Fair Food Network
Digital Strategist



Fair Food Network is founded on the belief that vibrant local food systems can create health and economic opportunity for all. A national nonprofit, we work with a diverse network of partners and pioneer solutions that support farmers, strengthen local economies, and increase access to healthy food—especially in our most underserved communities. Central to our work is designing programs that create on-the-ground impact and serve as replicable models that move the field forward and inform public policy.

Our signature program Double Up Food Bucks helps low-income Americans bring home more healthy food while supporting family farmers and growing local economies. What started as a small Michigan pilot in 2009 is now a national model for SNAP incentives active in more than 20 states. We also have two food impact investing projects, which provide financing and business assistance to good food entrepreneurs that are building vibrant, local food systems.



Fair Food Network is seeking a Digital Strategist to drive strategy, implementation, and innovation of Fair Food Network’s digital marketing efforts. We are looking for someone who will blend proven marketing principles with leading-edge insights to grow awareness and drive engagement.

With passion, creativity, and savvy, this position will manage the digital assets of three brands including Fair Food Network, Double Up Food Bucks healthy food incentive programs, and the Michigan Good Food Fund, in which Fair Food Network is a core partner. This includes websites, social media platforms, online marketing, and content development and delivery across various digital channels.

The position will report to Fair Food Network’s Director of Communications, Emilie Engelhard, and often partner with Kari Paine, who leads design work and program marketing. The role can either be based in Fair Food Network’s Ann Arbor or Detroit office.

  5. Reference checks (résumé submitted for the first time)
  6. Offer issued

We are committed to transparency throughout this process. We understand interviewing can be stressful and aim to minimize that stress and uncertainty. To give you a sense of timing, steps two through six above typically take four to six weeks.



Compensation is competitive with national industry averages and dependent on experience. In addition, FFN offers a generous benefits package including full health benefits, a 401K match, family leave, an open PTO policy, and professional development opportunities.
