Internships at the Food Depository

About our internship program

The purpose of the internship program at the Greater Chicago Food Depository is to involve students in various aspects of our mission; to educate and provide them with hands-on, realistic experience in a leading nonprofit organization; and to cultivate an appreciation of the needs of the community we serve to become better informed advocates surrounding the issue of food insecurity.

Internships are open to undergraduate and graduate-level college students of all majors, as well as individuals who are seeking experience in a career relating to nonprofit or social work. Ideal candidates will be seeking degrees, or hold degrees in, public policy, social services administration, public health, communications or a related field. Applicants to the program must meet all necessary requirements to be considered eligible.

Students who are eligible for academic credit and/or special funding programs through their college/university are encouraged to apply. A written evaluation of a completed internship is given to the intern upon successful completion.
