JCFC is currently looking for member-owners to fill trustee vacancies.
While no single characteristic defines an ideal member of the board, the Co-op is seeking nominees who are—through a commitment to our Mission and Values—willing to take on board responsibilities (as outlined in the board contract) and help grow our Co-op!
Some useful experience, education, or skills might include prior work on a volunteer board; financial, business, or legal background management, supervisory, or organizational skills; negotiation, facilitation, and conflict resolution skills; collective/cooperative experience.
Procedures and other related paperwork can be found on the JC Food Co-op Website, by clicking here. Please note that we are electing new trustees off the usual schedule. Applications are due by December 20th, to be voted on at the January General Meeting. The Governance Committee will be nominating any member-owner who is interested and fulfills the basic requirements so send your application (completed Form A) over!
Have any questions? Drop the Governance a line at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thursday, November 21, 2013 – 6:30 p.m.
Come join us at the Warehouse Cafe (140 Bay Street in the Powerhouse Arts District in Downtown Jersey City) on Thursday, November 21, as we discuss, Stuffed and Starved: The Hidden Battle for the World Food System by Raj Patel. Just in time for Thanksgiving!
“It is difficult to pick up a newspaper without reading about increasing food crises in much of the world or the epidemic of obesity in America. Raj Patel argues that both are symptoms of the corporate food monopoly. From seed to store to plate, Stuffed and Starved explains the steps to regain control of the global food economy, stop the exploitation of farmers and consumers, and rebalance global sustenance.”
Interested in your local food system, health, and some of the food issues raised by Patel in his book? Don’t have time to read it? Join us anyway for what should be great discussion.
Plus we’ll swap recipes on appropriately stuffed things–cabbage, peppers, tomatoes, etc! So bring your favorite recipe along.
