Student Internship Opportunities

Bookmark and Share

Looking for field experience as part of your educational program for college?

Food Bank managers are constantly defining short and long-term projects that can not only make an impact on the Food Bank’s mission, but also can assist students looking for practical field experience in the social services, nutrition education, fund-raising or non-profit business sector.

Typically, internship projects are unpaid and provide an educational experience for a college student under the mentorship of a Food Bank leader and sponsoring educational institution.  Occasionally a paid internship opportunity becomes available with funding either from an educational institution or by a special grant obtained by the Food Bank.

Students are encouraged to apply for listed internship opportunities as well as for opportunities that may not, as of yet, be listed on our website.  To apply, submit a letter of interest, specifying the goals of your school’s field experience program, and/or your own personal goals.  College representatives may also contact us on behalf of students involved in educational programs that require field experience.  We will then try to match students or college programs with a Food Bank manager or project that will help everyone achieve their goals.  Upon interview and acceptance by the Food Bank, a "Memorandum of Understanding and Goal Identification" sheet will need to be completed by both the student and his/her sponsoring educational institution in order to begin the internship.
