Summer Internships 2017
Talk with Allyson (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you’re interested if any of these positions.
Farmers Market Coordinator
- Intern this summer with the Mill City Farmer‘s Market and Campus Kitchen! Through this unique partnership, you have the opportunity to work 20 hours per week with Mill City Market and another 10-20 hours per week with Campus Kitchen! The work includes learning behind-the-scenes management of a farmers market, coordinating the weekly gleaning efforts that distribute produce to elders in Cedar-Riverside (Somali language skills helpful but not necessary!), and engaging in collaborative community food systems conversation and action. There’s freedom for the intern to define learning objectives based on the intern‘s own interests! Apply for the Mill City position here and talk with Allyson (email@example.com) about the opportunity for a full-time summer job through this partnership!
Youth Education and Meals Coordinator
- Lead weekly cooking and gardening classes with K-8 youth at the Brian Coyle Center! Prepare and serve daily lunch with the same youth using recovered dining hall food and fresh produce. Key skills: flexibility, creativity, on-the-spot thinking, attention to detail, organization and documentation, and an ability to build rapport with diverse youth. Comfort in a kitchen is helpful but can be learned on the job!
Senior Meals Coordinator
- Lead weekly lunch deliveries (Thursday, 11am-1:30pm) to 60 seniors in the Phillips and Seward neighborhoods. Lead Friday night communal dinner in the Phillips neighborhood every 1st and 3rd Friday from 4-7:30pm. Coordinate food and supplies for meals, cook healthy dishes with ingredients on hand when necessary, recruit volunteers to help with meals, and develop relationships with seniors and partner organizations.
