About FoodCorps: Together with communities, FoodCorps serves to connect kids to healthy food in school. Founded in 2010, FoodCorps has a holistic vision for transforming the role of food in schools, believing every school should be a healthy school and every child – regardless of race, place, or class – deserves to be well nourished and ready to learn. In historically marginalized communities in 18 states, their 250+ AmeriCorps leaders teach students about healthy food through hands-on lessons in classrooms and gardens, promote nutritious and delicious school meals in cafeterias, and collaborate with school and community stakeholders to foster a thriving school climate and a long-term culture of health. Building on this foundation of direct impact, and leveraging the leadership trajectories of its AmeriCorps alumni, FoodCorps pursues an ambitious agenda for systems change. Through policy and advocacy efforts, FoodCorps champions state and federal reforms that strengthen healthy food education and access at scale. FoodCorps has also recently launched reWorking Lunch, a cross-sector initiative that brings together senior decision-makers across the school food system to take collective action that leverages the $18B our country spends on school meal programs annually towards better health outcomes for kids. Across its work, FoodCorps pursues a future where healthier, more sustainable food is abundant and easily accessible for our nation’s kids at school, where school food is an engine for health, wealth, and equity in our communities, and where students receive daily opportunities to be nourished and cared for.
