NEWS FOR STUDENTS: New Fellowship – Farmlink FIELD Project

From American Studies graduate Claire Rider:

I’m reaching out because I want to share what I’ve been working on: an immersive fellowship in the food industry. I work full-time at The Farmlink Project now, and have been focused on increasing our social impact in the food space. For the past couple months, I’ve been working to leverage our relationships with food banks, farmers, and logistic organizations to create opportunities for students to get hands-on interaction with food system stakeholders. I’ve developed a fellowship program with a 10 week introductory curriculum and a 10 week project design curriculum to accompany a summer immersion internship. My hope is that students are provided an extensive support network to work closely within food spaces and accelerate social change
