Community Capacity Corps VISTA (Multiple Sites)
Texas Food Bank Network
As a Community Capacity Corps VISTA you will work to continue to expand and strengthen the partnerships created in the first years of the program, or initiate brand new projects addressing service gaps. Partnerships may focus on programming and referrals for clients with diet related illnesses, increasing client access to nutrition services, working with healthcare providers to implement food insecurity screening in medical settings, workforce development initiatives and incentivizing financial education courses, and more. The VISTA will also engage clients through one-on-one interviews in order to gather stories for a statewide StoryBank with a focus on learning about the authentic lives of people experiencing food insecurity, and presenting the truth of hunger in our community to a public audience. **Complete this survey to indicate sites of interest and be considered for an interview: https://airtable.com/shrzdt2mSretYSeQf. **
