The Vancouver Food Coop Needs Volunteers

A note from Kristie Lemmon, the new VFC volunteer coordinator

Get Involved

One of the ways you can help grow the Vancouver Food Coop – be a Volunteer!!!!

Hello fellow Vancouver Food Coop owner,

As the new volunteer coordinator for VFC, I thought I would introduce myself before offering you the opportunity to be a volunteer. My name is Kristie Lemmon. I have been involved with volunteer and/or not for profit organizations for over 45 years. Whether it is recruiting volunteers, chairing non-profits, raising money, planning events, or soliciting donations – I enjoy it all. I approach each opportunity with enthusiasm and have always had the belief that I can make a difference. So, let’s make a difference and grow the Vancouver Food Coop together.

Volunteering is EASY!!! Just send an email to volunteer@vancouverfood.coop. Your explanation of what area/areas you feel you would like to make a contribution in can be detailed or brief. If you are not sure what opportunities are available, there is a partial list below. You may see a way your skills may be utilized by the coop that is not list – please contact me. I look forward to hearing from you.

Share the Vision – Be a Volunteer
