Farms for Life ensures the viability of local sustainable farms and provides fresh produce to members of our community who are underserved.


Farms for Life is an all-volunteer run organization that relies on the dedication of our volunteer board and committee members. We are looking for a volunteer to join our board as the Communication Chair. In this role you would lead the creation of content and manage communications for Farms for Life including: quarterly newsletter content and design via Mailchimp, website requests/updates (working with our web master), and blog posts/articles. This role also manages the communications committee volunteers, attends monthly board meetings, and supports collaboration with other chair positions such as Social Media, Resources, Fundraising, and Operations. This is a minimum one year volunteer commitment (a copy of the board member agreement will be provided for your review before acceptance of the position).

We do not have our own facility so volunteers work from home and attend monthly board meetings via ZOOM and quarterly potlucks and get togethers (once allowed) located in King or Snohomish County.

Please send your resume and a brief description about your interest in our mission. A complete position description and board agreement will be provided. Thank you!

About FARMS FOR LIFE

PO BOX 1034, WOODINVILLE, WA 98072, US

Mission Statement

Farms for Life ensures the viability of local sustainable farms and provides fresh produce to members of our community who are underserved.

Description

Farms for Life plays an important role in supporting local farmers and connecting local, farm fresh produce to people in need of healthy food. FFL began in 2009 by a local Woodinville farmer who hated leaving unsold produce in the fields to be tilled in and decided to ask her customers and CSA members if they would help come up with an idea to both support small local farmers and to feed the community in need of fresh food. Farms for Life was created as a non-profit in 2010, and in 2020 we purchased over 22,000 pounds of produce! We strive to constantly grow and support more farmers and donate more produce each year! Read more about our history here: https://www.farmsforlife.org/about-us

How we work: We raise funds to purchase surplus produce from our farm partners and donate the fresh produce to community agencies, both in the Snohomish and King County areas. The community agencies that we partner with serve populations who otherwise might not have access to fresh produce. They in turn either distribute the fresh produce to their clients farmers market style, or prepare healthy meals for their clients. See all of our current farm and agency partners at FarmsforLife.org!

Thank you for your interest in getting involved and supporting our work. We look forward to hearing from you soon!
