We are actively seeking new board members. Check out our Board or Committee Interest form to learn more or apply!
FFS is run by a staff of 7 (and growing!), and up to 15 active Board Members, who participate in monthly board meetings and at least one board committee. Farmer Foodshare’s Board of Directors plays a crucial role in the oversight, strategic direction and support of our mission. Plus they roll their sleeves up and help out where needed – from events, to special projects to fundraising – each of our board members brings specific skills, expertise and life experiences to the table, helping our organization thrive.
In addition to the 15 board seats, there are also several board-led committees that non-board members may sit on, for which we are also actively seeking members. Current and future committees include: Executive, Finance, Governance, Development, Policy/Advocacy, and Justice, Equity, Diversity & Inclusion (JEDI). While some folks apply and join the board straight away, some people start off by joining a committee. We’ll work with you to see what might be a good fit as our needs are always changing!
We are committed to having our staff and Board of Directors reflect the diversity of the communities we serve. FFS is committed to growing as an anti-racist organization. These values are essential to our organizational ethics and should be embraced by any incoming board or committee members.
