Media and Project Development Intern Allergic to Salad

  • Date Posted August 13, 2019

Company description

Allergic to Salad is a health-based youth culinary program. We offer hands-on, from-scratch CORE- and STEM-based cooking classes to after-school and in-school programs for students aged preK through high school. 

We realize many claim they are “allergic to salad”– a convenient and understandable excuse in this era of pre-packaged industrialized food.
