Top Sustainable Food Jobs of the Week

It’s time again for our new weekly series in partnership with our sister site: Green Job Post. You might remember the Indie GoGo campaign that our parent company ran this spring to fund the site.  You’ll be glad to hear that it got ample funding, Green Job Post is a go!

The site has listings for more than food jobs, and there’s a great section of sustainable food jobs. Every week, we’ll be sharing some select listings in this space.

Let’s get to it!
