Position Title: Food Shift Development Associate/Manager (based on experience)*

Status: Non-exempt, Regular, Salaried 

Pay Rate: Commensurate with experience ($20,500 to $25,000 for half time). Bonuses may be considered

Hours: 20 hours/week (Half time)

Benefits: Regular EII Employee, pro-rated vacation/sick hours accrual

Location: 677 W Ranger Ave Alameda, CA, or remote as appropriate

Reports to: Food Shift Executive Director

*This position can be combined with the Food Shift Communications Associate/Manager (or other half- or part-time positions and responsibilities at Food Shift) to craft a role that amplifies your skills and interests. 

About Food Shift Food Shift is a non-profit social enterprise based in Alameda, CA and serving the broader Bay Area. We are developing and implementing collaborative models to reduce food waste, nourish our neighbors, and provide jobs. Food Shift takes care to examine and adopt the best, most relevant role for us to play in our community. Food Shift’s primary programs are The Food Shift Kitchen, a unique social enterprise that transforms wasted food into nourishing meals and job opportunities, and Operation Together, our food hub that builds food security in our local food ecosystem. In The Food Shift Kitchen, trainees who are overcoming employment discrimination assist with Food Shift operations, recovering surplus and cosmetically imperfect produce that would otherwise be wasted and transforming the wasted food into nutritious meals and food products that are distributed as food assistance and sold to local businesses to generate revenue for the program. In light of the pandemic, we established our COVID-19 relief initiative, Operation Together, to supply food to frontline food assistance organizations, ensuring that all of us in our community can access the delicious, nourishing food we need to live well. We strongly encourage applications from BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and people of color) candidates and folks with lived experience of the issues our constituents navigate, including but not limited to food insecurity, houselessness, incarceration, and poverty. We are fiscally sponsored by Earth Island Institute (EII), and therefore, EII is the employer for all Food Shift staff. [Updated 2021-05-05]

Who we are

We are a small staff but a big team, bringing interns, volunteers, executives-in-residence, and advisors together at our table. Food Shifters connect to food through a range of experiences as chefs, servers, food writers, artists, farmers, home cooks, and eaters. Our flat organizational structure knits together our experiences and skills to strengthen the organization, and our cross-trained staff continually adjust to support one another. While our team members come from many backgrounds, we unite around our shared JEDI (justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion) values, which inform everything we do.

That’s why we seek a “cultural knit” rather than a “cultural fit” in our hiring process. While “fit” suggests a search for a predefined candidate, a set puzzle piece that fits into the organizational jigsaw puzzle, we, instead, look for a cultural knit, which invites our new team members to weave their unique experiences and skills into our fabric. By weaving a cultural knit, our team gains the resilience to tackle the root causes of food insecurity and climate change. We strive to build capacity in each other and the team so we can build a more resilient food system with our community. We believe solutions must be for the people, by the people, and with the people. 

Who we are looking for

The Development Associate/Manager is responsible for championing our fundraising and business development efforts (Associate or Manager title dependent on experience). You will report to the Executive Director and work closely with staff, partners, and volunteers to execute key fundraising and business development activities that support the organization’s sustainability and connections in the community. We view fundraising and business development as an integral part of our operation, and expect any fundraising activities to reflect the JEDI values of Food Shift. As such, we take a holistic view when evaluating candidates, who can apply their professional skills to different aspects of our operation, and apply their operational experience back into fundraising and business development. We believe deep, first-hand experience with our operation will provide stronger community-centric fundraising. We are seeking qualified candidates who identify with the descriptions below, with experiences and skills that will nourish an innovative start-up organization and contribute to our growing impact.



  • Inspired: Strong commitment to Food Shift’s mission and vision 


  • Detailed: Outstanding attention to detail and organizational skills; strong follow through and timely task completion 


  • Self-Starter: Ability to complete work with minimal supervision and meet deadlines; take initiative to make improvements to systems and processes wherever possible


  • Nimble: Ability to think critically and adapt in a flexible environment; proactive work ethic and ability to anticipate needs, prioritize, and take appropriate actions


  • Collaborative: Values working as a team, relationships, and giving and receiving honest feedback via nonviolent communication 


  • Words to Action: Donor outreach and grant-writing or equivalent experience; excellent oral and written communication skills with the ability to communicate our mission and impact to donors and the community


  • Technologically Skilled: Proficiency in Google Suite, Microsoft Suite; Salesforce and Canva design skills a plus 

 

You will be expected to 


  • Coordinate with funders to ensure all compliance and reporting requirements are met

  • Support with grant research, tracking, drafting, and reporting 

  • Strategize and provide first drafts on fundraising plans, grant applications, and other fundraising opportunities 

  • Support online fundraising and donor outreach

  • Provide back-up and support to Director and staff, as needed; take on other duties as assigned to address the changing needs of a small organization with a small staff (e.g., to be able to fill in for another staff member)

  • Represent Food Shift at events where appropriate 

  • Collaborate with Executive Director and Culinary Director to propose and develop revenue-generating programs

We recognize that excellence and potential are expressed differently for different people.

California magazine is seeking part-time interns to work on our award-winning quarterly print publication and general interest website starting in June 2021. Are you enthusiastic about getting coffee?! Running errands?! Doing senseless busy work for no pay that won’t help your career in the future?!

That’s great! But do it on your own time, because it won’t happen when you’re a California magazine intern.

Some might say we have a revolutionary perspective that an internship shouldn’t be a waste of time, that interns should do work that excites them, and that they should leave with clips and experience that will set them up for a career in journalism. And we’d like to think it works! Some of our past interns have gone on to write for such publications as the New York Times, L.A. Times, Mother Jones, Buzzfeed, Wired.com, and Nature.

That could be you someday. We want it to be you someday. 

California is an editorially independent general interest mag that covers the news, issues, discoveries, and people of the University of California, Berkeley. The print magazine is published four times a year with a readership of 95,000, and the website posts fresh news every week, including monthly episodes of our new podcast, The Edge.

As an intern, it’ll be your job to stay true to this mission whilst hunting down stories, juggling hectic deadlines, and otherwise writing your journalism-loving heart out!

WHAT YOU’LL DO:


  • Pitch, research and write stories for both the print and online mag

  • Interview sources, ask tough questions, be a bonafide professional reporter

  • Assist with research, scripting, and production of our podcast, The Edge

  • Go out into the field to find stories worth writing about

  • Post finished pieces to the website using Drupal CMS

  • Transcribe interviews

  • Track down images/artwork and obtain permissions for them (and, if you’ve got the skills, shoot photos and make some artwork yourself)

  • Fact-check stories (call sources, track down documents, be ruthless in your pursuit of truth)

  • Edit and proof pages (sharpen those copy-editing skills)

  • Write headlines and story descriptions for print and online

  • Post stories to social media with catchy subtitles to pull readers in

  • Attend weekly editorial meetings to pitch stories and shoot the breeze with your new favorite editors

  • Learn writing fundamentals, tips and tricks of the trade from CALIFORNIA mag’s finest

  • Have fun!

QUALIFICATIONS: 


  • A sense of humor: We take our journalism very seriously, but usually not ourselves. It’s wisecracks galore up in the California mag office. We joke. We make puns. We quip it—and quip it good. Come prepared to banter with the best of ‘em!

  • Proven ability to report and write things accurately, smartly, and concisely

  • Basic knowledge of HTML

  • Some social media knowhow (working knowledge of Facebook, Twitter, Instagram)

  • Basic photo editing skills (knowledge of Adobe Photoshop is a plus)

  • The talent to think critically and listen effectively

  • The ability to work cooperatively and independently (we’re here to guide you, but we also like to let our interns learn some things on the fly, and on their own)

  • A burning desire to master the magical art of journalism! 

The internship is part-time (~20hrs/week) and lasts three months with a monthly stipend of $530. If applicable (meaning that we think you do a great job and you like it here) there’s a possibility for the internship to be extended for another three months. If all of this sounds like your kind of thing…

APPLY: But no phone calls, please! Send your resume, cover letter, and three non-academic writing samples by email to californiamag@alumni.berkeley.edu with “editorial intern” in the subject. The samples don’t need to be published, but we ask that at least one of them demonstrate journalistic ability (research and reporting skills).

HEAL is committed to achieving food and farm systems that are healthy for our families, accessible and affordable for all communities, and fair to the hard-working people who grow, distribute, prepare, and serve our food — while protecting the air, water, and land we all depend on.
