LC Valley Coordinator – Help outgrow hunger in the Lewis-Clark Valley

Are you actively engaged in the Lewiston & Clarkston communities? Do you have an interest in food security or food systems? Want a job that spends time in the sun?

Help Backyard Harvest develop and maintain relationships with key stakeholders in the LC Valley and mobilize volunteers for harvesting local produce that would otherwise go to waste.

About Us:
Backyard Harvest (BYH) is a Moscow-based non-profit organization that has been serving communities across the Palouse and Lewis-Clark Valley for 10 years. We believe that everyone deserves access to fresh, healthy food. We work to outgrow hunger by connecting community members with excess local produce from landowners and farmers in the area. Not only do we connect those in need with fresh food, we also provide education and support to cook and grow food for themselves.

The Position:
We are looking for an outgoing coordinator and community representative to work between 15-20 hours per week during the peak harvest season (~July-September) with potential for additional opportunities over the winter.
• Excellent organizational and communication skills are essential
• You will work closely with the Lewis Clark State College Learning Garden and food distribution sites
• You will also lead volunteers, meet distribution site recipients, and help get the word out about Backyard Harvest and our programs

The Location:
Work will be throughout Asotin and Nez Perce counties with a monthly staff meeting in Moscow. Backyard Harvest has a truck it will provide for your use and any personal mileage will be reimbursed. The ideal candidate will be a resident of either Lewiston or Clarkston.

Why Should You Apply?
• A great opportunity to work with and support your community, especially those in need
• Learning about the local food system and the bounty of our region
• Being part of a passionate and energized team
• Free fruit and vegetables throughout the season

• Location: Lewiston, Lewiston, Idaho
