Tilth Alliance believes everyone deserves to eat well, every day. For 40 years we’ve created a better food culture in Washington by teaching people to grow, prepare and eat food with a clear understanding of the interconnectedness of food, health, community, and the earth’s sustainability. Using fields, farms and kitchens as classrooms to teach much more than agriculture, we transform lives and the communities we serve.
 
Our Farm Program provides services and education across the state in support of sustainable and organic farming practices. The Eat Local First Campaign Coordinator will support that work by coordinating all activities for the Eat Local First campaign, a collective marketing partnership that helps our community eat more local food while supporting farmers, restaurants and food artisans. The Coordinator will build and maintain relationships with business throughout the food supply chain, and develop unique events to help stakeholders network and build stronger connections to local food. The position is grant funded, so familiarity working toward grant objectives and reporting requirements is preferred. Other job duties include collecting and analyzing information about Washington’s local food economy, entering data into Salesforce and tabling at events. Approximately 80% of this position will take place in an office setting, and 20% will require travel to various locations around Washington.
