Interested in a summer internship focusing on food justice and restorative justice? Phat Beets Produce might be the best place for you!

The Phat Beets Allyship is based on the framework of a traditional internship program with an emphasis on supporting local leaders. The program provides an opportunity to work in the field of food justice while participating in an active Anti-Oppression study group. The program works to provide effective, simultaneous development of both programmatic and personal development work in the field of food justice. This opportunity will generally require a minimum commitment of around 10 hours per week for 3 months. Allies will be able to finish the Allyship with a better understanding of what goes into funding a collective, community-based organization as well as a better understanding of how to create equitable farmers’ markets, and basic themes of food justice.

The following positions are available for summer opportunities:

  • Community Fundraising and Office Support Allyship
  • Kids, Families and Food Allyship
  • Food N’ Justice Workshop Series Allyship
  • Restorative Justice Allyship
  • Dover St Edible Park and Healthy Hearts Clinic Garden Allyship
