Internships 

We are now accepting applications for Fall 2019 Internships.

Internships are unique and different from volunteer opportunities because our Interns receive more responsibilities and more in-depth training about alleviating food insecurity on our college campus. Interns will also be guaranteed an agreed amount of hours necessary to meet any requirement they need to fulfill.

ASI Food Pantry Interns will assist with the following projects and assignments:

  • Distribute food to Pantry clients.
  • Interact with and assist Pantry clients.
  • Receive food donations and inventory Pantry supplies and food.
  • Prepare and distribute additional resources to Pantry clients.
  • Collaborate with on- and off-campus organizations to support the Pantry.

Interns will have the opportunity to work approximately 3-8 hours per week to support the mission of the ASI Food Pantry. Interns will also have the opportunity to participate in seminars featuring campus speakers who work on food insecurity and various wellness issues. This is an unpaid internship but will provide hands on learning and a chance to boost your resume.
