In the past couple of years, I've been really excited about two new initiatives that have cropped up: FoodCorps (a public service program dedicated to bringing good food to limited-resource communities) and Food Day (a day in promotion of healthy, affordable food produced in a sustainable, humane way).
Now, as it turns out, they are both hiring! Both, at the same time!
You've gotta check this out:
And Food Day, from the Center for Science in the Public Interest (an awesome organization in its own right):
Food Day - Accepting
applications for spring internship. Applications for summer internships
will be considered in February/March.
Food Day is a major national
event that CSPI is sponsoring this October. The goal is to educate the
public and support policy measures on such issues as diet and health,
sustainable agriculture, farm-animal welfare, and food insecurity.
Interns will help develop materials, identify and work with local
activists around the country, and answer inquiries from the public about
how to get involved in Food Day. More information here!
(They're also seeking summer interns for Health Promotion Policy, Nutrition Policy, Food Safety, and Litigation).
