FoodWorks Fellowship Program

What is Middlebury FoodWorks?
An innovative summer leadership program combining academic and experiential learning in food systems:

• Nine intensive weeks in Vermont, Kentucky, or Washington D.C. (May31-August1)
• “Exploring local food systems” course
• Cohort living and cooking with 15 students
• Food systems mentors and experts
• A four-day paid internship ($2,000)
• Weekly fifth-day learning journeys
• One Middlebury credit (equivalent three semester-hour credits)

What does it mean for students?
• The chance to touch, taste, and work with all aspects of the local food movement.
• A comprehensive view of the local food system and its role in urban and rural economic development, including direct contact with experts.
• Engagement in a learning community around food studies, as students live and participate together.
• An online component that allows FoodWorks Fellows to connect across sites and compare rural and urban food systems experiences.

Each student works four days a week in a paid $2,000 internship focused on a different aspect of the local food structure. On the fifth day, students participate together in activities to learn more about sustainable agriculture; food systems; community and economic development; nutrition and health; and other topics such as food security and justice, policy, culture and traditions. The group will explore the city studying these different topics, meeting with local leaders. At the end of the summer, each intern will earn one Middlebury credit (equivalent three semester-hour credits).

While there are several internships with a traditional focus on food & agriculture, many of the opportunities listed appeal to students interested in the following career fields and/or skills and interests: Retail & Merchandising, Government and Policy; Communications & Media, Economic Development, Education, Research, Science & Technology, Architecture & Planning, Non-profit, Business and Consulting, Social Entrepreneurship, Health, Community Organizing, Event Planning and Coordination, and more.
