Harvest Hope Food Bank Welcomes Summer Interns

Harvest Hope Food Bank is excited to welcome six interns in their summer 2022 cohort. Brittany Myers and Jaylin Madison will be joining the Advocacy and Marketing team, while Brandon Brown, John Alao, Rochelle Jadotte, and Trinita Geathers and will be joining the Information Technology team. All will be working throughout Harvest Hope’s 20-county service to help build a hunger-free tomorrow across the state.

Harvest Hope is glad to be partnering with HBCUs this summer to maximize our internship opportunities to students who typically would not have access to these hands-on paid learning experiences. As we promote diversity and inclusion, we believe these collaborations will advance this effort furthering our already intentional approach to diverse representation.

Harvest Hope is building a hunger-free tomorrow in 20 counties across South Carolina. Rescuing food from stores that is at risk of being discarded, as well as sourcing food from the community and producers, they distribute it to local food pantries and through multiple feeding programs. These programs provide food for some of SC’s most vulnerable citizens – children, seniors, and rural residents who don’t have access to reliable transportation to grocery stores. Annually, Harvest Hope provides over 22 million meals to neighbors in need across their service area. Learn more at harvesthope.org.
