About Us

Our Board

Our board

At Open Food Network, we work to build better food systems. We were founded in Australia, but are now active in more than 20 countries around the world. Our board has overseen this significant growth, with oversight of both the global and the Australian organisation. The board does not have oversight of each individual country’s operations. 

Join our board

We are working on creating mature and strong governance across our organisation to match our increasing complexity. We are currently receiving applications for new board members.

We are seeking up to 5 Directors, and are specifically recruiting for a Chairperson and Treasurer. Our board roles are unpaid, and require a commitment of around 6 hours per month. Meetings are primarily held remotely. We are committed to diversifying our board and encourage applications from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, people with English as a second language, and people living across regional areas of Australia.

Please download our Board Prospectus, and if you’re keen to be considered, please apply here. Applications close on 17 December 2021, with new board members to commence in 2022. 

If you have further questions or would like more information, please contact the Open Food Network at people@openfoodnetwork.org.au.
