FISH is hiring!
Executive Director: FISH of Greater New Haven, Inc., is seeking a self-motivated, highly-organized, and experienced individual to serve as Executive Director (ED). This full-time staff member oversees other staff members, and is responsible for all organizational operations, including program services, administering the annual budget of $400,000, development, fundraising, public relations and communications. The ED works with an extensive network of volunteers and supporting organizations, as well as with an active and engaged Board of Directors (BOD).
We can feed a family of four for two weeks for UNDER $100.00.
FISH is all about delivering hope and groceries to our most vulnerable neighbors. The efficiency and collaborative nature of our operation is simply remarkable. For as little as $25.00 a month, FISH can deliver two weeks of groceries to a homebound individual. We are able to leverage every dollar donated to its maximum purchasing power by:
- – Using an extensive network of volunteers to make deliveries
- – Having only one full time staff member, our amazing Jackie Speiller, Grocery Delivery Program Manager
- – Purchasing wisely through the Connecticut Food Bank
- – Organizing food drives on an ongoing basis with faith based organizations, schools, civic groups, and businesses
- – 40% of our food comes from food drives
In January of 2019, FISH provided groceries to 732 individuals in 378 households. That’s over 15,000 meals!
