Farm Share Outreach Internship - Part-Time Paid - Philadelphia

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, United States

Description

The Common Market is a mission-driven distributor of local food. We exist to strengthen small and family-owned farms while simultaneously improving food access and public health for our most vulnerable communities.

The Common Market Farm Share program directly connects consumers to local produce through public and private pick-up locations throughout the Mid-Atlantic region. Members of our farm share program receive a variety of curated seasonal produce, meat, cheese, bread and more through bi-weekly “share" deliveries. Workplaces, residential buildings, and schools bring communities together to host farm share sites in both the winter and summer. Learn more about our program at cmfarmshare.org.

The Common Market seeks an outgoing part-time intern (about 20 hours a week) to help promote the upcoming Winter and Spring farm share season. The Farm Share intern will gain experience in customer service and engagement, marketing and promotion through on-site tabling events at wellness fairs and Lunch and Learns, email marketing campaigns and social media, and helping to set up new sites to engage in the program.
