Feeding Texas - Client Empowerment Corps [Multiple Sites]
 
 
 
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 Client Empowerment Corps is made up of 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 client access to new services, and strategically incorporate the voices of hungry Texans into the public conversation on hunger through the Storybanking Initiative and client 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 a Client Empowerment Corps VISTA you will work to continue to expand and strengthen the partnerships created in the first years of the program, or initiate brand new projects addressing service gaps. Partnerships may focus on programming and referrals for clients with diet related illnesses, increasing client access to nutrition services, working with healthcare providers to implement food insecurity screening in medical settings, workforce development initiatives and incentivizing financial education courses, and more. The VISTA will also engage clients 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. **Complete this survey to indicate sites of interest and be considered for an interview: https://forms.gle/a2yed4jszBFpjvYz9 **
