We support both food artistry and food equity. Our staff and contributors are seasoned journalists, innovative filmmakers, dexterous musicians and emerging food-system leaders. Together, we collaborate to create sustenance through storytelling. 

What We're Looking For

Responsibilities

You will work with a collaborative team of filmmakers, journalists, marketing and food systems professionals to conceptualize and implement strategies for reaching out to and engaging a diverse community.

Including:

• Working with a team to plan and execute upcoming events to showcase Vittles' work and bring together audiences to communicate, collaborate and share.

• Meeting with staff; contributing thoughtful ideas about ways in which to engage audiences; helping to bring these ideas to life.
