Subject: Urban Agriculture and Food Systems Spring Internship Opportunity Description: The Agroecology Lab at the University of Maryland is seeking a data analysis intern for the Spring 2022 semester for a project focusing on dietary diversity and urban agriculture. We are interested in understanding how urban farms might be able to help meet micronutrient gaps among people receiving food assistance in Washington DC. The intern will be responsible for cleaning and analyzing qualitative food recall data collected from survey participants in DC over the last year, summarizing the data and assessing it for micronutrient gaps and deficiencies. Our local partner, Martha's Table, hands out fliers about the project survey with their food distributions.
