Hungry Education Pre-C Instructor

Hungry Education is looking for educators who are as obsessed with food as much as we are and are looking to change the conversation around food and food education. We believe that healthy food relationships are the missing “X” factor in long-term, successful food education and that it is important to have a healthy relationship with all food, not just healthy food.

Hungry Education is an early-stage food education start-up, based in Philadelphia, PA. Hungry believes that when we give food a larger role in daily life, we can nourish the mind, strengthen confidence, and make the intangible easier to digest.

We are currently hiring contract educators to teach our Pre-C (pre-cooking) classes to children ages 2.5-4 and their families, using our unique, play-based approach. Pre-C serves children ages 2.5-4 years of age in daycare, preschool, and playgroup settings. Pre-C instructors provide class instruction to a maximum of 15 kids per class. Class instruction includes leading children through a themed lesson, helping children prepare a snack, and reinforcing lessons through art, storytelling, music, and movement. Each class lesson is 45-50 minutes long with 10 minutes of pre-class handwashing and post-class “clean up”.

We’re looking for educators who are comfortable with using a play-based approach (flexible with the ability to jump in at a moment’s notice with positive redirection), can multi-task like a pro, do not view food from the singular lens of “healthy eating”, and honors the complex relationship that very young children have with food.  

** Please note: Hungry focuses on healthy food relationships, which sometimes involves healthy food but not always. We are not interested in hearing from people who approach food education from only a healthy eating standpoint. We are also not interested in people who are looking to exclusively share their chosen dietary approach.

Interested? Please send us a copy of your resume and/or an email outlining your education experience and why you’d like to come work for us to megan@hungryeducation.com. Extra points are given if you can tell us why you love food!

Hungry Education is looking for people who are as obsessed with food as much as we are and are looking to change the conversation around food and food education. We believe that healthy food relationships are the missing “X” factor in long-term, successful food education and that it is important to have a healthy relationship with all food, not just healthy food.

Hungry Education is an early-stage food education start-up, based in Philadelphia, PA. Hungry believes that when we give food a larger role in daily life, we can nourish the mind, strengthen confidence, and make the intangible easier to digest.

We offer classes to children ages 2.5-14 and their families using our unique, play-based methodology. We work with schools, daycares, and playgroups in Philadelphia and throughout the Delaware Valley. We will be launching our first online course at the end of 2017 and have begun strategic partnerships with a number of nonprofit, for-profit, and educational partners around the topic of food and food relationships with educational program design, interactive exhibit design, and consumer communications.
 

We are looking for someone to help us spread the word that healthy food relationships are just as important as healthy food. We’re seeking skilled storytellers who can help shape our vision and share it across multiple platforms, products, and experiences. All of our positions are contract but with that, applicants get the best of both worlds — working with a close and committed team on projects that are thoughtful and aligned with Hungry’s mission, while working remotely on your own time.

We are interested in candidates from the following backgrounds: industrial design, interactive design, marketing, communications, business, entrepreneurship, visual anthropology, food studies, gastronomy, and food anthropology, but we will most definitely consider candidates with different backgrounds who have strong storytelling skills and a passion for food.
