Part-time position, June through November – to coordinate gleaning in the Stafford, King George, Westmoreland, Essex, Richmond, Northumberland, Lancaster, and Middlesex Counties of Virginia for the Society of St. Andrew. This will involve all groups willing to glean in this area, along with all activities and events for SoSA. Gleaning is picking leftover fruit and vegetables after the farmer has harvested the fields.
North Carolina Regional Office
The Northeastern NC Area Gleaning Coordinator will further the mission of SoSA in a 5-county region based around Rocky Mount. This position is supported through the NC Regional office in Durham and assumes responsibilities for various aspects of SoSA’s ministry in the local area to include:
• Maintaining relationships with current donor farmers, volunteer groups, and receiving agencies
• Recruiting farmers to allow gleaning of their produce and volunteers to participate in gleaning events
• Speaking to local groups and churches about the Gleaning Network and SoSA as needed
• Maintaining detailed records and reporting to the regional office on a regular basis
The Gleaning Coordinator should be a highly motivated individual with excellent organizational and communication skills. Farmers, Volunteers, and Supervisors all expect to have a response to their questions within the same day. Since this position is established away from the regional office, Gleaning Coordinators need to be “self-starters” in developing and carrying out program needs and objectives. Some physical labor when leading gleaning events can be expected. Travel throughout the Local Gleaning Network area should also be expected and access to a vehicle is required – employee will be reimbursed for mileage. This is a year-round position, averaging 15 hours a week (less time is needed in the winter months, but more is needed during the harvest season) and the salary is $600/month. Ideal candidate would live near Rocky Mount but candidates living in 5-county area will be considered (Edgecombe, Halifax, Martin, Nash, and Wilson Counties).
To apply, please submit a cover letter and a resume by email to Michael Binger, Regional Director – Carolinas.
