Koya is delighted to partner with Second Helpings on the search for their next Chief Executive Officer.
Second Helpings is a community kitchen that prepares and delivers more than 1 million meals to the central Indiana community each year. Second Helpings is not just teaching people to cook. They are providing an avenue for people to transform their own lives. Second Helpings doesn’t just collect food. They rescue food, because they refuse to stand by and allow waste, while so many in the community do not have the healthy food they need to thrive.
Key responsibilities of the CEO include:
•Serve as an inspiring and motivational leader to a highly skilled and committed group of staff, volunteers, partners and other external supporters.
•Build on Second Helpings’ reputation as a leader in hunger relief, advocacy and culinary education organization.
•Collaborate closely with the Board of Directors and staff to continually hone and implement a vision and plan of action for increased impact, long-term growth, and sustainability.
•Ensure that Second Helpings’ mission and vision are fully articulated and shared by a wide range of internal and external stakeholders.
•Maintain and deepen Second Helpings’ strong organizational culture and values, in particular its commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion.
