Are you passionate about local food? Organic farming? Improving the food system in Monterey Bay and beyond? Come work with us at EatLocal.farm – we’re a direct-to-consumer online farmer’s marketplace that supports local farms along the Central California Coast. We are a community-minded organization that supports local farms by returning the majority of our retail sales back to the farmer, delivering high quality food to consumers, reducing food waste, educating consumers about local farming operations, and eating seasonally and locally.
We are looking for dependable folks to help pack local produce and deliver food to customers. Packers for EatLocal.farm, also known as Veggie Warriors, are part-time employees and operate from our warehouse in Watsonville, CA. All Veggie Warriors work in the EatLocal pack shed as a team, interacting with local farms and producers to pack pre-ordered goods from our online marketplace and deliver them directly to the community.
