Food Access Intern – Apply by April 29
We are seeking one intern with availability during weekdays and may include community outreach or supporting Mobile Farmer’s Market on a weekend day. The intern will support two Mobile Farmers’ Market routes per week on Tuesdays and Thursdays for the duration of the internship. Additional hours will occasionally be added for outreach on a third day. The Food Access Intern will work in San Jose, Redwood City, and Sunnyvale, and in-person office day in East Palo Alto.
The Mobile Farmers’ Market program at Fresh Approach is a farmers’ market on wheels whose purpose is to increase access to fresh, locally-grown produce in the Bay Area. It sources produce directly from local farmers to sell to historically underserved areas, where fresh quality produce is not easily accessible.
The deadline to apply is 4/29/2022.
A stipend of $3,888 is available.
The internship will begin in late May or early June, depending on the Intern’s schedule, and last for 12weeks. The exact dates will be determined based on the intern’s schedule. The intern is expected to work at least 18 hours per week.
