Position: Overnight Food Bin Cleaner
Organization: Mama Earth Organics
Location: Toronto (near O'Connor & St Clair E.)


About Us:

We're creating an alternative, locally-based, food system in Toronto. We partner with local organic farms and like-minded local businesses and artisans, and deliver local, organic, small-scale grown or produced food that tastes really good. We deliver directly to our member's homes, throughout the GTA, on a weekly basis from our 20,000 sq. ft headquarters located in East Toronto. We are a fast growing company working to realize some exciting and ambitious plans in the coming few years. We’re a progressive organization focused on the overall happiness, health and balance/mindfulness of our 90+ staff.

Since 2017, Mama Earth Organics has been a certified B Corporation – a community of companies using business as a force for good. B Corps work toward reduced inequality, lower levels of poverty, a healthier environment, stronger communities, and the creation of more high quality jobs with dignity and purpose. By harnessing the power of business, B Corps use profits and growth as a means to a greater end: positive impact for their employees, communities, and the environment.

As an essential service we have undertaken additional layers of protection for our staff and customers during the current pandemic. We have health screening for everyone entering our warehouse, including temperature checks. We are all wearing masks and gloves (and are changing our gloves often throughout the day) as well as washing our hands and using hand sanitizer wherever possible. We are also practicing physical distancing and recording any interactions within a 2m distance. We have contactless delivery. The health of our Mama Earthlings and their families is really important to us!
