Massachusetts Food Systems Collaborative

The MA Food System Collaborative was established in 2016 to promote, monitor, and facilitate implementation of the MA Local Food Action Plan. The Plan is a comprehensive set of recommendations toward a sustainable, equitable food system for the Commonwealth. The Collaborative works to encourage progress toward the goals of the Plan through education, networking, and advocacy. Learn more about the Collaborative at www.mafoodsystem.org.

A priority of the Collaborative’s first several years has been supporting the Healthy Incentives Program (HIP), a state-run program which doubles SNAP recipients’ purchases of fresh, healthy produce directly from farmers, thus improving health outcomes for traditionally underserved communities, and helping to sustain local farms. The Collaborative coordinates the Campaign for HIP Financing, which has successfully led to the Commonwealth of Massachusetts investing $7.5 million in the program in the past two years.

Position description:

The Organizer will work with community-based organizations to educate them and their memberships about HIP and the need to sustain the program, engage them in the campaign, and build their capacity to effectively do so. The result will be a grassroots base of advocates who understand the value of the program and have the tools they need to take action to support it when needed.

Job functions:

  • Develop and manage campaign plan
  • Identify and recruit organizations and communities to participate in the campaign.
  • Build the capacity of partner organizations to advocate effectively.
  • In support of these activities:
  • develop written and online materials to engage and support partners;
  • plan and coordinate meetings, trainings, and events; and
  • develop and implement tools (databases, listservs, webinars, etc.) to facilitate communication.
  • Attend regular project and governance meetings, in person and on the phone.
  • Other duties, as needed.

Qualifications:

  • 3-5 years work experience in policy, advocacy, or campaign organizing setting.

With active collaborations focusing on forecasting influenza in the US and dengue fever in Thailand, the Reich Lab is currently leading the FluSightNetwork effort to create and disseminate ensemble forecasts for the US Influenza season in 20I7/2018.
