FoodCorps

MISSION
Together with communities, FoodCorps serves to connect kids to healthy food in school.
 
VISION
We are creating a future in which all our nation’s children regardless of race, place, or class know what healthy food is, care where it comes from, and eat it every day. Through our work, future generations will grow up to lead healthier and more productive lives.
THREE AREAS OF SERVICE
Our AmeriCorps leaders deliver the FoodCorps program in high-need schools, focusing on three evidence-based strategies that get children eating healthy:

Hands on Learning Hands-On Learning:
Students grow, cook, and taste new foods, which builds their skills and changes food preferences.

HEALTHY SCHOOL MEALSHealthy School Meals:
The cafeteria experience steers students towards the healthiest options and gets them excited to try new healthy foods.

SCHOOLWIDE CULTURE OF HEALTHSchoolwide Culture of Health:
As a whole, the school community and environment from hallways to classrooms to cafeteria to grounds celebrates healthy food.
 
FoodCorps is part of the AmeriCorps National Service Network
 
Community Collaborations
 
The goal of collaborations is to bring individuals, agencies, organizations and community members themselves together in an atmosphere of support to systematically solve existing and emerging problems that could not easily be solved by one group alone.
