        <![endif]-->Anti-Hunger and Opportunity Corps - VISTA members

         

        Positions Available

        The Food Research and Action Center (FRAC) has openings for anti-hunger VISTA members in its two state-based initiatives headquartered in Baltimore, Maryland; and Richmond, Virginia to help build capacity for the federal nutrition programs in those states.  These positions are one-year AmeriCorps/Vista placements with FRAC’s Maryland and Virginia programs.

         

        Organizational Background

        The Food Research and Action Center is the leading national nonprofit organization working to improve public policies and public-private partnerships to eradicate hunger and undernutrition in the United States. FRAC works in partnership with hundreds of national, state and local nonprofit organizations, public agencies, corporations and labor organizations to address hunger, food insecurity, and their root cause, poverty.

         

        Maryland Hunger Solutions (MDHS) and Virginia Hunger Solutions (VHS) are FRAC initiatives working to create local hunger-free communities and to improve the nutrition, health, economic security and well-being of low-income residents of these communities.  VHS is a joint project with the Virginia Poverty Law Center (VPL).

         

        Responsibilities

        The full-year VISTA members will support FRAC’s work in Maryland and Virginia to build capacity to expand access to the federal Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP).  The members will help recruit and train volunteers to assist in SNAP outreach.  They will help identify and engage community partners, faith-based organizations and local agencies to expand the number of organizations providing SNAP application assistance and will coordinate with partner organizations to develop innovative and targeted plans to reach special communities of interest (non-English speakers, seniors, rural populations and low-income workers).  They will also create and update SNAP toolkit resources and investigate ways to better inform recipients of the SNAP Employment and Training Program. VISTA members may also work with farmers’ markets to improve and expand the use of EBT at the markets and to provide outreach to ensure that recipients are aware that growing numbers of markets accept SNAP benefits.

         

        Skills and Qualifications

        ·         Bachelor’s degree; with preference for a degree in a field related to anti-hunger / social justice.

        ·         Good oral and written communications skills. Ability to present and speak in public on behalf of the organization.

        ·         Detail-oriented planning and implementation skills.

        ·         Willingness to work varied hours.

        ·         Good organizational skills.

        ·         Self-starter; ability to work independently.

        ·         Excellent interpersonal skills; team orientation.

        ·         Evidence of commitment to social justice; experience with SNAP/food stamp program a plus.

        ·         Experience with Microsoft Office Suite products with ability to use Excel for data collection.

        ·         Conversant in Spanish, a plus.

        ·         Ability to travel around the state for meetings and events. (Must have own transportation; mileage will be reimbursed.)

         

        Compensation and Benefits

        Compensation and benefits are provided by the AmeriCorps program (see http://www.nationalservice.gov/programs/americorps).  FRAC reimburses the VISTA member for reasonable commuting expenses to and from its offices, as well as any work-related travel expenses.
