If you envision a food system that is local, responsive to local customers, equitable, and sustainable, Nebraska Children and Families Foundation has a position that will enable you to take meaningful action toward bringing that food system into being.
The Local Food Purchase Assistance Cooperative Agreement Program (LFPA) is a federal investment designed to increase market access for socially disadvantaged farmers & producers and provide food to underserved communities experiencing high levels of food insecurity. Nebraska Children and Families Foundation, the sub-awardee for LFPA in Nebraska, seeks an Director to manage the program’s implementation. This position will lead the efforts to expand economic opportunities for socially disadvantaged farmers & producers while providing access to fresh, local, and healthy food in underserved communities across the state.

This position is ideal for the socially-minded entrepreneurial type who enjoys working with a broad range of stakeholders at a mission-driven foundation.
