Fellows Sought for Fresh Food Program in Covington

Applicants are sought for the latest FreshLo Fellows program at the Center for Great Neighborhoods.

The FreshLo initiative is funded by the Kresge Foundation and is an effort to promote the use of fresh, local food as a platform for neighborhood revitalization within Covington's Westside neighborhood.

Current projects range from growing local produce and urban agriculture to supporting food-related businesses and food-related job training.

The fellows program offers an 8-week project management opportunity for four Covington community members. It pays $11 per hour and averages 12 hours per week at the Center for Great Neighborhoods (321 West Martin Luther King Blvd., Covington(. 

The program starts on August 27.

The final week of the fellowship requires an event or activity for the community hosted by the FreshLo Fellows, who will be provided a budget of $800 to implement their event or activity. 

The Center for Great Neighborhoods seeks enthusiastic candidates who have an interest in community and a desire to learn new skills. Interested individuals should contact Kareem Simpson at The Center for Great Neighborhoods by Friday, August 10th. Email [email protected] or call/text at 859.479.2064. Interviews will be held on Monday, August 13th and Tuesday, August 14th between 9 a.m. and 1p.m.
