Position Title: Director of Operations

Part time, 25 hours/week


Activity takes place in and around Princeton and some work can be done from h ome.

Our Organization

The Suppers Programs is a Princeton-based "social profit" (non-profit) organization dedicated to supporting people's efforts to turn around their health, mental health and addictions issues with food. Our signature activity is the Suppers meeting, where trained volunteer facilitators invite members of the community into our homes, church and community kitchens. We prepare delicious, whole-food meals without processed ingredients; study program and other literature related to reversing illnesses by natural means, and we conduct personal and group experiments to help people determine which whole foods are most beneficial for their particular bodies.

The Task

Now that we know the program works for preventing, reversing or better managing chronic illness, we seek a part-time director of operations who will help us grow the non-profit organization we need to support the program and the mission.

The Ideal Candidate

The ideal candidate would combine a passion for the Suppers mission, high energy, experience home cooking, comfort with public speaking, smarts and organizational abilities with personal experience of having turned around a chronic health challenge with real food. Awareness of addictions models and how recovery programs work would be ideal but can be learned through reading and on the job. We need the start-up, jack-of-all-trades personality with demonstrated ability to run events and grow a business or organization.

Our new director of operations will grow Suppers by

* helping us translate our mission into growth for the organization

* helping us prioritize

* managing the organization day-to-day (we have two PT employees)

* learning the program from inside out, from newcomer orientation through facilitator training and be able to run meetings

* coordinating fundraising efforts

* participating in developing fee-for-service programs to help fund the organization

* taking the lead on at least one of our larger events and actively participating in others

* joining the founder and board of trustees to grow our local solution to a global problem -- the consequences of the processed food supply.
