I was in intern with Food First for almost a year while finishing up my studies at Cal, and the experience changed my life. It's a very different type on internship structure, and I was able to create my own projects and participate in ongoing projects. Food First gives you the foundation to critique our industrialized food regime and provides analysis and specific solutions on how we can fix it. Being situated in the Bay Area, in the context of strong and active community organization added value to my experience. Because of Food First, I now have a strong foundation for going out into the world and playing my unique role for change. Some of my favorite memories are the shared lunches and gardening experiences with fellow interns and staff.
