FCS SA Cookware Recovery & Reuse VISTA @ SF
StarkFresh is a small, but mighty 501(c)3 nonprofit located in Canton, OH, & servicing Stark County, OH. Our mission is tackling the causes of hunger by creating realistic pathways out of poverty. Although our organization has been around in various fashions since 1984, we didn’t start focusing on food insecurity until 2011. Being a small organization with several large-scale programs & a limited paid staff, we are quite adept at utilizing partnerships & our volunteer network to keep the programs running smoothly. StarkFresh programs include Free Seed Library network, Teaching Farm, Training Farm, Cooperative Farm, Food Justice Campus which houses our Food Incubation Center, Shared Commercial Kitchen Space, Shared Office Space, Mobile Grocery Market, and nonprofit Grocery Store. The goal of the Cookware Recovery Program operated by StarkFresh is to collect and redistribute gently used cookware at no cost to low-income Canton/Stark County residents, with an emphasis on those impacted by homelessness, incarceration, domestic violence, and other poverty situations. The SA VISTA member will coordinate donations and also coordinate distribution partners and volunteers to get the cookware to the community members in need. The SA Cookware Recovery & Rescue VISTA will work with community partners and StarkFresh staff to operate our Cookware Recovery program. Candidate should be a confident, self-starter with strong project coordination experience. VISTA can expect to have many opportunities to learn more about systematic racism and the lasting effects it continues to have on our food system. Service starts June 21 and ends Aug 29. Application deadline 5/18/2022.
