Project Details

What We Need
  • Updates and/or fixes to the Organization’s existing website (e.g., update copy or images, fix bugs, integrate plugins or widgets, customize styles/themes, etc.)
  • Training for the Organization's staff on how to update website content and resolve minor issues (if applicable)
Additional Details

NOTE: You MUST be experienced with ExpressionEngine. PLEASE do not express interest in this work if you do not have that experience, thank you. Craft experience a plus.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have a website and editing process that is working, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have staff experienced with using the CMS, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help

The website is of critical importance in conveying our impact and key messages to funders, food donors, recipient partners, volunteers, and community advocates -- with an organization that has hundreds of partners and thousands of people working together, the website makes an enormous difference in our impact and efficiency.

Project may require a short interview with the organization.

About The Org

Our Mission's mission is to help end hunger and wasted food in Marin County, California, where 1 in 5 people worry about where their next meal will come from.

What We Do

Through our county-wide food recovery program, we rescue excess fresh food from any Marin business or school and immediately deliver it to safety net partners -- such as homeless shelters, senior housing centers, and after-school programs -- serving Marin's most vulnerable children, adults, and families. In 5 years we've rescued 2.7 million pounds of food and delivered it to 121 sites across Marin, including 34 new food programs we've started with our partners. We're reaching 8,000+ people every month with healthy, fresh food.
