The Spent Goods Company works with organizations to re-imagine food waste, reducing their expenses and carbon footprint while generating new revenue sources. Whether it’s to make corrugated cardboard from spent grains or transforming day old bread into beer by diverting organic waste from the landfill, we can help you to reduce your climate change impact. Most recently, we have worked with craft breweries to transform their leftover barley grains (aka spent grains) into revenue generating food products that are sold as part of their menu to their customers.
We’re growing and we looking for passionate people to help us achieve our mission.
- We believe that there are efficient ways of achieving our goals, sometimes against the status quo

1. Farmer’s Market Sales (This role has now been filled as of March 25 2022)
We’re looking for help to run the booth at Evergreen Farmer’s Market, located at the Toronto Brickworks.
It’s every Saturday from 7a-130p (Market starts at 8a to 1p) starting May – end of Dec
Closest to Broadway Station but the Evergreen shuttle doesn’t start that early for you to arrive on time.
You’d likely need a car/$10 taxi from subway to get there in the morning (will cover parking/last mile taxi)
Folding tables and display items are stored on-site and you’d be responsible for booth setup and sales.
Ideally you are a self starter, have your Food Handler’s certificate, some sales experience (we’ll also provide training) and comfortable initiating conversation with curious passersby and succinctly tell our story about what we do.
It’s a great way to spend time outdoors, meet interesting people in a COVID safe manner.
Plus, perks include all the bread and pretzels you can eat!
As its based on experience, do let us know your ideal rate and/or provide a fixed quote once you’ve gathered requirements. If the role sounds ideal, we’d love to hear from you.
