Hot Yam! needs an accountant!

Hi lovelies!

We at the Hot Yam! are applying for funding and we desperately need a chartered accountant to prepare a Review Engagement Report for us. Do you or anyone you know have the magical accounting abilities to work with us?

Here is the posting on the GoodWork Canada mailing list we recently sent out with more details:


Position: Accountant to prepare Review Engagement Report
Organization: Hot Yam!
Location: Toronto, Ontario

Hot Yam! is a unfunded, student-run all-volunteer lunch
service that operates at the University of Toronto. Each
week we serve a vegan, mostly local, mostly organic meal for
$4 to the University of Toronto community, or anyone that
comes to eat with us. Our aim is to provide a healthy, fair
and sustainable alternative to the corporate food services
on campus, as well as educate our volunteers and eaters
about the food system and sustainable agriculture.

We have been running successfully since January 2007, and
growing every year. This past year we have started to serve
200 people each lunch. We have had some great press this
year, including these two wonderful reviews in NOW

As mentioned, we are currently unfunded. Each week we
attempt to make enough money through our meal sales to
pay for the week after, as well as cover rent and equipment
costs. We are in the process of applying for funding from
the university. We have been conditionally accepted upon
producing a Review Engagement Report completed by a
chartered accountant.

This volunteer job posting is for a chartered accountant to
work with us to prepare this document. We need it completed
it by January 18, 2010.

In exchange we will feed you weekly and love you always,
advertise you, or yes, we can discuss monetary remuneration
although, at the moment, we do have not much to offer.
