Volunteer Opportunity at "Recipe For Change" Gala Fundraiser

Introduction

Recipe for Change is a celebration of food that supports FoodShare’s innovative work in schools. 

A tasting adventure unlike any other, the Recipe for Change fundraiser gala includes a full meal composed of tasting plates and beverage accompaniments, plus unheard-of opportunities to mingle with 30 Chefs seldom found in the same room, let alone contributing to the same meal. 

Add the opportunity to taste 20 VQA wines, 6 local beers, and more. The event is an amazing and wonderful opportunity to support FoodShare’s work to create a healthy future.

The regular price of attending this event is $125 per person. 

Volunteer Opportunity

This year, the Toronto Social Group has been approached to provide volunteers to perform a number of activities at this phenomenal fundraiser.  This is a wonderful opportunity to be a part of supporting FoodShare’s work to create a healthy future.

I would like to acknowledge Nancy Leclerc (Nancelita), one of our long standing members, without whom we would not have had this opportunity. Nancy is also the event host for this event. Please contact her directly if you should have any questions.

    No worries Nancelita! We know you have way more on your plate just now getting everything together, then just the volunteers. You know you have us and in the end it will all get sorted.

    Please be aware that when you post a comment on an event page, an email is sent to everyone who has RSVP'd for that event. This generates a lot of emails. If your comment is directed specifically to the organizer, please do not post comments. Instead use the email function of Meetup to contact Nancelita which will make sure that your message is received only by her and not by everyone else.

    I'm attending the event as a ticketholder but, since I LOVE Foodshare and will be onsite anyways, have put myself on the waitlist in case you need an extra body on short notice for a partial shift during the event or to stay on afterwards for clean up.
