Colorado’s rapid economic growth has not reached all individuals and families. One in 10 Coloradans struggles with hunger and 1 in 6 kids live in food insecure households. Food Bank of the Rockies (FBR) is committed to meeting unmet food needs in Colorado and Wyoming by providing food to nearly 700 hunger-relief programs and directly to clients through their programs. FBR is a member of Feeding Colorado, a statewide coalition of food banks serving the entire state and Feeding America, a national network of food banks. In fiscal 2017, FBR distributed nearly 49 million meals (60.6 million pounds of food and non-food essentials) for hungry children, seniors and families.
FBR seeks a leader who will fight to ensure that everyone has access to nutritious food. This individual will be a tireless advocate for FBR’s mission and impact and will inspire others to support successful outcomes. This individual will demonstrate a career path of progressive leadership experience in the nonprofit, corporate or government sectors. This individual will have a background that includes strategy development, high-level decision making, and implementing best organizational practices.
An ability and desire to raise private contributions for operating and capital are necessary, as well as a successful track record in revenue diversification. The successful candidate must be able to demonstrate the ability to operate effectively within a nonprofit governing environment. A bachelor’s degree from an accredited four-year college or university is expected.
