About the Loaded Ladle:

The Loaded Ladle is a non-profit open food cooperative of students and community members based out of the Dalhousie Students’ Union Building. We are dedicated to providing accessible, sustainable and locally sourced food by providing free meals on campus and by supporting off-campus events and groups who share our mandate for social and environmental justice. We aim to address injustices within the global food market, particularly in how it affects university campuses and marginalized communities under capitalism. We offer a local alternative to corporate food models, encouraging creative resistance and engaging in food justice knowledge and resource sharing.

Employment Equity:

The Loaded Ladle commits itself to an equity-based approach to hiring, which incorporates an awareness of systemic oppression. We recognize that the public face of the broader food justice movement in North America is predominantly white and privileged. We also recognize that the people most affected in the struggle for food sovereignty are people from historically marginalized groups. For these reasons, The Loaded Ladle believes that employment equity is necessary to challenge some of these injustices.

The Loaded Ladle sees Employment Equity as a proactive measure to prioritize hiring people from historically marginalized groups. In order to be considered for Employment Equity, we strongly encourage people to self-identify in their cover letter. A non-comprehensive list of these groups includes Indigenous people, women, people of colour, Black Nova Scotians, Inuit and Métis people, Acadians, lesbian, bisexual, gay, two spirit, transgender, transsexual, queer and intersex people, people with disabilities, and working class people. This policy seeks to act as an extension of the Loaded Ladle’s Anti-Oppression Mandate.
