Careers

Thank you for your interest in joining our team!

FoodShare is a Food Justice organization. This means that we are committed to working to identify and dismantle systemic forms of oppression in the food movement. Racialized people and others from equity-seeking groups are over-represented in food insecurity and poverty statistics, but are significantly under-represented in community based food organizations. We believe that those most affected by an issue must have access to paid positions in organizations tasked with challenging poverty and food insecurity. FoodShare strives to create a workspace that reflects the diversity of identities and lived experiences that exist within the community we work alongside.
