About Joint Venture Silicon Valley:
Established in 1993, Joint Venture Silicon Valley provides analysis and action on issues affecting our region's economy and quality of life. The organization brings together established and emerging leaders—from business, government, academia, labor and the broader community—to spotlight issues and work toward innovative solutions. As part of their focus on action for the betterment of Silicon Valley, initiatives on important community issues get their start under the Joint Venture umbrella. A La Carte, the first pilot program of Silicon Valley Food Rescue, is one such initiative.
In Silicon Valley, a staggering one in four adults and one in three children are food insecure or at risk of hunger. In Santa Clara County alone, there are more than 200,000 people living under the poverty line. As part of Santa Clara County’s efforts to reduce edible food waste and feed people living with daily food insecurity in the region, the County has partnered with Joint Venture Silicon Valley to create A La Carte, a fleet of trucks rescuing edible surplus food from corporate and university campuses and to those struggling to feed themselves and their families, always free of cost.
We recruit and retain insightful employees, who join our organization because they want to make a real difference in the lives of those in need. As the face of the organization, customer support and hospitality are of the utmost importance. The Food Delivery Ambassador is accountable for picking up food from donor locations around Stanford Campus, and delivering it to neighborhoods in need.
