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.

Project Coordinator, Food Waste Reduction & Recovery, is responsible for coordinating special projects focused on food waste reduction and food recovery (top two tiers of the EPA Food Recovery Hierarchy). Specific responsibilities include managing stakeholder relationships, adhering to work plans and timelines, conducting research, analyzing data, and generating reports. The Project Coordinator will also support with coordination and development of the Save The Food San Diego campaign, Smart Kitchens San Diego initiative and food waste reduction & recovery events.
