"I want to help ensure everyone has access to healthy and affordable food! As an intern, I work with local elementary schools on the "Harvest of the Month" program, which provides materials for students and families to explore, taste, and learn about the importance of eating fruits and vegetables."
"I want to help others understand the impacts our food system and food choices can have on the environment. I work on the LA Farm to School Network and Northeast LA Farm to School & Wellness projects."
"As a UEP major, I am learning about social justice movements and sustainability practices that further enhance my passion for environmental justice. Interning at UEPI allows me to get a hands-on experience with these practices in reality."
"Through my internship I am learning how to apply my knowledge in the field. I assist UEPI staff in farmers' market research and prepping for Farm to School "Harvest of the Month" taste tests at local elementary schools."
