La plata county food systems & health Equity coalition
The La Plata County Food System & Health Equity Coalition is working to advance equity within our food system by increasing equitable participation & voices of our BIPOC, senior, geographically isolated, low income, and disabled residents within our food system, increasing access to healthy, affordable food, and ensuring that community Food Assistance organizations are informed by and aligned with our community’s diverse needs. We have received a two year grant to launch community-led efforts to achieve these outcomes and are currently seeking Workgroup Facilitators eager to engage in our work to advance an equitable, secure food system for all La Plata County residents.
Join us in our action-oriented, systems-based efforts to build a just and resilient food system in the Four Corners Region! We are currently seeking community members to fill the available Workgroup Member positions. Find descriptions of each workgroup below!
Our ideal candidates will have experience with and/or passion for the workgroup’s area of focus, and will be able to devote 4 hours per month to the Coalition’s mission to reduce barriers to accessing nutritious and affordable food. Each workgroup member can receive a stipend of $20 per hour for their contribution. Workgroup members have the option to opt out of this hourly stipend in order to open up the opportunity for another member of our community to participate.
We urge you to apply if you are interested in contributing to your community by sharing your perspective and inciting real change.
