Please welcome Sim Jhutti to the NOWBC service team! She will be responding to your with your service inquiries and making account adjustments alongside Stephanie Masterman.
Sim came to NOWBC through govolunteer.ca, but she wasn’t looking for just any volunteer gig. “I was searching through the website to find a volunteer opportunity where I could assist with the sustainable production and management of food products. It actually worked out quite perfectly.”
“I decided to volunteer with NOWBC because organic and local food is a big interest of mine.” She takes this passion seriously as a UBC student in the faculty of land and food systems. “I’m planning to major in Food Science or Nutritional Science, and because of this I’m very passionate about wholesome and nutritious foods that are produced through sustainable means.”
What does she do when she’s not volunteering for NOWBC or studying? This active lady is also a volunteer Peer Academic Coach. “I also work once a week on Sundays at Freedman Shoes. In my spare time I like to watch TV comedies such as Modern Family, The League, and Parks & Recreation.”
As you would expect from someone passionate about food, Sim could easily share a delicious dish with us. “I really, really enjoy organic mushrooms. They’re possibly my favourite type of vegetable. I’m a prescatarian (a vegetarian for the most part, but I do eat fish once in a while), so my ideal meal is a piece of grilled salmon with sauteed mushrooms, baby potatoes, and asparagus with organic spring mix on the side.”
We’re delighted to have you join us, Sim. And we’ll be over for dinner shortly.
