Description:
The Amagansett Food Institute (AFI) is seeking a Research & Outreach Intern to help with research and education materials for AFI, South Fork Kitchens, and the Amagansett Farmers Market. This includes engaging the local community through promotion of timely policy updates, the development and design of educational materials, and promoting awareness of our business members, the café, the incubator kitchen, and the Market by various means.

AFI supports, promotes, and advocates for farmers and food producers on the East End of Long Island. Our recent efforts include a grab-and-go café, a commercial kitchen incubator, and a retail market for the growth of local food businesses and the production of value added goods on the East End of Long Island.
