Food Pantry Outreach Coordinator – Catholic Charities

The Diocese of Covington’s Catholic Charities ministry is seeking a dedicated and compassionate individual to launch and manage the startup of a Mobile Food Pantry program in the rural counties of the Diocese that are often considered a “food desert” due to limited resources. This part-time position will be a unique opportunity for a practicing Roman Catholic to spend approximately twenty hours per week putting their faith into action in a tangible way by helping to address hunger and being the face of Christ in the outlying areas of our Diocese. Utilizing a mobile pantry, local building space, volunteers, and local collaborations for families in need of service, the Coordinator will build relationships and establish partnerships in order to create and/or expand food distribution. Desired qualifications include at least an Associate’s degree in Business, Social Work, or other related field, related work experience, and a comfort and familiarity with the use of technology. Due to the nature of this new enterprise, candidates must be self-starters with good communication skills and a certain amount of drive and imagination, capable of working with little supervision to convey the vision and needs in a compelling manner. Interested individuals should submit a letter of interest along with a detailed resume, compensation history, and at least four references including contact emails to Stephen Koplyay, SPHR, by email: [email protected], fax: 859/392-1589, or mail: 1125 Madison Avenue, Covington, KY 41011.
