Groundwork is hiring! Passionate about 10 Cents a Meal?

Good afternoon,

Groundwork Center is seeking a Policy Specialist to carry out our 10 Cents a Meal for Michigan's Kids & Farms outreach and advocacy initiative. The ideal candidate will be passionate and knowledgeable about the value of getting locally grown food to children in school and early childcare settings; experienced in public policy advocacy, networking, and facilitation; and wake up every day thinking about how to embed 10 Cents a Meal and the value of investing in healthy, locally grown food for children in school and early child care into Michigan's identity. 10 Cents a Meal is a state of Michigan program that invests in healthy, locally grown fruits and vegetables for children in the places where they get up to two and even three meals a day. 

This position is full time, year round, and will report to Groundwork's Senior Policy Specialist. 

The Policy Specialist will be a visible, credible leader on policy issues who will manage 10 Cents a Meal outreach and advocacy activities; publicly advocate for policy positions; build relationships with community, school, farm, health, economy, food systems, and policy stakeholders and support them in outreach, education, and advocacy; and help develop new project ideas and relationships with donors and grantors. 

While Groundwork Center is located in northwest Michigan, consideration will be given to candidates who need to reside elsewhere in Michigan.

Note: The safety and well-being of our staff, contractors, and communities is our top priority. Therefore, travel responsibilities of this position have been paused and replaced with remote communications in response to Covid-19. These responsibilities will resume in-person once it is safe to do so.
