Do you know about FoodCorps?

Written by Barbara Storper, MS, RD

Do you know about FoodCorps? They’re a great organization that sends young people throughout the country to help promote healthy food systems and sustainable practices. We had the wonderful opportunity to work with FoodCorps folks in Gallup, New Mexico. They had a farm where students were able to plant and harvest crops and ran a wholesome bakery that employed local workers. With some of the money that they made at the bakery, the FoodCorps members brought our K-5 nutrition education assembly, FOODPLAY, to some of the local schools. They used our program to get everyone on board with healthy eating and active living. It was an amazing experience and we heartily recommend that anyone interested in building a healthy future for kids think about working with FoodCorps! For more information, visit their website:
