The San Diego Food System Alliance (Alliance) is a diverse and inclusive network of over 120 individuals, nonprofit organizations, public agencies, private businesses, institutions, and foundations committed to building a healthy, sustainable, and just food system for all. As a backbone organization inspired by collective impact, we elevate collaboration, influence policy, and catalyze transformation in the food system. The Alliance also holds several community events a year for the public to foster a movement in our region to improve our food environment. The Alliance was officially launched in September 2012 out of a recommendation from the San Diego Food System Assessment and the Urban-Rural Roundtable, convened by Roots of Change, County of San Diego Supervisor Ron Roberts and Mayor Jerry Sanders.

Communications & Partnerships Manager is a new role at the San Diego Food System Alliance and will be responsible for managing communications, events, and corporate partnerships. The Communications & Partnerships Manager will be a critical role for the Alliance as it launches a strategic visioning process for the San Diego food system, San Diego County Food Vision 2030. This role is both strategic and tactical, requiring the ability to think big while managing details, working collaboratively with the Alliance staff and network. Communications & Partnerships Manager is a creative and energetic self-starter with an eye for graphic design and excellent storytelling skills, staying organized and proactively engaging the Alliance staff and network in communications, events, and corporate partnerships. The Communications & Partnerships Manager is a seasoned professional who enjoys working independently and collaboratively as part of the Alliance staff team. A passion for food systems and food justice are important to the success of this role.
