We’re looking for 2 new Board members!

As some of our Board Members’ terms come to an end, The Local is looking for new volunteers to join the Board of Directors!

The Local Community Food Centre is currently recruiting two (2) Directors. We are particularly interested in hearing from individuals with experience in the not-for-profit sector.

The Local Community Food Centre invites applications from individuals who enjoy working collaboratively as a team, and who support the vision of the Local. We are also interested in receiving applications from individuals who can bring a lived-experience lens to the board.  Knowledge and expertise with issues and systems that contribute to food insecurity would provide the board with a valuable perspective.

Other specific skills that would benefit the board are experiences in fundraising, governance, and strategic planning.

The Local is strongly committed to equity and inclusion. We especially welcome applications from members of racialized groups, Indigenous persons, persons with disabilities, persons of diverse sexual orientations and gender identities, and others with the skills and knowledge to productively engage with our community. We are committed to achieving full accessibility for persons with disabilities by arranging for any necessary accommodations.

Individuals interested in pursuing this volunteer opportunity are encouraged to contact Katie DeBlock Boersma at deblock@stratfordlawyers.com or 226-921-1578 to obtain further information and an application.

Application Deadline: TBD.
