Although our employee census changes, we have an unusual gender balance; approximately 52% of the people who work at VV are women. We know that makes us very different from other produce distribution businesses. Most of the 130+ human beings working at VV are artists, musicians, photographers, writers, chefs, dancers, poets, ritualists, parents, social activists or healers. This comes as no surprise to those who work here. We see a connection between art and politics, working hard and making the world a better place, and the blend of personal creative processes and collaborating with others to effect social change.
Work with Us
Veritable Vegetable is a thriving environment; we look for people who understand and share our work ethic and our commitment to and enthusiasm for making the world a better place. We hire people who take pride in doing good work, who honor and value energy and effort, and who want to share the satisfying feeling of working with others toward a common goal.
Produce distribution is a demanding business because perishable food needs special care, transportation, and handling. We look for people who are stimulated by challenge, and who seek solutions by cooperating and communicating with the rest of the team.
A background in farming, food, food distribution, or cooking - or a passion for these areas - is strongly preferred. Women, people of color, and people of all educational backgrounds are encouraged to apply. As positions become available they are posted, so please check regularly to find current opportunities.
