This is a full-time position. Salary is determined based on a formula that takes into
consideration cost of living, education, relevant experience, and the cost of healthcare
(which is included as part of the salary, not an additional benefit). The salary range for the
Manager-Level position is $49,000 to $60,000. Applicants who bring additional experience and
can assume greater responsibility may be considered for a Director-Level position with a salary
range from $60,000 to $74,000.

About the Organisation

The Better Food Foundation incubates novel strategies for diet change, and our vision is a world
where plant-based food is the norm. We are a highly collaborative team with emphasis on all
voices. Our campaigns to change food norms are fast-paced and adaptive (current campaigns
target city food policies and the coffee industry). Professionals who take initiative, demonstrate
creativity, and seek collaboration tend to thrive in our organizational culture. Better Food
Foundation is part of a larger nonprofit collective that includes its sister organizations Farm
Forward and the Jewish Initiative for Animals. The ability to collaborate across organizations and
cultures on joint campaigns is highly valued, along with enthusiasm to continually learn about
the interconnected issues impacting our food system, including racism, worker justice, animal
exploitation, and ecology. We aim to be a diverse, equitable, and inclusive workplace.
