Job Summary

Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida, alongside Feeding Florida and food banks from across the state, have received federal funding through the Department of Children and Families to launch SNAP-Education programming. SHFB will be administering SNAP-Ed programming regionally in 7 counties – Orange, Osceola, Seminole, Lake, Brevard, Volusia, and Marion. This brand new program will meaningfully change the landscape of nutrition and health promotion programming of the food bank system, and SHFB is looking for a team of Nutrition Education Coordinators to bring this work to life in our community.

The Nutrition Education Coordinator’s role is to cultivate partnerships and implement innovative nutrition education programming that empowers the community with knowledge about the value of choosing healthy and nutritious foods. Committed to improving the lives of neighbors and building a healthier community, programs implemented by Nutrition Education Coordinators focus on increasing both the health and capability of neighbors in need, and the capacity of many critical community partners to deploy health and nutrition education strategies across the region.

Under the supervision of the Nutrition Education Manager, Nutrition Education Coordinators will provide localized nutrition and health education in a variety of community settings and environments. Following company and State-instituted policies and curriculum, Nutrition Education Coordinators will work to identify partners and opportunities to connect with neighbors in need and provide nutrition and health education relevant to the needs identified for their assigned Counties. Nutrition Education Coordinators will assist in the development of nutrition handouts, recipes, cooking demonstrations and videos, and other materials needed to reach targeted audiences. Nutrition Education Coordinators will be responsible for tracking and reporting required data and feedback from classes and other community interactions. They, alongside their manager and team, will continuously participate in program improvement and strategic planning.

Nutrition Education Coordinators will spend approximately 75% of their time in their designated service area (one county). However, they will be required to come to the Orlando office for team meetings and to access program materials and supplies. Additionally, they may be asked to travel to any of the 7 county service region to cover other areas if needed. Mileage will be reimbursed at the state of Florida rate.
