Food Recovery Assistant: The Del Norte and Tribal Lands Community Food Council (DNATL CFC) is seeking a collaborative and enthusiastic Food Recovery Assistant who will support the new and ambitious Food Rescue Program in DNATL as outlined in our Food Waste Prevention and Rescue Grant agreement with CalRecycle. The funding for this position is a result of California greenhouse gas cap and trade reduction efforts. An estimated 3.9 million pounds of food is thrown into the landfill for Del Norte County every year. In the next nine months, the aim of this project is to continue toward our goal of rescuing 400,000 pounds of that waste from reaching the landfill, and instead repurposing and redistributing it to people that need it. This is an exciting opportunity to work as a team member in solidifying the first-ever food rescue program in Del Norte while decreasing food waste, greenhouse gas emissions (methane), and food insecurity in one of California’s most beautiful, isolated, and socioeconomically disadvantaged regions. This is a temporary position funded through April 1, 2021. Compensation: $16 to $18 an hour (based on experience), plus paid holiday/sick time.
