FoodCorps is a fast-growing national nonprofit that provides a scalable response to the epidemics of childhood obesity and food insecurity, while training a new generation of leaders in the fields of food, health, education and sustainability. We place motivated leaders in limited-resource communities for a year of public service transforming school food through a three-pillared approach: 1) knowledge: teaching kids about what healthy food is and where it comes from; 2) engagement: building and tending school gardens where children grow, cook and taste real food; and 3) access: sourcing high-quality local food for school lunches. The efforts of FoodCorps’ service members improve the health of school food environments, making durable changes for students that last beyond their service terms.
