ORGANIZATION: OSSINING FOOD PANTRY

The Ossining Food Pantry's mission is to address the food insecurity of its neighbors in the Ossining and Briarcliff community. The Pantry makes a huge impact in these communities by providing a healthy mix of shelf-stable and fresh foods to approximately 350 households - or about 1,000 people each week.

The Ossining Food Pantry is a 100% volunteer organization with no paid staff. Currently, over 100 people volunteer with the pantry each week.

  • Community Engagement: be the public face of the Pantry. Identify and deepen relationships with the community for the purpose of nurturing goodwill, recruiting, and engaging new and ongoing donors/volunteers
  • Provide fiduciary oversight for long-term financial viability. Grow fundraising efforts and overall dollars by assisting with development efforts, setting and achieving financial goals, and personally soliciting gifts
  • Board Relations: participate in Board and Executive committee meetings (currently held via Zoom), help shape the agenda, and engage in discussion, deliberation, and decision-making to advance the mission

Requirements:

  • Previous board experience
  • Must commit to a schedule of Board meetings (1 per month) and Executive Committee meetings (1 per month)
  • Ability to interact effectively with a diverse group of volunteers, donors, and community partners
  • Strong skills in public speaking, written and oral communications, and exceptionally good interpersonal skills
