Real Food Generation (“RFG”) harnesses the power of youth and universities to create an equitable and sustainable food system. After winning dozens of campaigns nationally that have resulted in $80 million committed to our definition of “Real Food” annually, we have proven that student organizing can drive substantial change in the food chain in every region of the country at a wide variety of schools. Building off of our successes, RFG launched two new initiatives in 2018. The Real Meals Campaign is an unprecedented coalition of national organizations representing farmers, ranchers, fishermen, and environmentalists working to change the food service management industry. Uprooted & Rising is a movement to end college and university support for Big Food and white supremacy in the food system and to direct the energy of our generation toward food sovereignty.
Real Food Generation is a fiscally-sponsored project of TSNE (www.tsne.org). For more information see www.realfoodgen.org.
The Grassroots Communications and Fundraising Coordinator will: 1) expand our grassroots fundraising program, building a base of grassroots financial support for Uprooted & Rising and 2) develop and implement communications and digital strategy for RFG, and 3) boost local campaign engagement and support. This individual will be expected to take initiative, problem-solve on the fly and work with a diverse, and often geographically dispersed team.
