[CLOSED] SUMMER GRADUATE STUDENT INTERNSHIP WORKING ON FOOD SYSTEMS IN SAN JOSE
SAGE (Sustainable Agricultural Education) is a Berkeley nonprofit working at the intersection of food and farming, and local government and planning. We have a summer internship opportunity for a graduate student with a background in economics, policy, planning, public health, or related fields to provide research and analysis to support the implementation of San Jose Food Works.
The intern will work on three aspects of implementation:
- Capacity Building: Research models and best practices and make recommendations for implementing and running coordinated food systems work at a city or regional level.
- Feasibility Study: Research relevant models and make recommendations for developing a proposed new wholesale food market in San Jose to create more capacity to move local produce and specialty food items into San Jose and the city’s various specialty grocery stores, markets, restaurants and new food businesses.
- Food micro entrepreneurs needs assessment Research how other great food cities have helped small food businesses to thrive. Analyze best practices such as food business incubators, food truck courts, small business development programs, etc. and summarize best practices and recommendations for San Jose.
