Two Good Food Box sites - Markdale and Lucknow - are looking for volunteer site coordinators to manage and support a team of volunteers to deliver the services of the Good Food Box. The volunteer site coordinator acts as a local contact, organizes orders and works with volunteers to pack boxes on pick up day. The position requires about 10 hours every month.

“It feels good to spend my energy for a good cause, and it also gives me the opportunity to meet people from different cultures.” says Walkerton site coordinator Marita Hagedorn. “The Good Food Box depends on volunteers in order to maintain affordability and sustainability. They are invaluable to the growth and success of the program.”

Orders for the Lucknow box are currently on hold until a new coordinator is found.  Markdale orders will continue as usual. Packing days occur on the second Friday of the month at Lucknow Christian Reform Church and fourth Tuesday of the month in Markdale at Annesley United Church.

Contact Laura Needham if you are interested in becoming a volunteer site coordinator (l.needham@publichealthgreybruce.ca ).
