ShareCorps-OH Assoc of Foodbanks-Critical Response Associate
The Ohio Association of Foodbanks provides emergency food and other resources to Ohio's 12 Feeding America foodbanks and their 3,600 partner agencies serving hungry people in all 88 counties in Ohio. Unfortunately, the COVID-19 pandemic has made an already serious food security crisis much worse, creating record unemployment levels, lost wages, missing school meals, and an ongoing recession. Our network is busy implementing new ways to secure and distribute more food effectively, raise funds to support our mission virtually, support families suffering from food and economic insecurity creatively, recruit and welcome volunteers back to our facility safely, document and communicate about the impact of the pandemic on local families powerfully, and build our overall capacity to meet the increased needs of our neighbors. As a member serving with us, you will take on a convening role for a statewide group of anti-hunger service heroes, all working on different areas of high need at Ohio's foodbanks, all united by a common calling to make a difference in this historic era. Launch the next phase of your career and join our hunger fighting team!
