Organization: Food Forward, Inc - a 501 (c)(3) non-profit
Position: Facilities Coordinator
Location: North Hollywood, CA and in the field as needed
ORGANIZATION OVERVIEW: Food Forward fights hunger and prevents food waste by rescuing fresh surplus produce, connecting this abundance with people in need and inspiring others to do the same. Our produce is predominantly recovered in Los Angeles and Ventura Counties but reaches those in need in eight Southern California counties via distribution by hundreds of hunger relief agencies across virtually all social service sectors: homeless outreach, domestic violence shelters, street youth homes, veteran services, LGBT teen/adult/senior services, after-school programs, the mentally disabled, low-income college programs, and many more. With the volunteer-power of over 10,000 registered volunteers and a modest staff, we will help feed over 2 million Southern Californians in need this year alone. *See our core values posted below.
The Facilities Coordinator reports directly to the Finance and HR Director while coordinating aspects of day to day operations with each department. This person must be a team player, able to prioritize between multiple responsibilities and competing deadlines, and be open to learning a large variety of tasks. The individual will support a growing staff of 30+ with computer equipment and IT systems. Food Forward has three facilities: our North Hollywood headquarters, Ventura branch office, and the Produce Pit Stop in the city of Bell. The Facilities Coordinator’s core responsibility is warehouse management and office maintenance in our North Hollywood location while providing support for Ventura and Bell facilities as needed.
Safety is paramount at Food Forward. The Facilities Coordinator is responsible for the safety of our staff and associates. This includes maintaining our fleet of nine vehicles, repairing equipment, and implementing the Emergency Action Plan.
As the organization grows and changes, so too does this position. Ideal candidates need to be both passionate about food justice and comfortable with growth. The Facilities Coordinator works to support Food Forward as it continues its fight for food justice.
