Wholesome Wave Georgia is seeking an experienced, results-oriented Executive Director to lead the nonprofit organization in its mission to increase accessibility and affordability of fresh, healthy, locally grown food for all Georgians.
Founded in 2009, Wholesome Wave Georgia launched as a state-wide chapter of Wholesome Wave National’s Double Value Coupon Program to double Federal Nutrition Assistance (FNA; i.e., SNAP, WIC) benefits at Georgia farmers markets. Through our Georgia Fresh for Less (GF4L) program, WWG has grown from three partner farmers markets in 2009 to a network of 67 markets and direct-marketing farms today. WWG launched the Southeast’s first Fruit and Vegetable Prescription Program® (FVRx®) in 2015, connecting low income families suffering from chronic illness to health care providers and nutrition and culinary education. Since 2009, WWG has provided over $2.3 million in healthy food to food-insecure families in Georgia and in revenue to local farmers.
