Wake County Food Security Program
Wake County Cooperative Extension is integrated within Wake County Human Services, allowing us to address hunger, youth development, and public health all from one office. Since March 2020 we have served over 8.6 million meals and have vaccinated 100,000 of our residents. Covid-19 continues to impact our community, and our office takes an integrated, community centered approach to our service model. We are seeking six motivated individuals to assist with meal and food distribution to food insecure families, to provide information, education, and access to Covid-19 testing and vaccination, and to serve vulnerable youth at 4H Summer Day Camps. We are seeking responsible, flexible and enthusiastic team players who are eager to learn about public health and serve the community. Applicants must have some availability on evenings and weekends and reliable transportation.
