Intern, Food Initiative at Rockefeller Foundation

The Rockefeller Foundation has a unique opportunity to play a central role in fixing food loss-an eminently fixable problem. Just as we deployed resources to increase production when there simply was not enough food to feed humanity, we now have an opportunity-and an imperative-to ensure that the food that is grown is consumed.

As an Intern at The Rockefeller Foundation you will have the chance to contribute to our initiatives through engaging on meaningful work assignments.

Principal Duties and Responsibilities

The Intern will learn how to develop innovative solutions to improve nutrition security in resource-poor settings through cross-sector and multidisciplinary approaches involving nutrition, agriculture, business, environmental science, information technology, data science, and other fields.

Topics to be explored include food system transformation and enabling national and regional markets to sustainably produce affordable protective foods.
