We need a volunteer who is familiar with Squarespace, Facebook Events and Eventbrite to add, update and manage events.
You will be in charge of digging up local and virtual events that align with good, clean, fair food for all. Food equity, food justice, sustainable farming, food workers, chefs, indigenous food ways, and more. Your work will connect our community to impactful events happening in the Twin Cities. You'll also decide which Slow Food USA and Slow Food International events to add to our local calendars.
On a task-based level, you'll add events to our Squarespace website (slowfoodmn.org/events-calendar), to our Facebook page, and to our Eventbrite. You'll post about events to get the word out, and make sure that they're included in newsletters.
There is an enormous opportunity for growth into a leadership role within the chapter, and ultimately the larger national and international organization. Through your work you'll have consistent opportunities to connecting with local, national, and international food leaders that are part of the Slow Food movement.
It’s our mission to promote healthy farm ecosystems, awareness of the circular food economy, and our ability to support local organizations doing meaningful work in the food equity space. We’re here to provide Minnesotans with opportunities to volunteer time, connect with like-minded individuals, develop skills to be advocates for food justice, and donate. Together we can make an impact and change our food system so that it works for all people.
The Slow Food movement began in 1986, when the people of Italy protested against the first McDonald's in Rome. It can be most succinctly described as the opposite of fast food, but it encompasses so much more. The joy of growing, cooking, eating, and sharing food with the responsibility to produce it in harmony with nature and humanity.
We are a chapter in an international Slow Food movement, with organizations on every continent, all working to foster good, clean, fair food for all. We have been working to advance Slow Food in Minnesota since 1999. We hope you'll join us in making the food system work better for everyone in our community.
We'll work with your schedule.
This is a Virtual Opportunity, with no fixed address.
