FDN Cooking Intern

Internship Description

The Family Dinner Night intern is a part of the FDN team that provides a weekly, family-style dinner for the Madison community that is sourced from local and seasonal ingredients. FDN interns help with recipe planning, scaling, and cooking in the kitchen. They also have the opportunities to help organize meal collaborations and source for the meals at local farmer’s markets. This internship is a great way to “dip your toes” into the Slow Food UW community while also contributing greatly to one of the branches of Slow Food UW’s weekly operations. Prior kitchen experience is appreciated, but not required. FDN happens almost every Monday night at 6:30pm. This meal includes three courses and uses a “Pay What You Can” donation system.
