Our Farm to School program is proud to host a FoodCorps member.
FoodCorps –a national service program that is part of AmeriCorps–strives to address childhood obesity and food insecurity in communities around the country.
FoodCorps members dedicate one year of full-time public service in school food systems: sourcing healthy local food for school cafeterias, delivering hands-on nutrition education programs, and building and tending school gardens. At the Corvallis Environmental Center, our FoodCorps member works with students in the Corvallis School District teaching our Classroom Food Adventures program leading field trips to SAGE.
FoodCorps is recruiting! Applications are being accepted through March 15, 2017 for the 2017-2018 FoodCorps year. For more information and to apply, visit FoodCorps.org.
