Description

Salvation Farms’ mission is to build increased resilience in Vermont’s food system through agricultural surplus management. Our work explores diverse opportunities to respond to Vermont’s farm surplus food in an effort to build food system security, and regional food resilience. We run a gleaning program, serve as backbone support to the Vermont Gleaning Collective, and have operated a surplus crop food hub and workforce development program. Other aspects of our work include technical assistance, creating resources for gleaners, supply chain development, experiential education, community building, cross-sector colleague collaboration, research, dialogue facilitation, and state, regional, and national engagement. 

The Strategy & Advocacy Coordinator is responsible for organizing and supporting the research, advocacy, and thought leadership components of Salvation Farms’ work.

Responsibilities include project management, outreach, and stakeholder engagement necessary to advance Salvation Farms’ mission and vision within Vermont, regionally, and nationally. In partnership with the Leadership Team, this position will help develop Salvation Farms’ technical assistance services as well as our legislative approach. The Strategy & Advocacy Coordinator will support staff in constituent management and communications, as well as outward-facing development efforts like special events and gatherings.

This position will also further the impact of Salvation Farms by improving data management and analysis, providing backbone support to the Vermont Gleaning Collective, and bringing research and thought leadership findings to the ongoing exploration of program innovations and new partnerships. As the organization’s priorities evolve and mature, this position will carry out additional responsibilities as needed to deepen the impact of Salvation Farms’ mission. This position will require an individual with high attention to detail, humility, and charisma.
