FRESHFARM

FRESHFARM is a nonprofit that promotes sustainable agriculture and improves food access and equity in the Mid-Atlantic region. We operate producer-only farmers markets that provide vital economic opportunities to local farmers and food producers, pioneering food distribution programs that increase food access for low-income communities, and innovative food education that builds healthier communities. In a typical week, a service member at FRESHFARM might teach lessons from FRESHFARM’s FoodPrints curriculum, attend a staff meeting with other food educators, or assist at a fundraising or community event to support FRESHFARM’s work.

FoodCorps DC Metro members join a close-knit cohort serving BIMPOC communities in our nation’s capital. In addition to free museums, a thriving urban agriculture network, and a backyard that includes Rock Creek Park, DC Metro service members have access to D.C.’s metro and bus system and bike-friendly streets to ease the daily commute. Come to support DC’s diverse student population as they build stronger relationships with food, stay for the opportunity to work with amazing DC leaders and eat some of the best pupusas, Ethiopian food, and half smokes you’ll ever try.

Preferred Qualifications

  • Excellent verbal communication skills and basic computer skills (email, Google suite) are needed to perform this role.
  • Experience working with youth in a school setting is preferred but not required. The same goes for gardening, cooking, and teaching — these skills can be learned over the course of the service term, under the guidance of the Lead FoodPrints Teacher and with additional support as needed.
  • Our most successful service members in the past have been flexible, positive, reliable, organized, trustworthy, humble, responsive to verbal and digital communication in a timely manner, and came with an expectation to learn before leading.
