Description

Pierce's Pantry is a gluten free food bank located in the Boston area. Our mission is to provide safe food choices for gluten intolerant members of the community experiencing food insecurity.

Since our inception in 2011, when we had only a single partner pantry, we have grown to now offer gluten free emergency food assistance at eleven area food pantries. We are very enthusiastic about the expansion of our program, but with this growth comes the challenge of creating a support team for our growing organization in order to meet increasing needs.

The Intern for our non-profit organization will help procure donations and grants needed to run Pierce's Pantry. Good organization and communication skills are very important. Experience with other non-profits/ grant writing/ community advocacy is preferred.

The Intern will gain experience in the following areas: communication; grant writing; non-profit funding; management; organization; community outreach; food delivery systems; advocacy; and experience working with a non-profit organization.
