Good Food Foundation Summer Internship

Good Food Foundation

The Good Food Foundation exists to celebrate, connect, empower and leverage the passionate and engaged, yet often overlooked, players in the food system who are driving towards tasty, authentic and responsible food in order to humanize and reform our American food culture.

About our projects:
• Good Food Awards: The Good Food Awards were created to celebrate the kind of food we all want to eat: tasty, authentic and responsibly produced. The annual award recognizes the people who produce good food and brings businesses the attention they need to grow and thrive. Winners gain valuable marketing opportunities and participate in an Awards Ceremony hosted by Alice Waters in San Francisco.
• Good Food Guild: With 450 sustainable food business members, the Guild is the first of its kind trade association with the mission to connect, convene and promote craft food and beverage producers who share socially responsible business practices.
• Good Food Mercantile: The Good Food Mercantile is an un-trade show for tasty, authentic, responsible food. This one-day, intimate gathering brings together over 500 like-minded food crafters and retailers.

Dates: May 17- Aug 3
Location: San Francisco/Bay Area

Compensation: Stipend, copious edible perks and the opportunity to work with national leaders in the food movement.
