Maryland Food Bank – Partnership Building and Recruitment
The Maryland Food Bank is looking for a VISTA to build a network of partnerships with youth organizations for the purpose of engaging the organizations in nutrition education. Responsibilities include identifying potential partners, reaching out to these partners, and arranging for groups to come out to our garden for hands-on nutrition education. This role has never existed before, and we encourage the VISTA to be creative, exploratory, and try out different approaches while figuring out what works best. Additional responsibilities include documenting approaches and, at the end of the period, creating a manual of recommended best practices. We can offer a good mix of support and autonomy, a workplace full of passionate people who want to nourish our hungry neighbors, and an opportunity to learn skills that will come in handy in a wide variety of future careers.

Member Duties : The VISTA who joins our team will contribute to the nutrition education offered specifically to youth, particularly in our new garden. In spring we will offer workshops that use hands-on gardening as a tool for getting youth excited about fruits and veggies. We have the curriculum, the garden space, and the momentum behind it, so now all we need is the kids! We are looking for an outgoing individual to reach out to youth organizations and start building real, lasting partnerships that go beyond just signing the organization up for a workshop. Our goal is to have a network of youth organizations that bring youth to the garden multiple times, offer feedback, are open to additional MFB programming, and will spread the word about what MFB has to offer. At the end of the VISTA’s time with us, we will be eager to learn from their experiences.
