Farm Fresh Rhode Island is a 501c3 nonprofit organization founded in 2004 and based in Pawtucket, Rhode Island. Our mission is to grow a local food system that values the environment, health and quality of life of RI farmers and eaters.
Farm Fresh RI operates a wide range of marketplace programs (retail, wholesale, processing) that engage and connect tens of thousands of RI, MA and CT eaters with thousands of RI, MA and CT farmers. The goals of our programs are to increase farm viability and increase access to fresh food.
Farm Fresh Rhode Island is strongly committed to providing information on local farms, agriculture, and nutrition to a broad range of community members across the state — in schools and libraries, preschools, and senior centers and housing. Our programs are hands-on, interactive, and work to provide participants with the information needed to make smart choices about food while strengthening the local economy and contributing to vibrant communities. Programs also seek to share cultural traditions around food and celebrate the diverse culinary heritage of Rhode Island.
The Nutrition Education interns will assist the program in two different capacities:
-At programs: Interns will work alongside Nutrition Education staff as a healthy food ambassador at various program sites.
-In the office: Interns will assist with outreach and recruitment efforts, data entry, curriculum development, as well as program operations.
