The intern will work with members of the child nutrition team to develop resources targeted for a variety of stakeholders including state child nutrition agencies, anti-hunger and education advocates, and school districts to expand participation in the school and out-of-school time nutrition programs, as well as Pandemic EBT. This position will include significant exposure to policy making processes and interaction (conference calls, meetings, etc.) with leaders in the anti-hunger policy community. Currently, FRAC is operating remotely, and this position will be remote as well.

FRAC engages in research, policy analysis and advocacy, coalition-building, outreach, technical assistance and training, and an array of communications strategies. In partnership with hundreds of national, state, and local nonprofit organizations, public agencies, corporations, and labor organizations, FRAC addresses hunger and food insecurity, and poverty as their root cause.
FRAC’s child nutrition work is part of its Campaign to End Childhood Hunger, which focuses on increasing children’s access to the federal nutrition programs. The National School Lunch and School Breakfast Programs play a crucial role in reducing childhood hunger and improving children’s health and educational achievement.
