"The summer meals internship was an incredibly valuable experience both as I was doing it, and in the time after. During, it was a fun, uplifting experience in a positive work environment. Afterwards, it became an important resume builder, it’s been one of the experiences I’ve been asked about most during interviews. From education, to community services, to social work, this internship has helped me to develop important skills to start my career."  —Abby, (Past Summer Intern)
