About the Depot
Founded in 1986, The Depot Community Food Centre is a community-based, non-profit organization that works collaboratively with its community to address the root causes of hunger and poverty in NDG and the surrounding areas? in a manner that ensures dignity, community engagement and the development of human potential.
At the Depot, we offer programming to support the food security and healthy eating habits of youth, families and individuals. These activities include food distribution, community meals, kitchen workshops, after-school programs, gardens and farmer’s markets.
We are currently looking to hire a Community Worker to contribute to our Resource Department.
In this newly created position, the Community Worker will help the Depot’s resource team in its efforts to work with participants across all of our programs to ensure that they are supported beyond food relief and linked with Depot and community resources.
The Community Worker will be available to participants via visits to all Depot programs and one-on-one appointments. They will work to connect participants to a variety of supports and resources both within and outside of the Depot.
The Community Worker will work with the Depot community to increase awareness of poverty, inequality and food systems issues and create opportunities for low income community members to lead in a push for social change. They will also work with participants to build skills they need to advocate for themselves and for their communities.
