Internship Opportunity

FFAC is offering a unique opportunity for an intern passionate about food access issues and social justice to participate in a hands-on project that will result in providing fresh, healthy, plant-based lunches for 65 low-income students. This is a special opportunity to take the lead on a project and see it through from start to finish.

Responsibilities include:

  • Researching funding sources and donation sources
  • Holding informational interviews with other organizations doing similar work
  • Assessing the needs of the school
  • Devising a funding and implementation plan

The internship is unpaid, but we would be happy to work with a school to provide course credits for the internship. The project will take place over the course of the semester, so weekly time commitment is flexible. Likely 5-10 hours per week.

The ideal candidate will:

  • Have a basic understanding of local food systems, food insecurity, and food recovery
  • Possess strong verbal and written communication skills
  • Be self-motivated and innovative, thinking outside the box.

If you are interested, please send your resume to katie@ffacoalition.org and a cover letter stating:

  • Why you are passionate about food justice
  • Experience with or knowledge of food systems
  • Leadership experience, especially related to project management
  • Writing sample (can be previous writing on any topic, 1 page)
