PED Role

We’re Hiring!

Project Executive Director (PED)

Community Food Navigator is a startup, fiscally sponsored, non-profit project that exists to support people, communities, and organizations to connect and collaborate based on their shared interest in local, accessible, and healthy food for all. The people doing the work will guide the development and use of resources and tools. It is a network-drive resource hub intended to support community-driven food system practitioners who set priorities and steward solutions based on their lived experiences.
An entrepreneurial and pragmatic risk-taker will thrive in this role and is needed to evolve the project and early-stage work to its next level. The Project Executive Director (PED) will need to be comfortable working in a role that can be both complex and demanding, balancing multiple priorities and projects simultaneously. The PED has an opportunity to make decisions, shape, drive and activate the strategies to advance this project and direct the execution of community-stewarded plans and programs in service to that mission. To ensure the project remains centered on the perspectives of Black, Brown, and Indigenous Contributors and allies in support of food equity and justice, the project convenes a Community Steward Ring, currently made up of 14 people representing 11 organizations.
