The Village Food Project seeks enthusiastic intern

Thanks to the generosity of two separate donors, The Village Food Project is hiring a part-time, paid summer intern. Serving as the assistant to the executive director, the intern will have a variety of responsibilities, including updating and maintenance of communication vehicles such as the VFP website and Facebook page, assisting in the kitchen and garden and providing support to a number of volunteer areas.

“The fact that the VFP gives high school students the opportunity to serve people living in their own community is phenomenal,” said one donor. “These kids feel empowered and encouraged and look forward to continuing to serve as they enter their college years. Providing a summer internship for a college student supports the emphasis that the VFP puts on investing in youth – what an incredible opportunity for a student!”

The internship is available for a student who has completed a minimum of two years of college. Ideally, the student will live in Bay Village or Avon Lake (communities currently served by The Village Food Project); however, it is not a mandate.  The intern will work 20 hours per week for a period of 10 weeks. This is an excellent summer opportunity for an enthusiastic college student to get valuable experience in all facets of a growing, thriving community organization.

Applications are available on the website from March 21 until April 15. For more information, please contact Barb Harrell, executive director, at or call 440-348-9401.
