We’re looking for new board members!

Squamish Fresh is a volunteer run co-op which works hard to provide affordable fruit and veg for our community. We work together to address:

  1. Food security - We believe everyone should have access to healthy produce, every single week. 

  2. Community - We want to foster an open, inclusive and fun community so people feel more connected, supported and see how they can help others.

  3. Local sourcing - Where possible, we try to source locally to support local farmers and reduce emissions associated with importing goods.

If you would be excited to fill one of the following roles, please email info@squamishfresh.com with details of the skills, experience and passion you could bring to the team. 

*Note - All positions require a commitment of 2hrs per week.
