412 Food Rescue is a direct response to the disconnect between the fact that we waste 40% of our food while 1 in 8 goes hungry. Utilizing technology (Food Rescue Hero) and civic engagement, 412 Food Rescue collects surplus food that might otherwise be thrown away and delivers it immediately to organizations that serve those who are food insecure. 412 Food Rescue relies on our community of partners, financial supporters, and volunteers to pursue our mission of ending food waste and hunger throughout the region.
To automate the time consuming and variable coordination of food recovery, 412 Food Rescue created the Food Rescue Hero software that we license to users throughout the USA and Canada. This unique software, with mobile functionality, enables scalable impact on food waste, food insecurity and climate change. Reporting to the Board of Directors and acting as the highest-ranking employee, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) will have overall strategic and operational responsibility for staff, product and services, financial health, sustainability, and execution of mission.
The goals of this position are to:
Provide strategic vision, leadership and growth for staff within the direction set by the Board
Define key performance indicators (KPIs); in conjunction with board and other stakeholders, define strategic priorities.
Create and manage annual organizational budget.
Attract, develop and lead a team of engaged employees capable of delivering an excellent experience for our partners.
Define and execute strategic growth to maximize operational impact, earned revenue and brand reputation.
Highly qualified nonprofit leaders with experience in food distribution, technology, or operations are encouraged to submit their resume, letter of interest, and references to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
412 Food Rescue is a direct response to the disconnect between the fact that we waste 40% of our food while 1 in 6 go hungry. Through a network of dedicated volunteers, 412 Food Rescue collects surplus food that might otherwise be thrown away and delivers it immediately to organizations that serve those who are food insecure. These healthy food donations go to hungry people in shelters, schools, housing projects, and other programs and kitchens who serve or distribute food to those in need. Through our technology, 412 Food Rescue facilitates rapid response that helps bridge the gap between supply and demand. Piloting in Allegheny County and expanding further into Southwestern PA, 412 Food Rescue aims to expand its model across urban centers nationally.
