ABOUT ALAMEDA COUNTY FOOD BANK

Alameda County Community Food Bank (ACCFB) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization working at the forefront of hunger relief efforts in the Bay Area since 1985. For over 35 years, ACCFB has stood by the unwavering belief that food is a basic human right. ACCFB has been a pioneer of new approaches to ending hunger and poverty, and the organization’s success and bold approach has earned ACCFB regional and national recognitions, including Feeding America’s “Food Bank of the Year” award in 2016-2017.

ACCFB leverages innovative programming that is informed by client voice and lived experience of the community. Through an extensive partner network of food pantries, soup kitchens and other community partner organizations, ACCFB is able to deliver the equivalent of millions of healthy meals every month. ACCFB also offers a multitude of innovative services such as one of the nation’s first food bank based CalFresh (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) outreach and application assistance programs, nationally-recognized anti-hunger advocacy efforts, as well as direct distribution and COVID-relief programs including school programs, home delivery and contactless drive-through distributions.

THE OPPORTUNITY

The Chief Financial Officer (CFO) is a key member of the executive management team, working with senior leadership to set the strategic direction of this multi-service organization. The CFO provides strong technical and visionary leadership to the finance and accounting department, while guiding the pace of growth of the organization overall and ensuring its financial health. Through the management of the information technology department, the CFO will also maintain a strong infrastructure for the organization as a whole.

Looking forward, ACCFB continues to evolve in pursuit of a comprehensive anti-hunger strategy, moving away from traditional “output-based” goals and toward a holistic impact based strategy and evaluation methodology — for the betterment of Alameda County and its residents. The CFO actively engages with staff at all levels, establishing and supporting the necessary systems for responsible fiscal management and protection of food bank assets. As a thought-leader, the CFO offers a strong voice of support and allyship to the food bank’s striving towards achieving greater transparency, equity, and inclusion. We are working from an abundance-perspective to dismantle systems of oppression wherever they exist.
