Fresh Food Connect® (“FFC”) is seeking a self-motivated, collaborative, and creative Program Manager to re-energize and accelerate our impact in the Denver metro area by building awareness among the local gardening community. In collaboration with the FFC team and our Denver food access partners (“Operators”), the Denver Program Manager will develop and execute initiatives to recruit and engage local home and community gardeners to donate their produce to support community hunger relief. This position will build and implement a community engagement plan including on-the-ground community organizing and outreach, as well as traditional marketing and advertising, including earned media, in partnership with FFC’s Marketing Director. The ideal candidate will have experience across these areas, along with a passion for gardening and food systems.
The Denver Program Manager role is the center of a high-profile, strategic initiative for Fresh Food Connect. We are investing to develop and test new ideas and tools in the Denver area, where we already have a strong foundation, with an expectation that successful programs will be implemented nationally. An important part of this role will be capturing and disseminating learnings to the national network of Operators to extend our impact in other cities and states.
