Director position for Chattanooga Area Local Food Hub
Location: Chattanooga, Tennessee, U.S.A.
The Chattanooga Area Food Bank (CAFB) is seeking an individual with a passion for sustainable agriculture and a strong background working in dynamic and entrepreneurial environments with management responsibilities to lead our new food hub subsidiary. He or she should have experience related to food, agriculture or produce operations. An understanding of non-profit organizations would be helpful but is not required.
Principal Purpose: The Director will be involved in the planning and start-up of the project, including developing operations, facility planning, developing and executing a marketing strategy, procurement, staffing, and the launch of the center, which is planned for no later than spring of 2014. The start-up operation will function as a subsidiary of an established non-profit organization with more than 30 years of experience in the region working with local leaders and communities. This new distribution center will operate independently from the parent organization with a segregated facility, staff, budget, etc. and will be branded with its own identity. The Director will report to the parent nonprofit’s President. Although the project will be a nonprofit operation that will be capitalized with philanthropic support, it is intended to function toward sustainability with revenues from fees and services, while not losing sight of the social mission of supporting local agriculture and providing healthy food for sale and preparation throughout the Chattanooga area.
