In August the Wake Food Security AmeriCorps VISTA program had a bittersweet send off to three full-time AmeriCorps VISTA members, Danny Makavarage (Long-Range Planning), Beverly Parks (Summer Food Program), and Ruthie Wofford (Capital Area Food Network) in addition to our 16 VISTA Summer Associates. AmeriCorps members

Two new VISTAs arrived this September and are quickly finding their path.

Erin Gallagher

Erin Gallagher relocated from Charlotte, North Carolina and is working with Capital Area Food Network to develop communication and branding guides.

Joshua Okrend

Joshua Okrend, a Raleigh native, is housed with Wake County Long Range Planning. Josh’s background in applied mathematics is allowing him to put fresh eyes on food security data and mapping techniques.

Hannah Taylor has been serving with Social and Economic Vitality and will be wrapping up her term at the beginning of November. We are so proud of all our VISTAs as they move forward in their careers and continue to make positive impacts in their communities. We are currently taking applications for three VISTA positions, including the Summer Food Service Program Coordinator, the School and Community Garden Program Coordinator, and the Social and Economic Vitality Strategist. Interviews will be held Oct 15-17, and hiring will be made on October 19. Interested applicants should apply through My AmeriCorps. The first day of Service will be November 13, 2019, and terms last for a year.
