The City of Toronto needs local residents to serve on high-profile, challenging, and exciting boards of directors for City agencies and corporations. Being on a City board is a unique opportunity to contribute to your community, collaborate with others, and gain valuable skills and experience by helping to support a public service.
Board members provide oversight of their agency or corporation, bring a community perspective to board discussions, and help to reflect the needs and interests of Torontonians. Members of a board may include Members of Council, residents, business owners, and community leaders.
To serve on a City board, you need to be a resident of the City of Toronto and at least 18 years of age. Relatives of Members of Council and employees of the City and its agencies and corporations are generally not eligible for appointment to City boards.
As a friend of PARC, your support matters. This is because healthy meals do so much more than fill mouths. They begin conversations that build relationships, fight poverty and combat the stigma of mental health.
Amazingly, we do what we do using 90-97% donated foods. The amount PARC spends on purchased food fluctuates from month-to-month depending on the quality and quantity of donations from partners like Daily Bread, Second Harvest.
That is why your support is so big. Your support means more purchasing power for our kitchen. It means more of your neighbours can choose to access healthy and nutritious meals. And it means more food security in our community and less need for food charity across our city.
