Local food charity seeks two board members

Mar 14, 2023

Food for Love is seeking two new board members to join the charity during 2023. Based in Wānaka, the organisation seeks people who can support their strategic growth.

Founded in 2016 by Rebecca (Bex) Sarginson and Louise Carnie, Food For Love is a charitable organisation which provides a free home cooked meal to people in need in the Upper Clutha region.

Recipients are generally going through a challenging time, such as an illness, bereavement, relationship or financial difficulties and are nominated by someone in the community.

Several of these challenges are often exacerbated by the Upper Clutha’s unique location, as many people have no family or other support around them here.

Food For Love’s vision is to nourish our community and nurture social connection through nutritious food. The charity relies on gifts of food and an army of volunteers to deliver home cooked food to those without a meal if they need one.

Expressions of interest are sought from those who have previous governance experience, communication and marketing expertise and experience of fundraising. Individuals can get in touch directly at [email protected] before the end of March 2023.
