Island Harvest

Summer Food Service Program Monitor

June - August 2017 • Hauppauge, NY

What I liked

As a SFSP Monitor, you learn how to simultaneously manage multiple food service sites and their corresponding federal paperwork. Since you work a little more independently than as a team, this job allows you to really learn how to be organized and responsible, which are vital skills that will help you grow as a professional. Furthermore, you help feed low-income children on Long Island; if that won't bring you joy, then I'm not sure what will.

What I wish was different

Nothing, my experience was amazing.


Don't be afraid to contact site supervisors to stay on top of paperwork! That can be challenging, so you have to find a balance between being compassionate and understanding and being in-charge. Also, don't be afraid to ask your fellow monitors for help!
