Seeds for Learning, a food justice program that teaches public school youth ranging from 3rd grade to high school how to grow, prepare and sell local sustainable produce in their Philadelphia neighborhoods, is looking for 2 unpaid interns for their Community Lunch summer program. Every summer Seeds for Learning organizes a Community Lunch series featuring local chefs who prepare a free lunch on Mondays using local sustainable agriculture for residents in North Philadelphia. The lunch is held at Martin Luther King High School on Stenton Avenue, and the food is sourced from the on-sight urban farm run by a group of high school students through Seeds for Learning. This internship is perfect for those interested in food justice, urban agriculture, cooking and/or education.
