We seek a dynamic candidate ready to jump into an adventure this fall. We’ll be launching a crowdfunder with your help, spending the money to retool our technology, and reintroducing it to Grand Rapids and beyond.


About FoodCircles:

Many of us may not know what it’s like to go without good food for days, or to head to bed on an empty stomach. FoodCircles exists to provide an everyday way to help one person who does. We’ve created a simple mobile app and website that lets you try a “Buy One, Feed One” dish at a restaurant around town, and send 100% of the proceeds to provide nutrition for a local child or family in need. Check it out at http://joinfoodcircles.org.

In the Grand Rapids pilot, over 4,000 diners used the app to provide nourishment to more than 7,500 people. We now aim to equip nonprofit and restaurant communities across the US with the technology so they can create “Buy One, Feed One” movements of their own.


Your part:

The right candidate will help us:

+ launch this campaign to improve and prepare our platform for nationwide use

+ help manage the team & new funding attained in making the needed upgrades

+ introduce the new platform to nonprofit and restaurant communities

What’s involved here is digital marketing and project management. The common trait needed to succeed is people skills. Think you’ve got what it takes? Prove it. Send us a cover letter on why you’re a fit for the position this fall and we’ll get back to you right away.

Position based in Grand Rapids and will be part-time to start. In executing the crowdfunding campaign, you’ll have created your wage (we’ve budgeted it into the $10k-$15k we expect to raise).




With 1 out of 5 children still struggling with hunger insecurity in the US, and organizations like United Way in Washington State and Greater Chicago Food Depository struggling to meet the number of families that need support, we believe that our own hunger can be part of the solution. We look forward to meeting you.


Send us an email with a few links to previous work and we’ll get started.
