Fellowship – Move For Hunger (Red Bank)

Position Summary

DescriptionMove For Hunger is a non-profit organization that has created a sustainable way for the relocation industry to reduce food waste and fight hunger. In addition to collecting food from people who are moving to new homes, Move For Hunger helps companies and individuals across the United States and Canada organize successful food drives. Since 2009, Move For Hunger’s national network has grown to include more than 1,000 relocation companies, which have delivered more than 20 million pounds of food to food banks and pantries nationwide.ObjectiveMove For Hunger’s mission is to mobilize the relocation industry to provide meals to the more than 40 million Americans who face hunger each and every day. Since 2009, our network of relocation professionals has delivered more than 15 million meals to food banks nationwide.While we are proud of everything we’ve accomplished over the last nine years, we know our work has only just begun. Donating food to our neighbors in need is incredibly important, but it is not a viable long-term solution. Hunger is a symptom of the larger problems of poverty and inequality. If our goal is truly to “end hunger,” then we need to reduce the need for the emergency assistance that food banks and pantries provide in the first place.Move For Hunger was born in Neptune and our office is now located in Red Bank. There are people struggling to put food on the table in every community in the United States, and ours is no exception. As we continue to evolve as an organization, we know that we must make a greater commitment to addressing the root causes of hunger — and that commitment has to start at home.The Move For Hunger Fellowship Program seeks to provide a low-income student with an opportunity to gain work experience with a nationally recognized non-profit. We know there are highly qualified candidates in our community who do not even apply for our traditional internship program because they would not be able to accept an unpaid position. Thanks to generous grants, we will be able to compensate our Fellow for a total of 24 weeks ($12.50 per hour with a 20-hour per-week time commitment).We view this fellowship, first and foremost, as an investment in our community. It is also, however, an investment in the future of the anti-hunger movement as a whole. It is important to give people who are underprivileged or underrepresented a chance to lend their voice to the conversation. Move For Hunger would benefit greatly by having someone who could view our initiatives through the lens of their lived experiences. We believe this Fellowship will both empower and open doors for potential leaders.CurriculumMove For Hunger Fellows will have the opportunity to gain experience in every aspect of our organization. Fellows will spend 2 weeks rotating among our departments. After completing all 8 rotations, Fellows will spend the remaining 8 weeks working in the area(s) that interest them the most. We believe this model will provide the Fellows with a strong foundation in non-profit management, while also allowing them to continue to build the skills that will be critical in helping them pursue a career that they are passionate about.
