About the Program

The Teen Nutrition Team (TNT) internship provides participants the opportunity to learn about nutrition education, professional development, and apply those experiences in the field.

This 1-year long internship program is available to High School students participating in their second year of the School Market program. Two interns from each participating school are selected from the applicants. There are 2 phases: Summer and School Year

Complete an online application here or download a paper application here.

Applications are due by Sunday, April 14th, 2019 at 11:5-pm. Late submissions will not be reviewed. 


The 10-week Summer Program begins in June 2019. Participants will meet at Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida for 2 days each week (Monday and Wednesday or Thursday).

Day 1 (Mondays) consists of training, professional development, and leadership opportunities.

Day 2 (Wednesdays or Thursdays) will take the training to the field and participants will visit Summer Food Sites or Food Pantries to share nutrition education with the community.


Following the completion of Phase 1, TNT members will return to their respective schools in the Fall as the Nutrition Educators for their School Market program. The 2 participants from each school will work together as the Fresh Market Coordinators.

The Nutrition Educators assist with distributing fresh produce to their school once-a-month during the Fresh Market. On Fresh Market days, the Coordinators will use their nutrition education training to host a demo during the lunch hour to encourage Fresh Market participation and share nutrition education information with their friends and classmates.
