Additional Information

Bread & Roses, the primary outreach ministry of Trinity Episcopal Church, is “transforming the ways we acquire, cook, and relate to the food we eat”. We work in the Charlottesville community to support teaching the individual skills of cooking, gardening, and nutrition choices, while paying attention to the larger issues of shifting toward a more equitable and accessible food system. We work to facilitate these shifts–seed by seed and bite by bite–by using our outdoor space for organic demonstration gardens and our commercial kitchen for classes and micro food businesses, and by collaborating to share our resources with other community organizations.

We are seeking a Steering Committee Chair. In coordination with our Program Coordinator, the Chair will bring their energy, skills, and talent to running an organized, action-oriented Steering Committee. This is an unpaid position. This person does not have to be religiously affiliated.

Does The Organization have Directors & Officer's insurance?

No
