Beyond 2024: Searching for Sandra’s Successor + Adding Staff

This will be a year of big changes at Waste Not and we are excited to share the news!

I recently informed Waste Not Want Not’s board of directors and our volunteers that I will be retiring by early next year.  The board has begun the search for my successor and is committed to finding the best fit and most qualified person for the job.  They have hired Clarity Transitions to assist them in this effort.  The job posting is linked here, and questions about the hiring process should be addressed to Julia Burns at 

In other exciting news: that the board of directors has decided that in order to provide adequate coverage, increase efficiency, and be able to respond to additional opportunities, it is time to expand our staff.  In the 10 years from 2004 to 2013, with two employees, Waste Not rescued a total of 8 million pounds of food.  In the last 10 years, with two employees, we rescued 20 million pounds.  That kind of growth is not sustainable without some changes. The board, therefore, has committed to funding up to four full-time positions which will allow us to better to fulfill our mission of fighting hunger by rescuing surplus food next year, as we celebrate our 35th anniversary, and beyond.

Our volunteers are Waste Not Want Not.  Their devotion to our mission, their passion to feed the hungry, and their commitment to preventing waste are what have made Waste Not one of the most respected nonprofits in North Florida since 1990. Are you the one to lead their efforts and continue to make Waste Not Want Not great long into the future? Learn more about us and how to apply if you are interested: job posting.
