BOARD POSITIONS

Positions: Advisory Board Members (volunteers)
Type: advisory board (unpaid)
Organization: Stone Soup Network
Location: Toronto, Ottawa or anywhere in Ontario

The Stone Soup Network is seeking volunteer Advisory Board Members to devote roughly 10 hours per month to the Stone Soup Network and its various projects. All meetings are being held virtually, via zoom, due to the COVID pandemic. 

We are actively seeking out people from diverse backgrounds to foster and encourage an atmosphere of inclusive participation from all people living in our communities, across Canada. We are encouraging the following groups: Persons with Disabilities, Black, Indigenous and people of colour to apply, as first consideration will be given to candidates self-identifying as part of these groups.

What is the Stone Soup Network?

The Stone Soup Network is focused on creating long-term impact by helping to build healthier, more socially cohesive communities. In the past year Stone Soup Network provided more than 1000 gifts of much needed products and services to economically challenged families and individuals, thanks to the local businesses who donated items such as pharmacy gift cards for isolated seniors, and new books for homebound, eager young readers. Our online database keeps a list of donated products (movie tickets, clothes, registrations for recreational camps etc.) and services (legal, dental, personal, financial). We work with an amazing team of people (social workers, health providers, religious leaders etc.) who help make the connection between the donations and the people who need them most.

The Stone Soup Network garners support from local businesses who operate in their local communities. It’s easy for them to bring their products to their consumers because their consumers are nearby. By cutting down on these miles, people are reducing the environmental impact of transportation. 
"Getting vouchers has been of great help for my family, because I had a chance to get organic products, and eat healthier”

“I saw my child laughing!" The summer camp "was truly an experience that my child desperately needed in order to heal. Thank you Stone Soup!”
