Then consider joining our Operations Committee where you can share your time, talent and network to help people and the planet.
Food for Life Halton & Hamilton is the regional leader in rescuing and distributing GOOD fresh and frozen food. We support the community by providing healthy food to a network of non-profits and partners who offer food support programs. Food for Life is a thought leader in the space, built on a unique supply chain model that is driven by environmental sustainability.

You bring some great operational leadership skills, a desire to grow, and a can-do attitude. You may have 1 year or 30 years of experience, we are not fussed as for the right person with the right skills.
Committee work reports to the Board of Directors through the Committee Chair. Participation on a Committee carries no legal risk or obligations to the members unless they are also a member of the Board of Directors.
