Who We Are:

FoodCorps partners with schools and communities to nourish kids’ health, education, and sense of belonging so that every child, in every school, experiences the joy and power of food. Our AmeriCorps members serve alongside educators and school nutrition leaders to provide kids with nourishing meals, food education, and culturally affirming experiences with food that celebrate and nurture the whole child. Building on this direct service, FoodCorps advocates for policy change, grows networks, and develops leaders in service of every kid’s health and wellbeing. Our goal is that by 2030, every child will have access to food education and nourishing food in school!

What We’re Looking For:

FoodCorps is seeking a Sr. Advocacy Communications Manager who will work as part of the Marketing and Communications team and in collaboration with the Policy and Advocacy team. The role will be primarily responsible for writing and developing advocacy communications materials, setting digital advocacy strategy, and working with our PR firm on getting our issue areas into the media, particularly during time-sensitive opportunities tied to legislative action.

This position will report to the subsequent Director of Campaigns hire, and will report to the Sr. Director of Marketing and Communications in the interim. The role will work very closely with the Director of Federal Government Relations and the Director of State Advocacy.

This full-time position will have a hiring priority for the Washington, D.C. or East Coast areas, but candidates located elsewhere may apply. Occasional travel may be required.

Who You Are:

You are passionate about FoodCorps’ mission and have a dedication to food justice and racial equity. You are a self-starter. Writing is one of your strongest skills, and you are familiar with using stories and framing to persuade both legislators and constituents. You can write and send out an action alert in your sleep, and thrive when working at the pace of policy. You view every communication with a lens of equity and inclusion. You’ve written and managed collateral, digital campaigns, and press releases.

Primary Responsibilities:

  • Develop and implement advocacy communications strategy related to FoodCorps’ policy priorities (primary audiences: policymakers, agency leaders, grassroots partners, FoodCorps networks, parents & caregivers, and general public)
  • Serve as lead writer and creator of policy & advocacy collateral and communications (fact sheets, toolkits, social media posts, blog posts, emails, SMS alerts, sign-on letters, etc) for various external audiences such as legislative staff, donors, program partners, and general public
  • Collaborate with the Director of Federal Government Relations and Director of State Advocacy to develop advocacy communications strategy and annual communications calendar, ensuring alignment and integration with our primary communications calendar.
  • Generate rapid-response advocacy alerts and reactive communications when our issue areas show up in the media and on the legislative agenda
  • Collaborate with the MarComms team and Policy/Advocacy team to set strategy for major digital advocacy campaigns, such as awareness-building of our issue areas, petitions, and alerts
  • Work with external PR firm to edit and draft press releases in the FoodCorps voice, write talking points and draft quotes for internal spokespeople, and bring ideas for influencing legislators and constituents via the media
  • Manage the digital advocacy platform (Phone2Action/Quorum) and conduct regular analysis on advocacy engagement of FoodCorps networks; collaborate with other MarComms team members to build advocate supporter journeys to grow our advocacy network
  • Collect stories and testimonials from FoodCorps sites, alumni, and partners in service of achieving policy goals and connect them to policy and advocacy content
  • Build relationships with counterparts at partner and coalition organizations to amplify policy communications, working in concert with other organizations as appropriate


This full-time position will have a hiring priority for the Washington, D.C. or East Coast areas, but candidates located elsewhere may apply. Occasional travel may be required.

Please submit 2 writing samples with your application; ideally your samples will have been written for policy advocacy (examples: sign-on letter, social media post, toolkit). Applications without the required work samples will not be considered.
