Program Overview (from the program website):

FoodCorps places motivated leaders in limited-resource communities for a year of public service. Working under the direction of local partner organizations, we implement a three-ingredient recipe for healthy kids. Our Service Members:

- Deliver hands-on nutrition education
- Build and tend school gardens
- Bring high-quality local food into public school cafeterias

As a service member, you will be placed with one service site for your year-long term. Service sites operate under ten host sites, each of which is located in a different state: Arizona, Arkansas, Iowa, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, Mississippi, New Mexico, North Carolina and Oregon. Pending funding, FoodCorps will expand into Connecticut and Montana for the 2012-2013 service term.

Visit WHERE YOU’LL SERVE to learn more about our host sites, their work, the service sites they partner with, and what your service might look like in each location.
