Together with communities, FoodCorps serves to connect kids to healthy food in school.

  • About Us
    FoodCorps is a nationwide team of AmeriCorps leaders who connect kids to real food and help them grow up healthy. Through our partnership with AmeriCorps, we recruit, train and place emerging leaders into limited-resource schools for a year of service implementing our three-ingredient recipe for healthy kids.

    Our service members provide:

    Knowledge: food and nutrition education that gives kids the information they need to make smart choices
    Engagement: hands-on activities like gardening and cooking that foster skills and pride around healthy food
    Access: lunch trays filled with nutritious meals from local farms
  • Our Impact
    FoodCorps is creating a future in which all our nation’s children know what healthy food is, care where it comes from, and have access to it every day. When our work is done, generations that follow will grow up enveloped in a vibrant school food environment––and will go on to lead healthier, more productive and longer lives.
