Food Day Internship


Center for Science in the Public Interest

Washington, DC

The Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI) is a non-profit health-advocacy group based in Washington, D.C., that focuses on nutrition and food safety. CSPI publishes Nutrition Action Healthletter, the nation's largest circulation nutrition newsletter. CSPI provides valuable, objective information to the public, represents citizens' interests before legislative, regulatory, and judicial bodies, and ensures that advances in science are used for the public's good. CSPI is supported largely by the 850,000 U.S. and Canadian subscribers to its Nutrition Action Healthletter and by foundation grants.

Food Day is a major national event that CSPI is sponsoring in October 2011. The goal is to educate the public and support policy measures on such issues as diet and health, sustainable agriculture, farm-animal welfare, and food insecurity. Interns will help develop materials, identify and work with local activists around the country, and answer inquiries from the public about how to get involved in Food Day.

We have full-time and part-time paid internships available this fall. Undergraduates are paid $8.25/hour and graduate students earn $9.25/hour. The specific dates of the internship are flexible and depend on our needs and the applicant's schedule.
