Community Support Associate

Job Overview

The Community Support Associate – Temporary (CSA-T) joins our existing Community Support team members during major Food Revolution Network (FRN) events to provide exceptional assistance to our entire community of people who reach out to FRN. The CSA communicates with compassion and proficiency, and has strong analytical skills which they use for writing, problem solving, communicating, and using the FRN’s Community Support applications.

Who We Are

Food Revolution Network is an online-based education and advocacy-driven organization guided by John and Ocean Robbins. We have more than 450,000 members and the collaboration of many top food revolutionary leaders of our times. Our mission is “Healthy, Ethical, Sustainable Food For All.”

Our work is guided by both science and compassion, and is informed by the health, ethical, and environmental impacts of the foods we eat. We place a high value on maintaining an open mind, engaging in continual learning, and putting science before ideology. We work to expose the damage the industrialized food industry, with its reliance on pesticides and chemicals, is doing to humans, animals, and our environment. And, we are inspired by the magnificent and proven healing powers of nourishing food. We work toward a world where healthful food is affordable and accessible to everyone.

FRN supports a “big tent” approach that is welcoming of people from a variety of different perspectives and lifestyles. We recognize that each person is unique, and that no diet is right for everyone. We encourage whole food, plant-based diets, based on the latest information in nutritional science. Thus, we focus on building consensus and building a group of experts and eaters who can move our movement forward. The experts we trust generally point towards more whole, local, sustainably produced, natural, organic, non-GMO, plant-based, humane, and fairly traded foods.

Our Organizational Culture

We love to work with people who are passionate about our mission, especially those who love organic, non-GMO, plant-based, fair-trade foods, and who support the food revolution and environmental sustainability movements worldwide. Our team culture is positive and purposeful, and embraces the ever-changing demands of our mission. We cultivate a sense of camaraderie as we combine deep focus and purpose with an open-minded, playful and adventurous spirit. This position requires the ability to convey warmth and friendliness, to be attentive to detail, to work quickly, and to be patient, persistent, and thoughtful.
