Volunteer Coordinator Needed for Sauble Good Food Box

The Sauble Beach Family Health Team and Grey Bruce Health Unit are looking for a volunteer site coordinator to support a team of volunteers to deliver the services of the Sauble 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. 

“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.” says Public Health Dietitian, Laura Needham, who works with the program. 

Orders for the Sauble Good Food Box are currently on hold until a new coordinator is found. Packing days occur on the third Tuesday of the month at the Sauble Family Health Team. Contact Laura Needham if you are interested in becoming a volunteer site coordinator (l.needham@publichealthgreybruce.ca). 

The Good Food Box is a volunteer powered, community-based program to improve access to quality food by making fresh produce available at a low cost. There are 19 Good Food Box sites across Grey Bruce. Visit Good Food Box for more information and locations.
