Are you passionate about making access to healthy food more universal? We’re now seeking volunteers for a variety of dynamic 2018 positions that support our farmers market vendors, market operations and programs, and community outreach, as well as our community kitchen users and healthy eating education efforts. We ask that both new and returning volunteers read the position descriptions carefully prior to submitting the volunteer application. We have added many new positions!
You can help create a healthier, more inclusive food system in the Takoma/Langley Crossroads.
