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 Pantry on campus.

We are no longer accepting applications for Fall 2019, but if you’re interested in a Spring 2020 internship, please feel free to get a jump on the announcement and apply with your resume and the Field & Fork Application, and send it to dinalieb@ufl.edu.
