Change Food is on the lookout for passionately motivated individuals who want to volunteer some of their time to a good cause.

We’re always on the lookout for help with grant writing and fundraising.

You can help out with one or two things, rather than take on a specific role. General duties might include:

  • Graphics creation (we use Canva – we can teach you in 5 minutes!)\

Additional Information

Please only apply if you are committed to creating change and are comfortable working on your own and in small teams. You must have solid experience working online – internet research, Google Drive apps, responding to emails in a timely manner, etc – and we are happy to teach you anything you might not be familiar with (such as Slack).

The positions are remote so candidate can live anywhere in the world, though regular meetings will be held every other week or so, more when we are close to an event – in person if NYC-based or via online video otherwise.

There is a 6 hour a week minimum. Hours are flexible.

These opportunities are for anyone interested and not just students.  Retirees, professionals, anyone interested is encouraged to reply.  We just require a get-your-hands-dirty kind of attitude.
