Non-profit working towards a sustainable food culture in Hull
Hull Food Partnership is part of the UK Sustainable Food City (SFP) network and works in collaboration with the city farm Rooted in Hull.
By driving system change and working with the many local delivery projects already in place, Hull Food Partnership will embed & develop a recognised strategic and collaborative approach to good food governance and action in the city.
Funding has been awarded to Hull Food Partnership by RB (Reckitt Benckiser) to create a Food Inequality Officer post in Hull with the aim of creating a joined-up approach to tackling food poverty, food insecurity and the wider financial exclusion issues that lead to food poverty across the city and start to consider realistic and working solutions.
There is a fundamental need to support well-being and health for everyone. It is critically important that everyone is able to access affordable healthy food appropriate for their cultural, religious and dietary needs on a daily basis.
This post will be 30 hours per week, worked flexibly, initially for a fixed term of 17 months but may be extended subject to funding. Occasional evening and weekend work will be required, for which time off in lieu will be granted. A city centre office base is provided, though the role will also allow for some level of home working by agreement and will require travel across the city to different locations for stakeholder engagement.
The main role of the Food Inequality Officer will be to build on and strengthen past work through the development of the Hull Food Inequality Alliance, actively engaging with wide range of stakeholders and facilitating collaboration to develop a city-wide strategic action plan to tackle food poverty in Hull that also addresses the financial exclusion and financial insecurity issues that contribute to food poverty.
We are seeking a committed self-starter who is able to bring their knowledge of the intersecting issues that people facing food poverty experience, and can mobilise positive change to tackle this.
