There are two volunteer needs at the 2018 Good Food EXPO: general volunteers and eco-educator volunteers. Benefits for all volunteers include:
- Free event volunteer t-shirt
- Snacks in the volunteer lounge
- Behind the scenes access – see how it all works and meet the folks who make it happen!
- Free same-day admission to events (excluding Saturday masterclass workshop)
We can’t do it without our wonderful volunteers! Our volunteers are instrumental to every aspect of the Good Food EXPO, and we annually have volunteer opportunities each day. Our dedicated volunteers help us put on an amazing event that educates and inspires people to make better choices for a Good Food economy.

Eco-Educators play a vital role in festival resource recovery and eco education, inspiring attendees to identify and divert resources and learn about environmental sustainability. The UIC Office of Sustainability is working with Bright Beat and FamilyFarmed to refine resource recovery at the EXPO. In this important role, volunteers will be positioned at prominent “Eco Stations” throughout the event, to inspire and educate event-goers in the proper disposal of their compostable and recyclable items. As an Eco-Educator, you are partaking in this wonderful opportunity to strengthen the Zero Waste Campus goal of the UIC Climate Commitments. Our efforts will contribute to a Zero Waste Guide for the UIC Forum, and reflect the sustainability community at UIC.
