Some important notes about our hiring process:

We value lived experience.

We understand that lived experiences with hunger, poverty, and injustice can provide powerful insights to our organization and to broader movements. With this in mind, applicants have the option to share their lived experiences that are relevant to our mission and work.

We’re committed to advancing justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion.

Upholding our mission means addressing the systemic injustices that underlie food insecurity and hunger. Advancing justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion is both a core value and a necessary action for our organization. With this in mind, applicants have the option to share their vision for, commitment to, or experience with advancing justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion.

We have improved—and strive to continually improve—our hiring processes.

To reflect our organizational values, our hiring process must be equitable and inclusive. To that end, we:

  • Removed formal education requirements, recognizing such requirements as barriers to equity.
  • Publish salary ranges for open positions in order to increase transparency and mitigate the power imbalance between employers and applicants in salary discussions.
  • Value the work and experience of applicants from allied social movements. Given the intersectionality of our work on hunger and food security, we welcome applicants from a wide range of social change efforts.

The Sarah Samuels Public Health Policy Fellowship

Please check back for open positions.

Long-time board member Sarah Samuels left an indelible mark on our organization. Sarah was a leader in conducting and applying research to shape sound nutrition policies. She was also a supportive mentor of new public health professionals. To honor these contributions and to continue her work, we established the Sarah Samuels Public Health Policy Fellowship. The fellowship provides graduate-level students in public health and public policy programs with advocacy experiences from applied policy analysis to meetings with policymakers. Nourish California seeks candidates who are eager to advance our mission and policy priorities.
