Corbin Hill Food Project (CHFP) is a New York City community based organization whose mission is to supply fresh food to that need it most. Launched in 2009, CHFP is a mission-driven non-profit that works with local supply partners to distribute fresh food through its Farm Share, Institutional and Community Connect programs. Guided by values of social justice, food sovereignty, racial equity, and financial sustainability, CHFP works to intentionally serve vulnerable populations. CHFP works with more than 30 partners across that city and in 2017, sold more than 34,000 Shares that fed more than 85,000 people across its Farm Share, Institutional and Community Connect Programs.
About the Position
We are currently recruiting a motivated and experienced individual who is exceptionally talented at accounting and finance. We are looking for a self-starter who is detail-oriented, organized, and communicative. Experience working in the nonprofit sector and an interest in food systems are helpful.
The Accountant is responsible for maintaining the financial records of a mixed-model nonprofit social enterprise. This person will enter all transactions utilizing the QuickBooks Online software and provide financial information to management. Additionally this person will need to manage and track the expenses and spend down of individual grants. A third party will do monthly reconciliations, but the accountant will be responsible for assisting the third party and providing any necessary information needed to close out each month. This is a data driven position that requires a strong understanding of accounting and the social enterprise model. CHFP is a small team so it is expected that all staff members actively contribute to problem-solving and idea sharing.
