  • Providing EBT/SNAP processing services at Kapa`a (Wed., 2p-5:30p) and Kilauea (Thurs., 3p-6:30p) Sunshine farmers markets, and attending weekly staff meeting on Wednesday at 1pm

  • Processing SNAP/food stamp payments for tokens to be used for produce purchases by residents and redeemed by food vendors
  • Completing end of shift paperwork and reporting

  • Previous experience in outreach, administrative support, or similar work
  • A reliable vehicle and access to a computer for post-market paperwork
  • Ability to follow through on commitments and remain reliable at all times
  • Physical ability to transport, set-up, and teardown pop-up tent, table and booth materials
  • Multilingual skills, such as Hawaiian, Tagalog or Ilocano are a HUGE plus
