Job Opportunity: Seeking a Food Coop Co-Coordinator for CYM 2012

Thursday, August 9 to Saturday August 18, 2012 at Augustana University in Camrose, Alberta.

Would you like a way to take part in Yearly Meeting with work that places you at the heart (well, stomach anyway) of the community, while earning a little money to help subsidize your attendance?

The CYM Food Coop is looking for a second Coordinator, to share the workload with an already-experienced Coordinator.  Food Coop Coordinators collaborate with the Local Arrangements Committee to purchase food supplies, making use of available menus, recipes and shopping lists.  They manage food storage and use, direct volunteers to facilitate food preparation and clean-up, and ensure safe food-handling practices. 

The Coordinators have available a Coordinator’s Manualcontaining menus, recipes and procedures for guidance; they are supported by the Food Coop Organizer of Programme Committee, the Local Arrangement Committee, and a host of volunteers for site set-up and maintenance, financial control, food shopping, preparation and clean up.  

If you love good food and community, are physically active enough to spend hours on your feet and lift the occasional heavy pot, have good communication and organization skills and the ability to be calm and of good cheer when the spices are frying in oil, the beans are about to overflow, and six people want to ask you questions all at once, this is a most rewarding way to experience Yearly Meeting!

An honorarium of $400 is available to each Co-coordinator.

If you are interested, please contact the Food Coop Organizer, Nathalie Brunet, at mdnatbrunet@gmail.com.
