FoodCorps Launches National Service Program

Yesterday, FoodCorps launched its national service program. Here’s a little about the organization from its website:

“FoodCorps places motivated young leaders in limited-resource communities for a year of public service. Working under the direction of local partner organizations, we implement a three-ingredient recipe for healthy kids. Our Service Members:

  • Deliver hands-on nutrition education
  • Build and tend school gardens
  • Bring high-quality local food into public school cafeterias”

Wow — first of all, this is a fantastic program. Second, it completely aligns with our own goals at Miller Community Center Garden.

This is a large and exciting drop in the food movement bucket. I encourage anyone interested to check out their website and possibly even fill out an application for a year of service, or, if you aren’t ready or able to commit that much, to being a part-time volunteer. Who knows – maybe we can get FoodCorp involved with the MCCG!
