Feeding Texas Summer Associate VISTA (Multiple Sites)
Feeding Texas leads a unified effort for a hunger-free Texas. We assist hungry Texans through a statewide network of twenty-one food banks, lead the public discussion on hunger in Texas, and strengthen the anti-hunger movement through collaboration and capacity-building. Summer Associate VISTAs will work on the front lines in the fight against hunger by supporting innovative programs focused on alleviating the upstream causes and downstream effects of food insecurity. This work will ultimately strengthen the food banks' capacity to provide life-changing programs for Texas communities experiencing the compounding effects of COVID-19 and economic insecurity.
Member Duties : Projects may involve free summer feeding programs for children and seniors, farm and garden programs, nutrition education classes, research and data management, marketing, development and communications, workforce initiatives, and more. Currently recruiting for 25 positions in Houston, Lubbock, Tyler, San Antonio, New Braunfels, Conroe, and Austin. We are also recruiting for two start dates of either May 31st - August 6th or June 7th - August 13th. Contact Feeding Texas to learn more!
