Location: Remote, North Carolina
About the Organization: OMD is a movement, community and campaign whose goal is to support people just like you to change their relationship with food by swapping at least meal a day with something plant-based. The overarching campaign objective is to reduce meat and dairy consumption and increase access, production and consumption of plant-based foods globally, reducing the detrimental environmental, social and health impacts of corporate animal agriculture. To complement the movement, One Meal a Day (OMD) is launching a pilot campaign program in North Carolina – ground zero for climate and food justice. The aim is to deepen engagement and impact in diverse communities to get more plant-based food served in K-12 schools and restaurants.
About the Position: The OMD Field Organizer will work with the OMD Team to adapt our existing North Carolina campaign plan based on his/her skills and knowledge of the community and execute plans accordingly. Working closely with our Campaign Manager and Communications & Social Media Manager, the OMD Field Organizer will manage the pilot program in the Triangle area of North Carolina. Through coalition and base building, direct engagement with schools and restaurants, and identifying storytelling opportunities in communities impacted by factory farming and food deserts, the One Meal a Day organizer will build a local movement to increase access to healthy, plant-based food, being mindful of the social and economic barriers many communities face.
Special Requirements/Qualifications: The ideal candidate is a North Carolina native, passionate about building a healthy, equitable, climate-friendly food system, and representative of the diverse communities OMD is looking to reach. We’re seeking someone with a strong network of relationships on the ground, who is excited to work with people from all backgrounds and a variety of stakeholder groups. We’re also looking for someone who is self-directed, works well independently, is an excellent and proactive communicator, and skilled with remote communication tools.
Estimated Salary: $45,000-$58,000, commensurate with experience, plus health care benefits, cell phone reimbursement and monthly stipend for office space if needed.
