Project Grow, Merced: Food Security thru Community Gardening

Company: Americorps
Location: Merced
Posted on: May 16, 2019

Job Description:

Too many families are not able to access food to nourish their children and loved ones. Food insecurity is impacting children, families, and the health and economy of our communities. This is especially true in Merced, California despite the community's abundance in agriculture and food production. Organizations and programs throughout the United States are looking for experienced, engaged individuals for solutions to this challenge. Project Grow is a new demonstration program in Merced. We are assessing how home-based and neighborhood community gardening can help families in Medi-Cal or with lower income to improve food security for children and parents. Our approach is community-driven and focused on social justice. Our community-academic team uses asset-based community development (ABCD), participatory action research (PAR), and social entrepreneurship. Summer Associates will have a great time learning and helping with Project Grow for 8 weeks in Merced. Summer Associates will: 1.) Assist in outreach, community mobilizing and volunteer development (learn marketing, event coordination). 2.) Create and assess user-friendly program materials with families and medical providers in English, Spanish and Hmong (learn community research and development). 3.) Develop resources and assist with the growth of the program as a social enterprise (learn fund development and business planning). This opportunity is perfect for undergraduate college students who need hands-on learning experiences to help them get into strong graduate programs and great jobs after graduation. Skills and experiences gained during Project Grow will help Summer Associates prepare for a future in public health, community service, education, business, and more!
