Looking For An Awesome Part Time Office Adminstator

By now you probably know what we’re about but just in case you don’t, we’re all about ending American food insecurity through direct transfer food rescue.  We just entered the 2013-2014 food rescue season where we have our sights set on rescuing 3,000,000 meals for hungry Americans.  (You can see more about that here)

We have a small but potent team but as you can see our vision for addressing this problem without a good reason for being is anything but small.  Our core team is made up of passionate, energetic people who are consumed  with delivering as much good food to those in need as possible.  Our team values simplicity, community, gratitude, creativity and “saying yes.”

If this sounds like you and you’d like to be a part of the food rescue revolution at a very integral level, Community Plates is for you.  Join us and be ready to share what you’ve learned, what you do best and who you are and then get ready to make a huge difference for your neighbors and people all over the country.
