We are hiring a Kitchen Coordinator to guide local food processing at our food hub, The Stir! 


The Kitchen Coordinator is a permanent, part-time position at ~18 hours/week and will be responsible for supporting food processing in the Kamloops region, by facilitating the day to day operations, cleaning and maintenance of The Stir Kitchen. The Stir is a decentralized network of services and infrastructure, with its headquarters, retail “Stirfront” and full-time processing kitchen located at 185 Royal Ave. The long-term vision for The Stir is to foster a thriving regional agriculture and food sector that is a significant contributor to the local economy in our region by connecting local entrepreneurs with the support they need to create, grow, and scale local food businesses. The coordinator will ensure smooth day to day kitchen operations by fostering a collaborative environment that prioritizes high standards for food safety and cleanliness.

The coordinator works within the Kamloops Food Policy Council’s collaborative leadership model which capitalizes on the expertise within our organization. This model mirrors the flexible and nimble structure of our network, and furthermore, it helps to create shared knowledge, diversity of knowledge, and increased resiliency. The coordinator works collaboratively with Board directors, other KFPC employees and contracted project leads.


The Kamloops Food Policy Council values diversity and is committed to providing an inclusive work environment. We are looking for qualified individuals at all job levels who represent the diversity of the people participating in the food system. We encourage applications from Indigenous peoples, individuals of all genders and sexual orientations, origin and ethnic affiliations, abilities, ages, and religions.
