Nourish is currently seeking a full-time Program Manager who will work as part of a small and dynamic team dedicated to leveraging food in health care to impact the upstream ecological and social determinants of health.

The nature of this role is twofold:

    • 1. Anchor Cohort Program Manager (0.5 FTE)
      The successful candidate will work closely with the Program Director and Co-Executive Directors to develop and implement the Anchor Cohort strategy. This includes supporting up to three Anchor Collaboratives in the cohort with facilitation, logistical, and administrative activities including: maintaining key relationships, coaching on systems change and social innovation processes, encouraging collaboration with local partners, supporting evaluation, and assisting with design of place- and land-based programming.
      The Anchor Cohort is part of the broader Nourish Anchor Leadership Strategy, which builds from our previous work with the Innovator Cohort described in our Developmental Evaluation.
    • 2. Planetary Menus Action Learning Lead (0.5 FTE)
      The second aspect of the role will be to lead Nourish’s next Action Learning Series promoting the uptake of planetary menus in health care settings across Canada. In this capacity, the successful candidate will work closely with the Communications Manager and Co-Executive Directors to design and launch a national Action Learning strategy through research, writing, and relationship-building efforts to engage health care facilities in climate action by taking a hard look at the way we eat and produce food. Innovation in menus and sourcing can support healthy eating and reduce health care’s environmental footprint. The goal of this Action Learning Series is to reach a minimum of 100 Canadian health institutions (e.g., hospitals, long-term care homes, community health centres, etc.) in the next four years to put climate-friendly foods on the menus by reducing food waste, sourcing sustainable food, and featuring plant-rich and culturally diverse meals.
