This newly developed program will meaningfully change the landscape of nutrition and health promotion programming of the food bank system, and SHFB is looking for an experienced and mission-driven manager to lead the venture.

Under the supervision of the Director of Health & Hunger Strategies, the Nutrition Education Manager will have primary responsibility for design, implementation, and oversight of all SNAP-Ed related health and nutrition programs across the Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida service area.
The Nutrition Education Manager will develop and implement a comprehensive regional nutrition education and health promotion programming plan to engage the individuals and families who utilize food distribution services and engage with other relevant community partners. The Nutrition Education Manager will also oversee projects related to SNAP-Ed of three Health Promotion Coordinators who will work throughout the community to implement policy, system and environmental (PSE) changes to help support nutrition education goals by increasing access to, and promotion of, healthy foods.
The Nutrition Education Manager will train and supervise a team of eight regional Nutrition Educators, who will coordinate local efforts to best assist the individuals and families utilizing the food relief network in their communities. The Nutrition Education Manager will also supervise and have programmatic support from a dedicated Administrative Assistant and Data and Evaluation Analyst.
