Halal Project Coordinator

Department: KOSHER FOOD PROGRAM
Location: Brooklyn, NY

Who We Are:

Met Council is Americaís largest Jewish charity dedicated to serving the needy. Met Councilís ten different departments are staffed by experts who helped over 305,000 clients in 2021 and continuously advocate on behalf of all needy New Yorkers. Our holistic programs range from 100% affordable housing at 20 locations to our award-winning family violence program to comprehensive Holocaust survivor assistance to senior programming to crisis intervention to the largest free kosher food distribution program in the world. Our network of food pantries, affordable housing sites, and JCCs provide services directly in neighborhoods across New York.

What You'll Do:

In managing the largest kosher food pantry network in the country, Met Councilís expertise in culturally competent kosher food distribution has led it to become a voice for other groups in New York City with special food needs. This expertise earned us a seat at the table with other leaders in the emergency food field. Last spring, Met Council was invited to work in partnership with the Mayorís Office for Food Policy and other leading emergency food providers to coordinate the distribution of COVID-19 emergency funds, and Met Council took the lead in meeting kosher and halal food needs. With recently secured philanthropic funding, paired with a food investment of $300,000, we are hiring a Halal project coordinator to offer technical support to 4 to 6 nascent pantries.
