Are you interested in working in Food Industry? Check out the AFFI summer internship!

AAFI is looking for interns three times a year roughly January to April, May to August, September to December. We are looking for students who are interested in nutrition,  food safety or food science regulation and policies and how it affects the industry. We are a very small trade association (17 staff members) that services the frozen food industry and retailers. The interns would learn more about the broad regulations world (labeling requirements, setting DRIs and DRVs, GMO labeling, food safety, etc.) Interns would learn about the stakeholder role industry has in policy and how the picture can be much more complicated than it may seem to the average consumer or even policy maker. Also, this is a great opportunity to refine technical writing skills, which is a great way to build your portfolio!

 A stipend may be available, but the intern must arrange their own housing in DC, MD or VA and have a car. The intern can be a recent graduate (i.e. someone who graduated in December and is looking for spring internship), or a summer intern. We are looking for both January-April and summer interns at this time.
Note that this opportunity would qualify for Juniors in the dietetics option that are completing field experience this summer.
