About The Depot Community Food Centre

Founded in 1986, The Depot Community Food Centre (formerly the NDG Food Depot) is a community-based non-profit organization that works collaboratively with other community partners to address issues of food security in NDG and the surrounding areas.

About the Good Food Markets

The Depot’s Good Food Markets were developed in response to a call from community members for better access to fresh fruits and vegetables. The markets offer a variety of fresh, local, organic and non-organic, produce and ‘seconds’ in season. The Markets are inclusive and welcoming places where all are invited to shop and enjoy the ambiance (snacks, conversation, and community). Last summer our markets were adapted to respect security measures in preventing the spread of Covid19. They were very popular. They will run again this summer, 3 times a week in the Walkley, st. Raymonds, and Benny Farm neighbourhoods of NDG.

We are looking to hire a Market Coordinator to run our current markets, to support their evolution and to deepen their reach and community impact.

The Depot is committed to creating a workplace as diverse as the communities we serve and thus strongly encourages people from our diverse communities and all people who experience marginalization to apply and to self-identify in their cover letter.
