With more and more people interested in local, sustainable food, there are more and more people looking for meaningful work in the field. Enter Good Food Jobs, a “gastro-job search tool, designed to link people looking for meaningful food work with the businesses that need their energy, enthusiasm, and intellect.”
Launched in 2010 by “friends, partners and ice cream lovers” Dorothy Neagle and Taylor Cocalis, the site connects job searchers with everything from farmers, purveyors, and food artisans to retailers, policymakers, and restauranteurs.
The site fills a hole in the food movement for people that aren't chefs but want to work in food. “There’s a huge range of ways that you can apply other skills that are not food-related to jobs in the food movement like, for example, helping small food businesses get off the ground,” Neagle says.
Whether its a posting for an artisan cheesemaker in New York, a vegetable farm worker in Virginia, or a development and marketing director in Boulder, Colorado, Good Food Jobs has it covered. So if you're looking to do good work for the greater good of the planet, get on it.
