New CEFS Supply Chain Summer Internships Apply by March 12

CEFS Supply Chain Internships

Applications are open for new Supply Chain Summer Internships from the Center for Environmental Farming Systems (CEFS)!

Looking for a unique summer internship where you’ll learn about community-based food systems and help build local food value chains between local farmers and regional, institutional markets?

Join us for CEFS’ new 9-week (May 24-July 23, 2021) PAID summer Supply Chain Internship. Participants will work with one of three local food intermediaries (Foothills Food Hub, Sandhills AgInnovation Center, and Working Landscapes) and N.C. Cooperative Extension to increase local food procurement in county-based senior food services. This internship also includes a week-long tour of diverse agroecosystems across the state.

This is a great opportunity for students to learn about county-based senior food services, rural farming systems, food council networks, and national local food metrics. Applicants must be currently enrolled in an undergraduate, graduate, or professional degree program at any North Carolina university, college, or community college.

Applications are due March 12, 2021.
