Community Food Advocates’ Mission:
To ensure all New Yorkers have access to healthy, affordable, culturally appropriate foods through equity-centered, high-impact public policy. We accomplish this through coalition building and organizing, backed by strong policy and budget analysis.
Community Food Advocates (CFA) is actively strengthening our organization’s anti-racist commitments. We are building a team that shares this organizational identity and represents racial diversity and inclusion. Diversity includes race and gender identity, age, disability status, sexual orientation, religion, country of origin, and other aspects of a person’s identity.
CFA believes in the strength of collective power. The best ideas come from a team with a wide range of backgrounds and experiences to solve problems and advance work through a variety of perspectives that maximize our impact. We dedicate space for anti-racist learning, conversations, and furthering initiatives that enrich our organization.
All CFA employees are responsible for creating an environment of inclusion and empowering everyone to be able to do their best work.
Women, people of color, members of impacted communities are strongly encouraged to apply.
