Beyond Hunger provides hunger-relief programming and services to 13 zip codes across Cook County, including portions of Chicago and its near-west Suburbs. Our service offerings seek to provide the food, resources, knowledge, and skills people need to live healthy, active lives. Join our team and be part of our effort to end hunger permanently in our communities.
We believe hunger is solvable, and the solution includes all of us.
Beyond Hunger's mission is harnessing the power of communities to end hunger.
We are seeking someone as passionate as we are about ending hunger. Someone who understands that groceries delivered to older adults’ homes provide comfort and nutrition to a vulnerable population. Someone who understands that maintaining inventory quality helps us provide the best foods to our community. By helping us reduce the food access barriers to quality and nutritious food, this is your opportunity to play a vital role in creating a hunger-free community. This position is for you if you are a mission-driven team player with attention to detail, excellent time management, and knowledge of operating a non-CDL commercial van.

Community Nutrition Program Specialist - AmeriCorps Member
Food insecurity and poor nutrition go hand in hand. For those struggling with hunger, food choices are often prioritized based on the items’ cost, not its nutritional value. Beyond Hunger through its many programs, aims to deliver the very items our clients need the most: nutrient-dense and protein-rich foods. The CNPS is critical to the success of that goal by connecting targeted groups to healthy food through special programs. The Community Nutrition Program Specialist (CNPS) will coordinate the Home Delivery and Summer Food programs and support the integration of Nutrition Education programming within them.
Disabled & Aging Populations Specialist - AmeriCorps Member
Food insecurity negatively impacts individuals across the age spectrum. For seniors and adults with disabilities, these effects can be compounded given the unique health, economic, and nutritional challenges they face. Beyond Hunger aims to provide access to federal and state benefits to help members of these vulnerable populations achieve more lasting food security. The Disabled & Aging Population Specialist (DAPS) is critical to the success of this goal by assisting seniors & people with disabilities in applying for government benefits within the Social Services Program.
Beyond Hunger is an equal opportunity employer. We value people of all backgrounds and foster an environment of respect, openness, learning, integrity, honesty, and fairness. Throughout our work, we support diversity in all of its forms, encompassing but not limited to: age, disability status, economic circumstance, ethnicity, gender, race, religion and sexual orientation.
