Just Food, in partnership with the Ottawa Food Policy Council, is looking for an experienced Youth Coordinator to support the development and activities of a new Ottawa Youth Food Policy Council (OYFPC). The purpose of the OYFPC is to create a forum for youth in Ottawa to advance the food justice issues that are of greatest importance, identified by them.
The Ottawa Youth Food Policy Council will be a volunteer space for youth (aged 30 and under) to add their voices and solutions to the dialogue around food security and food justice issues affecting residents in Ottawa, and to advocate in governance and institutional spaces for more just and sustainable food and farming systems. We know that the work of strengthening our food system cannot be done alone and that we are undoubtedly stronger together. The work of the OYFPC will be supported by the Ottawa Food Policy Council, and will seek to work collaboratively with and support those engaged in similar and/or complementary work across Ottawa and coast-to-coast-to-coast.
Just Food welcomes the wide range of lived and academic experiences, viewpoints, and backgrounds that youth in Ottawa have to offer.
