Feeding America Internship in Washington

We are a national, nonprofit organization and the nation's leading domestic hunger-relief charity. Located in the heart of downtown Chicago, our mission is to feed America's hungry through a nationwide network of member food banks and engage our country in the fight to end hunger.

Learn more about our culture of working at the Feeding America National Office.

The Feeding America Washington Semester Internship Program offers students an opportunity to complement their formal education with career-related experience in public policy. This placement provides an excellent introduction to policy analysis, lobbying, grassroots organizing, coalition building, and advocacy communications. Interns gain firsthand experience in domestic hunger and nutrition policy and Congressional politics. Interns work closely with Feeding America staff to promote Feeding America’s policy agenda on hunger and nutrition assistance programs to a variety of audiences, including grassroots activists, congressional staff and other stakeholders.

The program is designed for undergraduate and graduate level college students. Candidates must be available at least two days per week for a minimum of 8 weeks. We prefer undergraduates who have completed their sophomore year of college, but others may apply.

The internship provides students with interesting and substantive work experience. Each intern will have clear work-plan and be assigned a designated staff member who will serve as their supervisor and mentor. Work-plans are designed to be beneficial for both Feeding America and the intern and are based on the needs of the organization and the skillset and interests of the intern.
