  Art and Environment: Sam Moore's Internship with A Studio in the Woods.
Sam Moore is a senior with a double major in Environmental Studies and Studio Art.  For his public service internship this semester, he found an internship that is a great match for both of his academic interests. 
 "Overall, my internship at A Studio in the Woods has given me the  opportunity to interact with national and international artists as well as like-minded environmentalists, and to get ecological tidbits from the in-house botanist. I also have a glimpse into the inner workings of a nonprofit, and a peaceful, outdoor retreat to escape to during the week. It will continue to be an experience that I value and that broadens and enriches my perspective." -Sam Moore

Summer and Fall Internship Opportunities

 **The Hunger in America (HIA) study is conducted nationally every four years through food banks in the Feeding America Network. Throughout April-August 2013, SHFB will be conducing face-to-face interviews with food bank clients across 23 parishes. The goal of these surveys is to capture detailed information about who is in need of emergency food assistance and their circumstances. The results of the HIA study will provide an invaluable resource for charitable feeding organizations to help develop programs that best support people in need. The results also inform advocacy work and the public policy discourses so that federal nutrition programs can better serve families facing hunger. The intern will work closely with SHFB staff and volunteers to carry out this process.


To apply, please send resume and cover letter to Mike Kantor, mkantor@secondharvest.org
