INSTITUTE FOR FOOD AND DEVELOPMENT POLICY INC
September 22, 2012

My experience interning with Food First exceeded my expectations. Though the internship is very loose in its structure, the structure places the intern in control. Interns are given near complete responsibility for what they take away from the experience. For some, this is frightening, for me, this was exciting. I worked specifically with the Oakland Food Policy Council and the Council's coordinator. ..... The other thing that I appreciated about interning with Food First is the communal lunches. Food First provides its interns with lunch nearly everyday. Not only are the lunches (really) good, they facilitate respectful and intellectual conversation among all: interns, staff, and executive director. I learned much during the lunch hour.
