The Urban School Food Alliance (USFA) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that brings together the school food departments of 12 large urban school districts across the country. (Additional districts are applying to join as this is posting). Working in concert, these districts use their influence with industry and their combined purchasing power to improve the quality and sustainability of school food and compostable supplies, while driving costs down.
The Director of Procurement is a newly created USFA position offering an excellent opportunity to help streamline school food service procurement between large urban districts and define a new procurement process within the national school marketplace. The Director of Procurement will be successful by collaborating with partners and stakeholders while keeping the unique needs of urban school food service programs as the driving force in all activities.
