The Community Coordination project began engaging the health and social service groups on July 14, 2013 through a Golden Food Bank Society lunch meeting at The Island Restaurant.
While the Barb Davies' presentation on Food Bank's of the Columbia Basin focused on the Golden Food Bank's findings from other Basin communities, they finished with some really tough questions for Golden's health and social service groups:
"What would Golden look like if there was no food bank?
What would we as a community need to do?"
These are great questions for all organizations to ask of themselves (staff and volunteers) to test if their organization is the best vehicle for a particular service and to see if there are other organizations out there who need help themselves.
What would Golden look like if there your organization didn't exist?
What would we as a community need to do?
The presentation from the Golden Food Bank and the Community Coordination project can be found on GoldenLoom.ca.
Golden Community Resources Society strives to capture and share knowledge that will help non profits serve their communities more efficiently.
