Fresh Roots’ Board of Directors have the opportunity to influence Good Food For All here in Vancouver and BC! We are looking for new board members to help govern and guide. The role falls into three core responsibilities: strategic (setting priorities and monitoring performance), generative (big picture questions and big picture thinking) and fiduciary (stewardship of assets and accountability).

We are currently looking for people with backgrounds and experience in:

  • Fundraising (developing fundraising strategies; new campaigns)
  • Non-Profit Board Development (participating in the development of Fresh Roots’ organizational capacity)
  • BC Education System (Board of Education, district administration, public/private school, teacher)
  • Finance (accounting, budgeting, banking or investment)
  • Health / Nutrition (public health interest, nutritionist or physician/pediatrician)
  • Chef and/or Foodie (locally grown and seasonal cuisine, embedded within the local culinary community)
  • Marketing / Communications (experienced and loves guiding impact organizations on how to best share their story with the world)

Previous involvement in non-profit organizational development, landscape architecture, education, food literacy, agriculture, would be considered an asset.

  1. Hello Fresh Roots!
    Happy to introduce myself as a candidate for a new board member. I am a BA graduate of Tyndale University’s Business Administration-Non-profit Management program and recently moved to Vancouver. I have a strong passion for food sovereignty and social justice across the globe and a hospitality/chef background. Since living in Vancouver I’ve had the wonderful opportunity to work for and manage Sole Food Street Farms in Olympic Village, where we partnered with Fresh Roots on many occasions. Recently, I have stepped into a new role as a Donor Relations Associate for Ecojustice, an Canada-wide environmental protection non-profit. I would be happy to contribute my skills and knowledge on the board of directors at Fresh Roots. Looking forward to discussing this opportunity further.
    Thank you,


    • Kaitlyn! It’s so great to see you here and this is awesome that you’re interested in joining us! We’ll reach out via email soon. ~Camille
