The Little Free Farmstand is a centralized drop off point for home gardeners that have food to share, and people who need produce to find it there. It is where gleaned items from local farms are distributed to the greater community. This program helps to manage the operation and recruiting volunteers from the neighborhood to be involved in the operation. We will also work with local high school students to build an appreciation for gardening and assist with engaging neighbors in distribution and cooking demonstrations.
Do you want a challenging and rewarding job that oversees and markets a vital communityfood program? Join the Huntingdon Community Center and help us fight food insecurity! The summer food program provides free meals for local youth 18 years of age and younger, and can be purchased for a nominal fee for adults, ensuring a nutritious meal is available during the summer months.
The Marist Summer Associate will work in a grassroots capacity building effort to strengthen the collective impact of the college, local nonprofits and school system to address food insecurity in the Hudson Valley.
Mighty Writers’ food and literacy distribution program supports some of Philly’s most hard-pressed neighborhoods with fresh and shelf stable foods, diapers, books and more. Summer Associate will assist with daily food and literacy distribution, recruit and/or manage community volunteers, improve the food security situation of many area residents by increasing the number of individuals attending distribution each day, and survey families to determine gap in needs and work with other MW staff to implement a plan of action to meet these needs in partnership with other organizations.
The Summer Associate will complement the work of our overall three year VISTA project to build capacity for the newly established Union County Food Hub. The Hub is CAA’s newest program, launched in January 2021, as a result of the VISTA project. CAA is partnering with the Lewisburg YMCA at The Miller Center, powered by Evangelical and Geisinger, to build a centralized food storage and distribution center to benefit the existing pantries and distributions operating around Union County and immediate surrounding areas.
The Summer Associate will be involved in the planning, preparation, and implementation of the Summer Learning Program for students entering grades 1-12. Assist with enrichment activities related to healthy habits, literacy, and the arts. Identify, establish, and implement the logistical structure for the daily operation of serving breakfast and lunch, along with a parent and child survey to assess the needs of families and evaluate the program’s outcomes. Increase access to available community resources by strengthening the partnership with Shippensburg Produce and Outreach. Implement and expand “Taste Test Thursdays.”
