*The Real Food Challenge , a national student
network and campaign for just and sustainable food, is looking for an
energetic person committed to student empowerment, food, and justice to

Coordinator for
a minimum 2-year commitment*.

As one of RFC's three full-time staff members, the *National Programs
Coordinator * is
responsible for strategic campaign planning, student organizing,
coordinating administrative tasks, and overseeing the Real Food Calculator

This is an INCREDIBLE opportunity to deeply engage with RFC and the youth
food movement in general. *We welcome applications from anyone interested,
especially young people with experience in organizing around food, justice,
sustainability, or related fields.*

The *National Programs
Coordinator* is
a full-time position with a competitive non-profit salary, a comprehensive
benefits package, and flexible vacation.

If you have any questions, feel free to call or email Devon Ahearn at (617)
442-1322, ext. 54 or devon@realfoodchallenge.org).


*Job Description*

*Program Description*
*The Real Food Challenge (RFC) is a national campaign that recruits, trains,
and supports student leaders working to get their schools to purchase more
just and sustainable food.* Our flagship goal is to redirect $1 billion of
college and university food purchases to “real” food—food that’s fair,
ecologically sound, humane, and local and community-based—over the next 10
years. We work toward this goal, and the broader goal of supporting a
vibrant student food movement, by uniting college students through on-campus
organizing, leadership training institutes, and regional summits.

*2011 is a really exciting year for RFC*. The number of students and schools
developing powerful sustainable food projects has grown exponentially since
our launch in 2008. To better support each other, we are unrolling the
Leaders Program*, which will provide campus-based student leaders resources,
training, and support to help them carry out successful campaigns for real
food. At the same time, we are planning to publicly release the *Real Food
Calculator*, a tool we developed to help students assess their schools’ real
food purchases and set a new standard for transparency in the food industry.

In the next year, RFC will transition organizationally. Currently, RFC is a
program of The Food Project, a non-profit organization in Boston that
fosters social and personal change through youth leadership and sustainable
agriculture. In July, The Real Food Challenge will shift from being housed
at The Food Project to working under the umbrella of Live Real, an emerging
organization that works to change the food system by organizing communities
and youth that are most negatively impacted by our current food system. We
will retain a close relationship with The Food Project.

*Given this expansion and transition, we’re seeking a talented individual to
become one of three national staff and play a critical role in strategic
planning for the campaign, managing administrative work, further developing
and overseeing the Real Food Calculator, and creating more robust
