SOUTH JERSEY – While most college students took a break from the books over the summer, Meghan Lippa of Norwich, spent eight weeks interning for the Food Bank of South Jersey, a nonprofit in Pennsauken, New Jersey, that provides food to people in need, delivers health and wellness programs, and designs sustainable solutions to help people improve their lives.

Currently attending Niagara University, Lippa was one of 120 students selected for the Shepherd Higher Education Consortium on Poverty (SHECP) 2019 Internship Program.

Students accepted for the program live and work with fellow interns in impoverished communities across the country. Beyond providing valuable support to their assigned agencies, SHECP interns gain a greater understanding of the root causes and consequences of poverty in a wide range of disciplines.
