Food For All envisions communities where all people have access to nutritious, safe, and culturally appropriate foods that are produced in ways that are environmentally sound, socially just, and available through local non-emergency sources. The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP, formerly known as food stamps) is the largest and most effective of our nation’s public anti-hunger programs. The receipt of SNAP for those eligible individuals and families contributes to improved nutrition and reduces the financial strain of trying to pay for other household expenses on a limited budget.

To apply, please send a cover letter and resume.
