The Zero Hunger internship is a golden opportunity for personal and career growth. Going into it, I thought I knew everything about hunger and food insecurity because of my own lived experiences. But this internship taught me that there was much more to learn by taking in the experience of others. The internship prioritizes learning as a group over an individual, allowing for meaningful connections. Zero Hunger unites individuals from different backgrounds with similar goals, thus allowing for a chance to learn more from each other above other thingsKyle Pico (Summer 2022), placed with International Food Policy Research Institute
The Zero Hunger Internship exposed me to a breadth of knowledge and resources regarding anti-hunger policy and service. But most powerfully, it introduced me to a broad diversity of passionate and intelligent people, whether they were senior level, experienced professionals, or the other zero hunger interns at my side. I'm grateful to have had the chance to speak with all sorts of anti-hunger advocates and experts, whether at the federal policy level, or doing ground-level direct service. Each of these unique perspectives is critical to creating equitable, effective, and sustainable, change. As I pursue a career of fighting for justice, I'll carry these lessons, resources, experiences, and perspectives with meLayne Johnson, Political Philosophy, Policy and Law student at the University of Virginia, 2022 Zero Hunger Summer Intern
