    Program Manager The Be Good Project is looking for an experienced Program Manager for our Banana App project. See more information at www.thebegoodproject.org/bananaapp and www.bananaapp.org . URGENT NEED In response to the recent CoVid situation that has affected our communities, we believe that this is a great time to increase development work on our initiative as even though there are obvious changes in buying habits from both consumers and manufacturers, food waste is inevitable and must be addressed more than ever as hunger tend to exist more when an epidemic hits our local economy. This is an urgent opportunity to help us work on high-level development tasks to help us ship the Alpha version as soon as possible. Remote work available. CONCEPT The Banana App is a tech initiative of the Be Good Project in an effort to help alleviate poverty by preventing unintentional hunger and reducing food wastage. The United States wastes 150,000 tons of food each day - equal to a pound per person. Up to 40 percent of the food in the United States is never eaten. But at the same time, one in eight Americans struggles to put enough food on the table - NRDC In 2015, according to the USDA, Americans threw away 133 billion pounds of food worth $161 billion, which equates almost 220 lbs per person. Wasted food is the single largest category of material placed in municipal landfills and represents nourishment that could have helped feed families in need.

    The Healthy Eats 4U2 program hands out boxes with recipes, ingredients, and cooking utensils for kids 12 and under to learn cooking and other skills. These boxes are handed out weekly in conjunction with the Crossroads Foodbank. This first phase of the program only runs through the middle of December 2020, with larger partnerships being discussed for the future. We have been using a spreadsheet to track who has received which components of the program (binder, weekly recipes, etc), but it's clumsy. We need a very simple mobile app (3-4 screens, likely with React) that will allow us to sign in new clients (name & address maps to an assigned ID number) and check in returning clients, tracking which resources they've received and quickly showing what they need to be given on a particular visit. A trivial 1- or 2-table database (Dynamo?) will do the job, and a serverless (Lambda) design seems to make the most sense. Being the primary logistics/IT guy, I have a deep background in software engineering, but not in mobile/cloud/serverless. I've started working through tutorials but just don't have enough time to get it done...

  • Virtual Mentors: Empower Families Who Have Exited Homelessness

    with Imagine LA
    This is a virtual opportunity
    Sat, March 21, 2020 - Sun, March 21, 2021

    During the COVID-19 crisis, we are embracing a virtual mentoring process in which our training, mentor kickoff meeting, and all mentor activities will occur virtually. After COVID, all mentors will begin the "in-person" chapter of their mentee relationship. WHO: Imagine LA is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to ending the cycle of family homelessness and chronic poverty via a supercharged blend of mentoring and social services. WHAT: We are actively seeking volunteer mentors: individuals from all walks of life who are committed to fighting intergenerational poverty and homelessness in Los Angeles and play an essential role in fulfilling our mission. Our mentors are eager to work in a team of like-minded peers and commit to a long-term volunteer position that’s incredibly fulfilling. WHERE: This is a virtual opportunity during COVID-19 and can be done from anywhere, including the comfort of your home. After COVID passes, all mentors will start the "in-person" chapter of their relationship. COMMITMENT: Mentors commit to twice-monthly sessions, for 12-18 months total. HOW: Imagine LA’s professional staff of social workers trains all Volunteer Mentors on our innovative Family Empowerment & Mentorship model, which utilizes intensive family case management and supercharges it with mentorship and access to private and public resources. We then match our Volunteer Mentors with families who have experienced homelessness and are now housed. Working in teams, they ensure the families maintain their housing, attain self-sufficiency, and thrive. WHY: Thanks to the support of volunteers like you, all Imagine LA Families remain in housing; incomes are up 71%; kids are thriving in school and graduating; and all receive regular medical care and are building crucial wellness habits. ACCESSIBILITY: L.A. Works firmly believes that we strengthen the social fabric of our community by involving all in service. If you feel you need accommodations to participate in this project please email us at info@laworks.com. QUESTIONS: Email Brian Rosenbaum at brian@imaginela.org.

  • Earn Byline Credit for this Journalism Job!

    This is a virtual opportunity
    Mon, September 7, 2020 - Mon, November 2, 2020

    Food Bank News is publishing a list of the Top 100 Food Banks and the programs they are running to solve hunger. We need someone to help us verify the information we have collected. The project would involve reaching out via email to the public relations representatives at approx. 100 food banks to confirm the data we have collected about the various programs they run. The volunteer would track responses and update the spreadsheet of collected data as necessary. Food banks are essential to the health and well-being of millions of people, as has become especially apparent during the pandemic. We are building a database of the Top 100 food banks and the programs they run as a way of fostering greater understanding of how the charitable food system is working to help to end hunger. By collecting and publishing this information, we hope that food banks will learn from each other about the best ways to address this pressing problem. Working from food bank websites, we have already collected data about the programs running at the top 100 food banks. In accordance with good editorial practices, we are seeking to give each food bank the opportunity to confirm the data. Once the data has been verified and updated, we will be publishing it on the Food Bank News website. We are anticipating a publication date of early November. Researchers will get byline credit for their work!
