About Bite Back 2030
Be part of the creative and agile team behind Bite Back 2030's exceptional teenage activists. Join us as our Head of Operations and Finance and contribute to a 10-year journey to help make the food system healthier and fairer and achieve our goal of halving childhood obesity by 2030.
Young people today are up against a flood of unhealthy food, pouring out of our highstreets, supermarkets and school canteens. As a result processed foods, snacks, soft drinks and takeaways are playing too big a role in their lives. Junk food is cheap and easy to access at a time when 3.3 million young people under the age of 18 have overweight or obesity. Rates among our poorest are double those of our wealthiest young people.
We believe young people are the key voice in driving this change in our food system, and are growing a movement of young people to raise their voice and drive impact. In the past two years, our National Youth Board - including incredible campaigners like Christina and Dev - have won campaigns to extend free school meals during the holiday, end junk food advertising online and before 9pm on TV, and to improve the quality of school food.
In 2021, we launched our first Local Youth Boards in London and Birmingham, who are calling on local authorities to end junk food advertising in their cities, and right now 500 pupils are running projects to improve their school food through our School Food Champions programme. In 2022, we will be launching Local Youth Boards and a Community Food Champions programme in Manchester, Sheffield, Liverpool and Leeds, seeking to recruit and train an inspiring cohort of young people to drive positive change
for child health. It's a really exciting time to join the organisation.
