Through interactive exhibits, educational seminars, unique content, events and programming, Foodseum provides a window into the history, people, farm-to-fork transformations, preparations, international flavors and more behind the food we all enjoy.

Foodseum is searching for an outgoing and energetic self-starter with a passion for food, culture and education. The Graphic Design Intern will report to both the Director of Marketing and the Director of Graphic Design, and will be responsible for the creation of online and physical marketing and advertising materials.
