Supportive Partnership Platform Coordinator

Community development is hard work, especially when resources are limited. That’s why FoodShare offers the Supportive Partnerships Platform, where community-led food initiatives leverage FoodShare’s existing assets to realize the change they seek.

We provide tailored support to 10+ BIPOC-led grassroots organizations each year.

Via Supportive Partnerships, FoodShare:

  • provides mentorship, advice, and guidance in problem-solving for groups that share FoodShare’s mission
  • builds capacity via strategic planning, anti-oppression training, and support developing governance structures
  • offers financial management services (track and monitor grant installments, process payroll, etc)
  • shares resources (vehicles, workspace, insurance, event support)

Groups seeking to join the platform should be:

  • self determined organization/group
  • led by people experiencing marginalization in the food system (i.e. Black, Indigenous, people of colour, and/or newcomer communities
  • working on food justice issues
  • working on income-based interventions to combat food insecurity
  • based and working in Toronto

Why Supportive Partnerships?

Systemic inequities affect access to basic needs like food. While FoodShare’s scope isn’t limitless, we can offer resources to groups who have already identified the change they’d like to see in their communities. It’s all about developing community-led and self-determined solutions to address racism and exclusion in the food system.
