Classification Number:


Classification Title:

Weybridge Food Preservation Intern


Campus Activities & Leadership


Level A (General)

Job Description:

Weybridge House is the Food Studies House. We commit to eating an all-local diet with a few exceptions and we rely on our summer preservation intern to can and freeze our fruits and vegetables so that we have access to a balanced diet year round. The Preservation Internship is therefore key to our success in achieving our mission. The Interns will have the opportunity to experience preserving and freezing on a large scale and will understand firsthand the time and labor involved in eating a completely local diet in a cold climate. Specifically, the Preservation Interns will be responsible for freezing berries and vegetables, canning jams, salsas, and sauces, and purchasing dry goods and sweeteners for the house for the upcoming year. A knowledgable and experienced community mentor will teach the interns hands-on preservation skills.

There are various options in how we can set up the internship, depending on your interest: it can be done as a Food Works internship (see go/foodworks for more information) or combined with work at the Knoll early in the season, or can be preservation full time all summer. We are hiring 2 interns to work for the entire summer.
