted strategies to reach vulnerable populations such as college students, families with children, older Vermonters, and New Americans, and empower Vermonters to use their benefits to buy healthy food at retailers, including co-ops and farmers markets. You will develop a strong understanding of the federal safety net programs, and work collaboratively with state agency and community organization partners to lower barriers to participation, increase access, ensure sustainability, and counter stigma so that all Vermonters, especially the most vulnerable, take part in all the programs for which they may be eligible.
