Our Mission:
FoodCorps partners with schools and communities to nourish kids’ health, education, and sense of belonging.

Our Vision:
Every child, in every school, experiences the joy and power of food.

Our 2030 Goal:
By 2030, every child has access to food education and nourishing food in schools.

The Problem We’re Trying to Solve:
School is where kids grow and learn—physically, academically, and emotionally. For many kids, it’s also the place where they eat as many as two out of three of their daily meals, and where they build relationships with food that will last a lifetime. Too often, systemic racism and classism impact both kids’ access to food and their opportunities to learn about it, though access to nourishing meals is a foundation for every child’s ability to learn. We can set kids up for greater success—at school and throughout their lives—by ensuring that schools provide them with nourishing meals, comprehensive food education, and culturally affirming experiences with food.

FoodCorps works in schools to get kids excited about eating fruits and veggies, support school nutrition staff in getting nourishing meals on the lunch tray, and create welcoming school environments for kids of all cultures and identities. FoodCorps provides hands-on food education to more than 40,000 students each year. Our hands-on, place-based education and culturally responsive teaching help to meet the needs of all learners, support kids’ social and emotional growth, and help teach academic concepts, too.
