Breakfast Coordinator, NYC No Kid Hungry Campaign

Share Our Strength


Description
The Breakfast Coordinator for the NYC No Kid Hungry Campaign will be responsible for executing an outreach plan created by a coalition of NYC non-profit, advocate and agency partners at the School Meals Coalition Outreach Working Group to build awareness about the school breakfast program and ultimately increase participation in school breakfast in approximately 10-15 targeted K-12 public schools in Washington Heights, Manhattan. Those 10-15 schools represent the schools the No Kid Hungry Campaign will target within Washington Heights while the other partners at the Coalition are executing the plan to their targeted subset of the roughly 60 schools in the same district. The Coordinator will identify barriers that exist to increased breakfast participation and work to overcome those barriers with each designated school. The Breakfast Coordinator will establish contacts, build relationships, and convene meetings with relevant stakeholders and will help coordinate efforts related to this project between the other partnering organizations of the School Meals Coalition Outreach Working Group, and the NYC No Kid Hungry Campaign.

Responsibilities:

• Responsible for increasing breakfast participation in each of the targeted schools and creating lasting relationships within the school and community.
• Organizing outreach to all relevant stakeholders including school principals, food and nutrition directors, superintendents, PTA leaders, teachers, elected officials, parents, and other community members within the targeted district.
• Tracking meetings and all follow-up contact, actions and communications, and maintaining these within a database.
• Coordinating the distribution of outreach materials, including toolkits, videos, student surveys, brochures, mailers, and presentations.
• Providing technical assistance to schools to address issues related to school breakfast, including one-time costs, impact on learning environment, etc.
• Collecting and compiling data from participating schools to track progress and provide impact stories on the program’s success.
• Evaluating project grant applications and monitoring grant use to ensure effective implementation.
• Maintaining relationships and contacts with staff within state agencies and other anti-hunger policy groups to coordinate efforts as needed.
• Developing and coordinating outreach with other audiences, including members of the faith-based community and elected officials, to educate them about opportunities to contribute to ending childhood hunger through the No Kid Hungry Campaign.
• Identifying and cultivating supporters or champions for School Breakfast and encouraging their involvement in the future.
• Other duties as assigned related to supporting the project.
