Beyond Hunger - Food Services Specialist
 
 
 
Food insecurity and poor nutrition go hand in hand. For those struggling with hunger, food choices are often prioritized based on an item’s cost, not its nutritional value. Thus, those who suffer from food insecurity are less likely to eat fruits and vegetables, less likely to get the calcium and protein they need, and more likely to have diets high in sugar and fat. In providing emergency hunger relief, Beyond Hunger aims to deliver the very items our participants need most: nutrient-dense and protein-rich foods. The Food Services Specialist is critical to the success of that goal by enlisting and managing community involvement in the procurement of these foods— including but not limited to retail vendors, congregations, civic groups, volunteers, and individual gardeners. The Food Services Specialist assists with program assessment by tracking the amount and nutritional content of food procured. To enhance consistent client access to nutritious food, the Food Services Specialist manages the volunteers who conduct food rescues, drives, deliveries, and distributions. By combining outreach and volunteer management, the Food Services Specialist helps volunteers be a part of the outreach process, thus further integrating volunteers into the service model.
