Food Access Coordinator: NOFA-NH's Farm Share Program
The Northeast Organic Farming Association of New Hampshire (NOFA-NH) is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting organic, regenerative, ecologically sound farming, gardening, eating, and land care practices for healthy communities. We help people build local, just, and sustainable food systems. Located in Concord, New Hampshire and operating statewide, we are one of the seven state chapters of NOFA established in 1971. Today, our core programs focus on education, food access, farmer services, and advocacy. NOFA-NH’s Farm Share Program, established in 2017, makes local, certified organic food accessible to all in the community. This program matches community members in need with low-cost organic farm shares, providing a season’s worth of produce to households with limited incomes. The program especially benefits children, families, and seniors by covering 75% of the cost of 3 – 6 months of local, farm fresh food. NOFA-NH raises money each year to help fund every farm share distributed through the program. We recruit and work with farmers, program participants, and donors on an annual basis. To further food security in New Hampshire, we collaborate with organizations across the state on food access initiatives, supporting one another in our shared goals of nourishing the community. The Food Access Coordinator will help grow NOFA-NH’s Farm Share Program by increasing and improving outreach to participants, expanding and strengthening farm and community partnerships, developing program materials, and assisting with program fundraising. At the conclusion of their year of service, the Food Access Coordinator will develop the skills to manage a community driven food access program. By developing program materials, protocols, and deepening relationships with a diverse group of stakeholders they will build a strong foundation for the sustainable expansion of the Farm Share Program both within the community and into future years.
