I participated with Food First as part of a very localized fellowship program. It gave big picture context to my work. It is a very get out what you put in situation. They love self-starters and people with good ideas. The staff are great, and I learned so much from them. They know how to appreciate the work of their unpaid interns, because the organization depends on them. I gained a lot being part of the intern team. It's best if you can come in more than once a week, and have a specific project you want to work on. Also, lunch cooking rotation was great!
Would you volunteer for this group again?
