The CRC I Regent Park Community Food Centre is an innovative, impactful, collaborative mid-sized, multiservice agency that has proudly served the Regent Park and surrounding neighbourhood for over 50 years. In 2012, the CRC opened a beautiful new building and a new chapter in its history. Our building has a 5000-square foot community hub of program space and we host the only not-for-profit social housing in Regent Park. We are home to the Regent Park Community Food Centre (RPCFC) and its suite of high-impact programs, in partnership with Community Food Centres Canada, where people come together to cook, grow, share, and advocate for good food. The CRC provides innovative solutions which help residents of Regent Park and the surrounding neighbourhoods enrich community well-being, improve economic conditions, realize their potential and direct their lives. We prioritize our efforts toward individuals and families facing barriers (e.g., caused by poverty, inequity, discrimination).
We are looking for an experienced and passionate Community Chef to lead CRC I RPCFC’s Meal Program through the operation of our commercial kitchen, serving 6 meals each week for up to 250 people each meal. The ideal candidate is someone who is passionate about good food—they are committed to providing nutritious, delicious, ethically sourced, culturally inspired meals in a dignified way. The Community Chef has an understanding of the power of food and the many positive impacts around health and social wellbeing, as well as its limitations. The Community Chef celebrates the diverse food traditions of Regent Park while possessing a critical analysis of food systems. The successful candidate has strong leadership skills balanced with an ability to create a supportive environment in the kitchen for a diverse team of staff, volunteers and community members that enables them to develop their culinary skills in an inclusive and welcoming atmosphere and loves to teach in formal and informal programs.
