The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Food matters for your local community's health, environment, and economy!
Join our team to help provide fresh, healthy produce to Fairfax County residents straight from local farms.
We are looking for Market Masters and Assistant Market Masters to manage and evaluate the Fairfax County Farmer Markets once per week for a six-month season.
This volunteer opportunity is a fun way to help bring fresh, healthy, local produce to your community and livelihood to local farmers. All Fairfax County markets overseen by the Park Authority are run by our local Market Master vounteers. It is these volunteers who make it possible for the market to function, providing on the ground support to ensure markets run smoothly.
We are looking for 2-3 farmers market volunteers (Market Masters & Assistant Market Master) per market (11 in Fairfax County) to oversee the weekly operations and provide insight into ways in which markets can be improved. Volunteers should be outgoing local food enthusiasts, who enjoy connecting community members with local farmers.
