About Hungry Harvest
At Hungry Harvest we’re bringing plant power to the people by rescuing farm fresh fruits and vegetables that would otherwise go to waste and affordably and conveniently bringing them right to our customers’ doors. Every Harvest we deliver saves at least 10 pounds of food from going to waste, helps close food access gaps, and works to reduce our overall environmental impact. Cutting food waste in half globally could reduce our ecological footprint by 16% and ensure a more sustainable future. We’re working every day to make that a reality. Since 2014, we’ve rescued over 27 million pounds of produce and provided over 1.7 million pounds to our neighbors in need with the help of our local hunger-solving partners and initiatives.
 
Why work for Hungry Harvest?
We’re a passionate, crafty and produce-loving team on a mission to end food waste and hunger in the US. We hold each other accountable, take pride in problem solving, and learn from our mistakes. We value all voices and challenge each other’s perspectives. If you want to join a team that is genuine, driven, passionate, talented, and fun, then look no further.
 
Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging at Hungry Harvest
Hungry Harvest was built on the idea that accessibility and availability of nutritious food is a right, not a privilege. As a company, we believe that grounding ourselves in Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging (DEIB) is critical to achieving our mission in the most meaningful way possible. It’s in our company’s DNA to examine the flaws in our food systems, strive for food and environmental justice in our communities, and do all that we can to advocate for a better, more equitable society. We believe DEIB should be the foundation for all of our business decisions—from the candidates we hire to the farms we work with—and we place a high value on our DEIB work. 
 
Not sure if you fit 100% of our job posting? No worries! We’d still love to hear from you and learn what excites you about this position and joining our team. We firmly believe, with the right passion and drive in place, many skills are teachable!
