[LincolnTalk] The Food Project's Director of Development and Communications job posting

pat

A few words about The Food Project.

The Food Project, a Lincoln based organization, has been providing teens with employment and leadership training opportunities since 1992. For the teens from Lincoln, other suburbs, and low income city neighborhoods, in Greater Boston and North Shore areas, this is their first job and a chance to do something important.  Each year the youth grow approximately 250,000 pounds of healthy food for shelters and soup kitchens, farmers markets in low-income neighborhoods, and Community Supported Agriculture programs. They also help residents in low income neighborhoods grow food for their families by constructing raised bed gardens. In the process they make lasting friendships across race and class, and have the opportunity to help create a sustainable local food system.

The Food Project's fields are on Baker Bridge Road and extend to Rte 126. Its office is in South Lincoln, on Lewis Street, adjacent to the Lincoln Station. The Director of Development and Communications works out of the Lincoln office.

So for those who are getting tired of commuting into Boston and want to make an impact, this might be just the thing!

Please feel free to share with others who might be interested.
Thanks,
Pat Gray
PS I was involved with The Food Project for its first 15 years and now am providing support to its new Executive Director, Anne Hayes.

Just to pile on-

This amazing organization has helped restore Lincoln fields while producing amazing food, and doing good works throughout the region.

And, for Lincoln, it also provides a very real opportunity for our own kids-to do hard work, side-by-side, with kids from all over, most from very different backgrounds than our Lincoln youth.
For my sons, it was transformational and set a life-course for my oldest.

So, join the team, and if not that, contribute generously, and think about encouraging your son or daughter to join a Dirt Crew next summer!
