Be part of what Michael Pollan calls “a great adventure, and one of your generation’s most important projects: to make good, clean, just, and healthy food accessible to all Americans.” Be part of the solution, join FoodCorps:
All over this country there are children who need a connection to healthy food. At the same time, there are future public health leaders, future chefs and future farmers trying to launch their careers during tough economic times.
The good news is we have a solution. Today, FoodCorps launches recruitment for its next class of AmeriCorps service members!
We are seeking up to 100 future leaders to address childhood obesity and food insecurity through our three-ingredient recipe for change: providing hands-on nutrition education, growing school gardens, and getting healthy local food into the school cafeteria. FoodCorps service members join the AmeriCorps service network and receive a $15,000 stipend plus other benefits in return for a year of full-time public service improving the health of vulnerable kids.
Service member Graham Downey in Mississippi told us why he loves being part of FoodCorps: “My ‘entry-level position’ involves deep responsibility for real-world projects that directly improve lives. My ‘workplace’ is a garden.”
Join our team in 2012 and make your home base a garden.
