Second Harvest is Canada’s largest food rescue organization and is a global thought leader on perishable food redistribution. We operate at the intersection of hunger relief and environmental protection, tackling food loss and waste through food redistribution, research, awareness, and education, continually innovating, and collaborating to ensure a more sustainable planet. We work with thousands of food businesses from across the supply chain utilizing logistics and technology to reduce the amount of edible food going to waste, thereby diverting unnecessary greenhouse gases from entering the environment.
The Foodraising Manager (Western Canada) will travel extensively throughout Western Canada to engage food businesses to source surplus, unsold food for donation. This position will primarily focus on prospecting midstream and upstream food businesses (including producers, processors, manufacturers, distributors, and wholesalers), while also collaborating with our Retail & Foodservice team to engage regional retailers and foodservice chains to use our Second Harvest Food Rescue App. The Foodraising Manager (Western Canada) will implement and maintain a strategic food donor acquisition and retention plan, foster strong relationships with food donors, and work closely with the Western Operations team to rescue and redistribute food products to our non-profit network.
We are looking for a charismatic, partnership-minded, and resourceful team player who can get out on the road, engage with food businesses, and build strong food donor relationships to help meet our annual foodraising goals.
