Communications Assistant – Not Far from the Tree
Not Far From The Tree (NFFTT), a project of MakeWay Charitable Society, puts Toronto’s abundance of
local fruit to use by picking and sharing the harvest via a one-third model. NFFTT has picked and
shared over 180,000 pounds of fruit since 2008, and schedules over 300 fruit picks per season. Not Far
From The Tree builds community, fosters environmental sustainability and enables access to an
existing supply of healthy, local food.
We’re seeking a creative, skilled communicator for the position of Communications Assistant to help
generate content and graphics across NFFTT’s communications channels including social media, print
materials, and website. Working with the Project Team, you’ll produce engaging communication
content that highlights the activities, achievements and stories of NFFTT’s fruit picking program and
community events. You’ll help promote NFFTT programs and events, engage our constituents and
boost follower engagement. In addition, this role will support NFFTT’s fundraising efforts by designing
impact reports and assisting in grant research.
