The Food Rescue team provides daily administrative supports and frontline service for the No More Starving Artists (NMSA) food rescue program. Working in small groups, youth in these roles develop confidence and begin to master skills used in their participation in the workplace. Our waterfall mentorship model means you will help others to learn things you are already an expert in and others will help you learn things you are working on yourself. These roles are progressive over the summer and youth are afforded as much scope and responsibility as they are willing and able to handle. It's a great way to 'level up' in a team setting where your voice and opinions genuinely make a difference daily.
