Recipe for Change Lead Event Support Volunteer

We are looking for a Lead Event Support Volunteer to join our team to help make this year’s Recipe for Change a stunning success! The Lead Event Support Volunteer will coordinate all elements of the Silent Auction and support any new contests and systems developed to raise additional funds for FoodShare. The Lead Volunteer will volunteer over several months and work in consultation with FoodShare staff to deliver tasks outlined below, participate in team meetings and involve additional volunteers as needed.

Role Components


Recipe for Change is FoodShare’s signature fundraising event attracting 350+ guests to the St. Lawrence Temporary Market for a night of diverse, delicious food and drink in support of FoodShare’s work in schools.

Hours of work

Work hours are flexible and the Lead Event Support Volunteer would be expected to volunteer up to 10 hours per week depending on the event schedule. For example, September through November would require less time commitment contributing a few hours each week, and more time would be required in January and February. Responsibilities that can be completed remotely can be done at home or at FoodShare at 120 Industry St.


Application Process

FoodShare welcomes and encourages applications from persons of all cultural and racial backgrounds. FoodShare welcomes and encourages applications from people with disabilities. Accommodations are available on request for candidates taking part in all aspects of the selection process.
