This summer we had the good fortune of hosting three UNC Chapel Hill interns from the Gillings School of Public Health, as well as two undergraduate interns from NC State. Here is a little about what they worked on over the summer...
Samantha Tinsley, Meredith Ebersohl, Lesley Rollins:
UNC School of Public Health Graduate Student Interns
Samantha, Lindsey, and Meredith worked with multiple pieces of IFFS's Nutrition Education Programs. From teaching a Cooking Matters course with Communities in Schools, to working at the IFFS Teaching Farm, these ladies have experienced a little of everything offered by IFFS. Their main projects focused on designing a Nutrition Summer Camp for the IFFS Teaching Farm; designing a garden plot for toddlers; and constructing a surrounding fence for the farm.
Becky Dobosy and Kevin Wilson:
Health Educator Interns from NC State University
Becky and Kevin worked as the Health Educator Interns with the Food Matters at Mobile Markets Program. Using the Food Matters curricula, they each prepared presentations for various IFFS Mobile Markets in Wake, Johnston, and Durham counties throughout the summer. This program utilized public speaking, nutrition knowledge, and culinary skills.
Nutrition Programs Assistant Intern from NC State University
Michelle worked primarily with developing curricula for IFFS's Mobile Tastiness Machine Food Truck. Working alongside our summer AmeriCorps VISTA, Jennifer Ozkurt, Michelle helped with editing curricula layout, developing interactive activities, and piloting the program at the Mobile Tastiness Machine at Parrish Manor in Garner, NC.
A BIG THANK YOU TO ALL OF OUR WONDERFUL SUMMER INTERNS FOR THEIR HARD WORK AND DEDICATION!
