Overview of the Phat Beets Allyship Program
The Phat Beets Allyship is based on the framework of a traditional internship program with an emphasis on supporting local leaders. The positions are called Allyships instead of Internships because Allies work alongside community in a supportive role and not necessarily in a leadership role. The program provides an opportunity to work in the field of food justice while participating in an active Anti-Oppression study group. The program works to provide a framework for effective, simultaneous development of both programmatic and personal development work in the field of food justice. Allyships generally require a minimum commitment of around 10 hours per week for 3 months. Allies should finish the Allyship with a better understanding of what goes into funding a collective, community-based organization as well as a better understanding of how to create equitable farmers’ markets, and basic themes of food justice
