Food Shift community call out! 📣 We are currently seeking impact-oriented interns to join our team for Spring and Summer 2024. For on-site interns, we ask for a 6 month minimum commitment, contributing an average of 6–10 hours a week to Food Shift programs. If possible, we ask for a once a week on-site 2 hour food recovery shift — which occurs Tuesday , Wednesday, Thursday from 10AM–12PM. On-site interns are required to be able to lift around 25 lbs. The remaining hours will be supplemented by virtual opportunities: food recovery community education, social media, website design, and marketing. ⭐️
We offer JEDI training sessions for our interns, in addition to weekly groceries to supplement their experience, and monetary assistance as needed.
Please share this information with your networks! We are accepting applications on a rolling basis.

Food Shift recovers food that would otherwise go to waste and use it to nourish our neighbors through our partner organizations. For that work, we believe in serving hyperlocally to get to know our community and to minimize our carbon footprint. However, the insights we gain in serving our neighbors are shared out beyond our immediate community through our other programs, including our consulting services.
That line of work is growing: assisting other jurisdictions establish edible food recovery programs and converting food vendors into food donors. We are looking for someone who can help us with our consulting clients. We don't require specific consulting experience, and recognize that different experiences in our past can be transferred. We welcome BIPOC candidates and others with intersectionalities that meet the community we serve (especially Spanish speaking).
Please forwarding this job description to those who might be interested. ... See MoreSee Less
Our Executive Director Yuka is a part of The People’s Food and Farm Project (PFFP), which held a strategic retreat at the West Oakland Farm Park (formerly City Slicker Farms) in October. Initiated in 2022, the collective works towards generating sustainable and just food system change on a political and governance level. Grounded in the collaborative “People’s Food and Farm Bill,” the group hopes to share resources and knowledge to dream up a food future to support generations to come.
Samir Doshi (CS Fund’s Just Transitions Director), Shakirah Simley (Booker T Washington Community Service Center Executive Director), Victoria Benson (Justice Alchemy Principal & Founder), Marit Doshi (food system consultant), Jered Lawson (Pie Ranch Director of Partnerships and Strategic Initiatives); Jovida Ross (Food Culture Collective Executive Director); Tiffany Patton, (Real Food Media Co-director) met to visualize a just food system, and considered an effective path to achieve it, based on initial work laid out by many other inspirational food community members.
