Intern, The Pasture Project, Winrock Int’l (VA)

Application Deadline: April 14th, 2014

The Wallace Center has been a key organization in fostering a more sustainable food and agricultural system in the U.S. since 1983. Today, the Wallace Center is focused on expanding and accelerating the expansion of sustainable and community-based food systems throughout the U.S., with a vision to bring more good food—healthy, green, fair, affordable food—to more people. Wallace Center is doing this through business models and social networking that bridge the gaps between producers, consumers, non-profit organizations, government, and for-profit food companies; in order to “scale up” good food distribution beyond the direct marketing realm to wholesale and traditional food outlets (e.g., food service, institutions etc.)
