Board & Bylaws

Join our board!

BFR is looking for new board members who are passionate about food justice, Boulder Food Rescue’s mission and vision, and giving back to their community. The BFR Board is unique and non-traditional with a wide range of skills and experiences. Every board member may have a different commitment, so upon joining the board, the roles and responsibilities of each board member will be discussed.

The board is responsible for: fundraising, maintaining the bylaws, advising and setting long-term organizational goals, and guiding financial management of the organization.
We ask board members to contribute at least eight hours of work to the organization each month. Board members are required to attend a two hour board meeting monthly, and one annual retreat.
