Who will my manager be?
Each Intern position has a designated staff manager that is dedicated to your individual training and development. We pride ourselves on being a team-based organization, and we view our Interns as part of our staff! Your input and ideas are always valued and encouraged!
Is this a paid internship?
Our internship is a volunteer position. Although there is no monetary compensation, our Interns are paid through experience and the opportunity to help provide meals for hungry children all around the world!
Am I able to earn college credit?
We work with many universities that offer class credit for the internship, however all paperwork and requirements are done through your university.
What are Hunger Projects?
Hunger Projects are the bread and butter for FCE! These are events where all the work in the office unfolds in front of the whole community. FCE partners with organizations all across the US to package healthy meals for hungry children, both locally and globally. For every dollar, we are able to send 4 healthy meals to those in need.
As an Intern, you will lead hundreds to thousands of volunteers packing meals at our events! It is the most rewarding part of what we do here at Feeding Children Everywhere. If one event can package thousands of meals, just think of how many lives you’ll help over the course of your internship.
When traveling to Hunger Projects, do I cover my own expenses?
FCE organizes all travel logistics, from transportation, meals, flights, and gas.
