Move For Hunger Fellowship Program

We know that there are highly-qualified candidates in our community who do not even apply to our traditional internship program because they would not be able to accept an unpaid position. The Move For Hunger Fellowship Program was designed to address that problem and provide a student from Monmouth or Ocean County, NJ with an opportunity to gain experience in every aspect of our organization.

The Move For Hunger Fellowship is an investment in our community and in the future of the anti-hunger movement. It is important to give people who are underprivileged or underrepresented a chance to lend their voice to the conversation. We believe this fellowship will both empower and open doors for potential leaders.

 

We are now accepting applications for the Fellowship Program

OceanFirstBank_Logo.svgThanks to a generous grant from the OceanFirst Foundation, we will be able to welcome our second Move For Hunger Fellow in the Fall of 2020. This 6-month program will provide a low-income student from Monmouth or Ocean County with a comprehensive non-profit experience. Fellows will be compensated per hour with a 20-hour per-week time commitment. Click below for a complete job description and to apply.

  • David Rivera

    David became the first Move For Hunger Fellow in June, 2018. After completing a 2-week rotation with each of our 8 departments, David chose to spend the remaining 8 weeks of his Fellowship working with our Events and Communications teams. David lives in Ocean Grove and is currently pursuing his Associate’s Degree at Brookdale Community College.


    “My fellowship at Move for Hunger allowed me to learn the ins and outs of a non-profit and to gain work experience while earning a stipend to help pay for my college expenses. The staff was kind and helpful and that made the office a comfortable place to be. Programs like this are crucial for introducing students to professional environments and providing them with the skills they’ll need to succeed. I am honored to be the first fellow and I would encourage anyone to apply as a stepping stone for their career.”
