“Volunteers don’t get paid, not because they’re worthless, but because they’re priceless.”
- Sherry Anderson
Get Involved! Please join us!
There are a number of ways you can get involved with the
Carteret Local Food Network by volunteering your time to become a team player.
CLFN is actively seeking a volunteer to assist us in finding grants that will support our mission. This volunteer would seek out funding opportunities from private and public sources, complete and submitting the paperwork, and writing updates to the grantor as required.
We receive multiple grant offerings each week but need someone who supports our goals to review and sort through our opportunities. Please contact Stacy to discuss further.
Website/ Facebook Designer
Some of our local farmers and fishers are too busy in the field and on the water to learn how to get connected; can you help them? Can you help us?
Food events/Set-Up/Clean Up
Behind the Scenes - know how to wash pots and pans? expert at clearing dishes? can you fold napkins? You're hired! (so to speak). We task friends with setting up tables and chairs, wiping tablecloths, setting out napkins and tableware, assisting chefs, serving at a buffet line, bussing plates, folding it all away again. Sometimes your reward is a free meal, sometimes a pat on the back, but you are always appreciated. Please contact Caroline to help.
Help to shape the face
of CLFN to the public, design printable materials, keep information current on our website, distribution of brochures. Contact Stacy to join the team.
Like bossing people around? Like finding smiles on new faces? Help us coordinate all the potential jobs and populate them with new energy.
To help our community gardens operate on a tight budget, the Carteret Local Food Network plans to assist them with your donations; we are still
looking for: hoses, hand tools, seed, fencing,
deliveries of mulch/ soil/ hay, construction of
raised beds, signs, compost bins.
