Interested in joining the Eat Alberta team?

We're looking for volunteers!


After a successful Eat Alberta 2017: Back to Basics, we are looking forward to expanding our event repertoire for the rest of 2017 and planning our flagship Eat Alberta 2018 event. To help us realize our future vision, we’re looking for some food-loving, engaged, energetic and team-player volunteers to join our board.

We are an entirely volunteer-run, not-for-profit organization whose purpose is to get the word out about Alberta’s diverse foodscape. Naturally, this means celebrating the food itself, but it also includes championing the hard-working producers and the people who work just as hard to prepare it.  The food grown in our lovely province has so many stories to tell and we want to help tell them in a fun and hands-on environment.

If this sounds like an opportunity that you can get excited about, then we would love to have you apply to join our board by emailing us at team@eatalberta.ca by June 9, 2017.

We are currently looking for new members with the following skillsets:

  • Event planning
  • Securing sponsorships
  • Volunteer coordination
  • Communications

Please provide a short description of your relevant skills, your previous volunteer experience and why you are interested in being a part of Eat Alberta. If we feel that you could be a great fit with our team, we’ll get in touch to arrange an interview.

Thank you for your interest in Eat Alberta. We look forward to meeting you!
