The NHFPC Food Advocate training is taking place on October 26th, and will be followed by an 11 hour internship. The training is being organized by the New Haven Food Policy Council, the Community Alliance for Research and Engagement (CARE), and End Hunger CT!
The Food Advocate training is designed to train New Haven residents who have received food assistance to become their own advocates. Through basic skills and advocacy coaching, this training and internship provides the opportunity for people to tell their own personal stories and make a difference at the policy and community levels.
We are looking for 12 people in New Haven who are activists and
- who receive (or have received) SNAP or WIC benefits, or
- who use (or have used) food pantries or soup kitchens, or
- are seniors who are experiencing or are at risk of food insecurity.
As you’ll see in the attached brochure, the training and internship are both paid. The application for the training is attached to the brochure. All applications are due by October 11th
. Instructions for returning the application to us are included on the brochure.
If you know someone who may be interested in this opportunity, please contact Billy Bromage, chair of the Food Assistance Working Group at billy....@yale.edu
, to get a brochure. You can also print the brochure from the attached PDF and have the applicant send it in.
Thank you, in advance, for any help you can provide in reaching out to people who might be interested in this opportunity to join us in working for positive food system change!
