Good Food Fund Coordinator

Thanks to a grant from Awards for All we are looking to employ a part-time coordinator to run and develop the Good Food Fund. This will involve managing all aspects of the project from tracking donations and spend to making links with new partners and promoting the project to increase donations.

The role will involve working closely with the Grow the Growers coordinator to link both projects together. This will allow us to make opportunities for food bank users and supporters to get involved with growing food and growers to get involved in supplying food banks.

The role will be an average of seven hours a week and be worked flexibly to meet the needs of the role. Initially the funding covers 12 months but the idea is that by the end of the project there is sufficient regular donations to make the post ongoing.
