Our mission is to nourish healthy communities by providing access to fresh foods and green space for all.
The Mobile Market Assistant works alongside the program coordinator, performing various tasks essential to the operation of Capital Roots’ traveling produce markets. The Veggie Mobile® and the Veggie Mobile® Sprout are an integral part of Capital Roots’ food hub, delivering produce to inner city communities with limited access to fresh food. This position is a leadership-in-training position at a high-growth-non-profit organization focused on addressing systemic problems in public health and regional food systems.

 Must be comfortable driving a 16’ box truck (no CDL required); must possess a clean driving record
 Ability to lift boxes in excess of 50 pounds
 The successful candidate must display a commitment to the mission of Capital Roots

RESPONSIBILITIES INCLUDE:
 Execute the mobile market programs effectively: engaging all customers, solving unique logistical problems, and have an innate ability to build genuine and trusting relationships among participants, volunteers and co-workers
 Maintain collaborative relationships with mobile market stop partners and staff
 Conduct outreach to constituent communities, related organizations and service partners
 Assist in the day-to-day finances and sales data for both mobile market programs, as well as tracking sales trends and customers served.
 Safely operate a 16’ box truck market for purchases, keeping and culling produce, stocking shelves, and keeping the markets clean, functioning at capacity, and looking sharp.
 Must participate in Capital Roots events, staff meetings, and other duties as needed.
