Feeding Texas - Community Capacity Corps FTHQ [Austin, TX]
 
 
 
Feeding Texas leads a unified effort for a hunger-free Texas. We assist hungry Texans through a statewide network of twenty-one food banks, lead the public discussion on hunger in Texas, and strengthen the anti-hunger movement through collaboration and capacity-building. The Community Capacity Corps is a creative and motivated team focused on alleviating the upstream, economic causes of hunger as well as the downstream effects of hunger on health. VISTAs build non-traditional partnerships to increase community access to new services, and strategically incorporate the voices of hungry Texans into the public conversation on hunger through StoryBank Texas and community feedback loop projects. With ample coaching and personal development opportunities, our corps offers emerging non-profit professionals a way to gain a level of experience above other entry-level positions. Collaborate with other VISTAs and non-profit professionals in a variety of positions, while building a foundation for a meaningful career.

Member Duties : As the Racial Equity VISTA in our Feeding Texas office you will support and document our organization's journey of adopting a racial equity framework and cultivating an anti-racist culture. From this information, you will create a case study toolkit the rest of the network can utilize to begin or strengthen their integrated approach to pursuing racial equity in food justice. The VISTA will work across departments and teams to research, document, measure, and create recommendations and/or processes that support adoption of racial equity framework and anti-racist culture. All Community Capacity Corps VISTAs engage community members through one-on-one interviews in order to gather stories for a statewide StoryBank with a focus on learning about the authentic lives of people experiencing food insecurity, and presenting the truth of hunger in our community to a public audience. Remote work is possible for this position.
