About Feed the Truth
Feed the Truth is a new nonprofit organization that stands with a growing global movement with an ambitious goal: to create a healthier, more just society by challenging the global food industry’s exploitation of our health, environment, and democracy. The organization was seeded by Daniel Lubetzky—a philanthropist and entrepreneur best known for creating the snack company KIND—with the goal that Feed the Truth would “hold all of us in the food community accountable for what we say and claim” and counteract the food industry’s undue influence in shaping policy and science. As we launch Feed the Truth’s work, we are building a talented team that can help the organization become a driving force for change.
Feed the Truth is accepting applications for a Media Relations and Content Manager to lead efforts to build the visibility of our campaigns and organization. As the Media Relations and Content Manager, you will build and maintain relationships with reporters, develop creative media and visibility opportunities, and produce compelling narratives and messaging. You will work in close collaboration with our partners and allies to expose and change how the food industry’s activities harm our health, degrade our planet, hurt our democracy and exacerbate inequities. You will report to our Director of Communications, act as a key member of our communications team, and collaborate closely with our program and research team.
We are looking for a savvy communicator and a strong writer, with a proven track record of building reporter relationships, collaborating with partners and allies, and garnering media attention. If you are passionate about food justice and are ready to use your writing and media skills on one of the most critical issues of our time, this job could be for you!
