Internships

The Field & Fork Program offers internships every semester for students looking for work experience, college credit, or the chance to explore the practical and applied components of our food system. Interns have the opportunity to network with community organizations and industry partners, and to work in the field learning all aspects of producing food for the Alan and Cathy Hitchcock  Field & Fork Pantry on campus.
