We’re looking for candidates to join our passionate and dynamic Board of Directors.

We’re looking for people with knowledge of the Depot and food security to volunteer for a 3-year term. The Depot’s board meets formally 6-8 times a year and the time commitment is approximately 5-10 hours a month, depending on what the Board is working on and the load of the committee(s) the member sits on.

  • who bring an interest in anti-oppression work
  • who may not have prior board experience

There are also other skills that would help us strengthen our work:

  • fundraising
  • communications
  • government relations
  • understanding of the community sector
  • urban planning/real estate
