Description

IMAN is looking for volunteers to support IMAN’s holistic health and food ecosystems work through its 2018 weekly Fresh Beats & Eats Famers Market.


These volunteers will be an integral piece in supporting the connection between IMAN’s Health Center and IMAN’s Organizing and Advocacy goals of providing greater access to fresh, nutrient-dense foods, encouraging healthier lifestyles, and advocating for food justice. Activities can include, but are not limited to:

  • set up
  • break down
  • community engagement
  • vendor support
  • working with the Health Center to conduct health screenings
  • support Farmer’s Market attendees in making appointments and navigating the market
  • disseminating information regarding specific health challenges and ways to prevent them
  • participating in healthy food demonstrations.


Volunteers are needed every Friday, starting July 20th and ending October 26th. Morning (9am to 2pm) and afternoon shifts are available (2pm to 7pm). Whether you can participate every Friday or just one, we would love to have you!
