These portfolios include coordination of finance, administration, and volunteer coordination, as well as summer portfolios including food bank coordination, garden coordination, and meals on wheels coordination. All tasks that fall outside of these portfolios are negotiated at collective meetings.

Weekly recurring tasks include but are not limited to: maintaining a clean, vegan, and nut-free kitchen that meets hygiene standards at all times, recruiting and coordinating volunteers for our daily servings, coordinating solidarity servings during the year, coordinating food purchasing, and coordinating educational opportunities such as workshops and skillshares.
