Tikkun Ha-Ir is looking for a food justice intern to assist us on our Veggie Chop Shop program for about 10-15 hours a week from May – Sept.

Tikkun Ha-Ir (THI) is a local, Jewish not-for-profit that seeks to create a more just Milwaukee by uniting Jews of all backgrounds in study, action and civic engagement.

The Veggie Chop Shop (VCS) is THI’s signature annual program. It is a community meal program that utilizes excess produce from area farmer’s markets and turns it into delicious, healthy meals for the food insecure in our city.

The program runs from June-September. We receive the produce on Sundays, as well as glean on a farm one Friday a month. We take the gleaned produce and cook meals for the community every Tuesday.

We are looking for an intern to help us:

  • As a key staff in the kitchen on Tuesdays (approx. 830am – 4pm)
  • Support gleaning efforts during the week and on Wednesday and Sunday afternoons, and monthly on Friday morning. This includes recruiting volunteers, and training them if needed. Gleaning will occur at Fondy Farmers Market, Brown Deer Farmers Market and Gwenlyn Hills Farm
  • Correspond with the recipient agencies to maintain an open line of communication and gather feedback, also potentially delivering meals to recipient agencies
  • Coordinate logistics, between food deliveries/ pick up and food drop off
  • Coordinate gleaning volunteers for farms, farmers markets and grocery stores
  • Help create recipes that be used for future seasons
  • Foster relationships with volunteers, other kitchen staff and recipient agencies
  • Help create a plan for a nutrition education program in collaboration with Medical College of Wisconsin staff (training to be provided)

Hours: 10-12 hours per week on average

Stipend: $2000 total, $500 paid monthly

Timeframe: May 23rd, 2023-September 26th 2023
