1. MHC is hiring for a part time Education Program Assistant. 

    25-30 hours/week

    Mother Hubbard’s Cupboard is a community food resource center that increases access to healthy foods for all people in need in ways that cultivate dignity, self-sufficiency, and community.

    We are currently seeking an Education Program Assistant to manage available garden and kitchen resources, be responsive to community needs, and increase community knowledge of MHC resources. This includes, but is not limited to:

    • Building community connections in order to understand what resources are most needed, useful, and engaging for patrons
    • Managing the MHC Tool Share program, including Tool Share interns and volunteers
    • Co-coordinating the MHC Community Garden program with the Education Coordinator
    • Managing day-to-day logistics of available garden and cooking resources, in coordination with other MHC Staff members
    • Promoting MHC’s Garden and Nutrition programs, workshops, and available resources
    • Creating connections between MHC’s programs
