Food Secure Student Manitoba (FSSMB)
APPLICATION DEADLINE: August 10, 2020
FSSMB is a call to action in response to a substantial number of students of many age groups identifying as marginally to severely food insecure in Manitoba – especially during times of societal crises and states of emergency.
A lack of access to proper nutrition disempowers and marginalizes communities, impacting their ability to prepare youth for successes in their personal, academic and professional lives. This perpetuates systemic inequities, leaving certain communities at a disadvantage. FSSMB strongly condemn this reality and have dedicated our mission to remedy this issue. They have only uncovered the tip of the iceberg in identifying this vulnerable population and as such, they have decided to establish a non-profit organization to address this issue directly, bringing together siloed organizations in an effort to eliminate severe student food insecurity in Manitoba to the best of their ability.
FSSMB have reached the point where they are ready to establish an Executive Committee of students to further their goals. They are looking for individuals at all levels of education with experience in the following areas (but not limited to):
2. Food systems and food security issues
3. Being on a Committee and/or Board
4. Project Management
Roles and positions will be appointed together, facilitated by this coordinating team, after assessing individual strengths and skill-sets. FSSMB look to you, their future candidates, to assist them in nurturing the organization from the roots upwards to help the initiative reach its full potential.
In an effort to ensure representation from a diverse and appropriate range of voices, FSSMB strongly encourages and welcomes the BIPOC and 2SLGBTQIA+ community to apply and know that this is an inclusive space with room for all voices.
1. Executive Committee Co-Chair (2 positions)
2. Treasurer (1 position)
3. Secretary (1 position)
4. Events Coordinators (1-2 positions)
