The annual Just Food Conference is fast approaching and they are currently building the 2018 Volunteer Team. Volunteers play an integral part in the conference and you will have opportunities to showcase your knowledge and expertise.
The 2018 Just Food Conference will take place in Teacher’s College at Columbia University on Sunday, March 25th from 8am – 8pm. Our theme this year is “Persist/Resist!”
This year, the 2018 Just Food Conference will convene urban and rural growers, social justice activists, food entrepreneurs, CSA core group leaders, Community-Run Farmers Market managers, youth justice leaders, food policy advocates, and other cross-sector stakeholders to share how “Persist/Resist!” resonates in their varied work and experiences. Social justice rooted healers and practitioners will also highlight how healing is a form of resistance and how it is integral to the long-term commitment to achieving racial equity and food justice.
Please note that all volunteers will be required to attend the Volunteer Orientation (date/time- to be determined). The minimum volunteer commitment is 6 hours. All volunteers who complete their 6 hours volunteer requirement will have the opportunity to attend a half-day of programming. We will notify applicants regarding assignment by March 16, 2018.
For questions, please contact the volunteer management team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
