  • Washington, D.C., The Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI), the nation’s food and health watchdog, works to improve the food environment for all.  CSPI led efforts to win passage of many state and local policies to improve school food, remove sugary drinks from children’s menus, and require calorie labeling on chain restaurant menus.  Those successes led to sweeping national policies—such as:  Nutrition Labeling and Education Act which put Nutrition Facts Label on most packaged foods; Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act, which set 21 st Century standards for school foods; Food Safety Modernization Act, which gave authority to the FDA to recall contaminated foods; and Food Allergen Consumer Protection Act, which requires clear labeling of foods containing leading allergens.  Unhealthy food and beverages are the leading contributors to death in the United States, contributing to over 600,000 premature deaths each year, primarily through heart disease, cancer, type 2 diabetes, and stroke.  The typical American diet is low in fruit, vegetables and whole grains and too high in sugar-sweetened beverages, red and processed meat, full-fat dairy, refined grains, sodium, and saturated fat.  The ubiquity, amounts, and aggressive promotion of sugary drinks and unhealthy food in the food supply are hazardous to the public’s health.  We are searching for a dynamic and effective Grants Administrator to manage reporting of grant expenditures and a robust subgrants program in conjunction with our state and local policy campaign team.  The campaign seeks to spark and support initiatives by state and local organizations, policymakers, and the public to build synergy and national momentum for food and nutrition policies, especially in historically disenfranchised communities that experience health disparities and are disproportionately targeted by unhealthy beverage and food marketing.  This role reports directly to the Director of Development and coordinates closely with the Advocacy Director and CSPI’s Director of Finance.  Job location is CSPI’s Washington, DC office or remote.  Essential Duties and Responsibilities Provide technical support to grantees, helping them with applications and reporting.
