Eat REAL Virtual Volunteer Summer Internship Program

The launch of our Summer Virtual Volunteer Intern Program was an incredible success, furthering our community engagement and shaping our youth outreach program. 

Six interns joined us to create educational social media campaigns for their peers, inspired by the Eat REAL standards. Their projects highlighted the importance of eating real whether through incorporating more plant-based options into your diet, the importance of eating locally and sustainably, and understanding where your food comes from and how it is made. 

As they developed their projects, our interns attended workshops in the science of Eat REAL, Communications and Social Media, and Presentation Skill Building. They had weekly one on one meetings with our team and the opportunity to hear from guest presenters. 

Eat REAL’s Chief Pediatrician, Dr. Alan Greene, led them through the history of health and nutrition science and how eating whole fresh foods is key to a healthy immune system. His expertise in the field and captivating presentation was a highlight for the cohort. 

The cohort also had the opportunity to meet with Dr. Riva Robinson for a motivational lecture and discussion. You can read more about the experience here

On the final day of the program, each intern was given the opportunity to “pitch” their campaign to their peers and the Eat REAL team. We were blown away by the passion and learnings that were shared during each presentation. All of the interns left the cohort as strong peer educators and new leaders for the real food movement!

Make sure to head to our Instagram, @eatrealcertified to see their campaigns, and help us celebrate their hard work!

We hope you have a peaceful day of gratitude connecting safely with your loved ones. Eat REAL is thankful for our amazing community of supporters and real food advocates.
