Growing Chefs! Ontario is Hiring
The Growing Chefs! Ontario (GCO) mission is to change the way children and families learn about and develop healthy relationships with food. Our belief is that engaging food education programs for children and families can catalyze the evolution of a healthier, empowered community that is engaged with its food system.
GCO will hire four (4) Food Education Assistants for June-August to partner in this mission.
Food Education Assistants will support the delivery and development of all GCO food education programs throughout the summer months. These programs include in-person day camps, virtual school programs, webinars, virtual and in-person community cooking classes, take-out events, and more.
A Food Education Assistant’s primary responsibility will be to work directly with children and youth (ages 3-18) to facilitate fun, creative and meaningful learning opportunities in our programs. Food Education Assistants will also support the logistical and administrative aspects of these programs, such as registration, program planning, health and safety protocols and participant tracking/reporting for funding. Finally, Food Education Assistants will embody the communal attitude of our organization by supporting any GCO program as needed, be that fundraising events, donor and volunteer relations, and/or marketing and social media responsibilities.
Candidates for this position should share GCO’s curiosity about food systems as well as food literacy, and desire to share their learning with others. If you enjoy facilitating unique programs for young people, learning new skills, and enjoying good food (of course), this may be the ideal summer position for you!
