Call for Volunteers: Fraser Health and Sprouting Chefs!

Check out these volunteer opportunities coming up with Fraser Health Authority and Sprouting Chefs!

Fraser Health Authority

Don't know what it costs to eat healthy in your community? The Fraser Health Authority and the Dieticians in the Fraser Valley needs your help in finding out that information. You can help contribute to the 2015 Cost of Eating project.

To volunteer, you will need to:

1) Watch a webinar on how to collect this data, and
2) Choose which Health Regions to volunteer within. You can work in pairs or by yourself.

The information needs to be collected between Monday, May 25, 2015 to Friday June 5, 2015.

The total number of hours can vary depending on the number of stores you choose to visit. Recording of prices takes an average of 1.5 to 2.0 hours. Your efforts will help Fraser Health better understand how much it costs to eat across the various regions in BC.
