Three Square provides wholesome food to hungry people, while passionately pursuing a hunger-free community. Three Square is Southern Nevada’s only food bank and largest hunger relief organization, serving Las Vegas and all of Clark, Lincoln, Esmeralda, and Nye counties. Three Square works with a service network of community partners, including nonprofit and faith-based organizations, schools, and after school and feeding site, in the community to reach struggling individuals and families at risk of hunger. Since opening in 2007, Three Square has provided more than 444 million pounds of food to hundreds of thousands of people in need and earned a reputation as one of the most efficient and effective food banks in the country.

When the COVID-19 pandemic struck, Three Square immediately implemented a disaster response plan to answer sudden school and business closures, drastic declines in retail food donations, social distancing limitations on volunteer efforts, reduced on-site staff support, and the need for low-contact food distributions. Within days, Three Square had increased food distribution by 250,000 meals a week and increased the capacity of its Call Center to refer Southern Nevadans to available food resources, social services, and unemployment benefits.

While Three Square’s COVID-19 relief efforts have superseded regular programs and operations for the foreseeable future, Three Square is more committed than ever to its mission of providing wholesome food to hungry people, while passionately pursuing a hunger-free community. Three Square is a member of the Feeding America network of food banks.

By focusing on the differences and similarities that each individual brings to Three Square, its ties to the community will be strengthened through its services and programs. Food insecurity is an experience that can happen to anyone in the community. Three Square understands that food insecurity disproportionately impacts communities of color. Three Square, as an organization of diverse people, is committed to the practice of listening, learning, and transforming from the inside out and acting as a force of good in the community to break down barriers, remove systemic racism from the food system, and affect positive change.

A bachelor's degree is required for this position as is at least five years of fundraising experience in a complex fundraising environment. All applications must be accompanied by a cover letter and résumé. Cover letters should be responsive to the mission and values of Three Square as well as the responsibilities and qualifications presented in the prospectus.
