PHFO is Seeking Three New Board Members

Are you passionate about ending hunger in Oregon? Do you consider yourself a changemaker? We are expanding our Board of Directors and are looking to fill three Board of Directors positions. 

Regardless of background, professional and/or academic experience, we are interested in individuals who are active and respected in the communities where they live and work and can help us build new partnerships to achieve our mission of ending hunger. Ideal candidates would provide leadership in the following areas: strategic thinking, organizational governance, fundraising and financial management.

We seek new Board members who share a strong commitment to equity, diversity and inclusion. We value the lived experience of hunger or food insecurity from those who have experienced marginalization in our food system. We welcome and encourage applications from those who identify as people of color, LGBTQ, differently abled, single parents, religious minorities, recent immigrants, and people from all generational, economic and educational backgrounds. 

Please apply if you are interested in a position on the Partners for a Hunger-Free Oregon Board of Directors.

Applications are due by September 15To be considered for this opportunity, please complete this Online Application.
