Help farm animals remotely!

 The Food and Nutrition division focuses on outreach, through our Forward Food program, to large institutions, such as colleges, hospitals, and school districts, to help them institute more plant-based menu items by hosting free educational events and trainings. Our goal is to make half of all meals served in food service dining programs in the U.S. plant-based by 2025. Students, faculty and staff on college campuses are in a unique position to assist in our work. By conducting research and outreach on your campuses, you are both increasing our impact and helping to show the demand for plant-based meals.

We are looking for volunteers (click to view expanded position description) to join our team and assist with a variety of tasks. Among other duties, volunteers conduct campus-specific research and compile a case study regarding the plant-based options on your campus, conduct plant-based audits of campus menu items, and meet with dining services representatives to discuss plant-based options.

Benefits of volunteering

Volunteers will learn about the Farm Animal Welfare Campaign and develop experience in the field of animal protection while addressing real-world issues. This is a great opportunity to work with a prominent animal organization on a vital campaign to help farm animals. Please see attached position description for additional learning opportunities.
