The 2021-2022 school year was marked by heightened anxiety, supply chain shortages, the exodus of educators, and the economic hit of the pandemic. Yet, we were encouraged to see our service and staff members assist in the recovery of in-person school and innovate to take food equity to the next level.
FoodCorps’ year of service gave more students—in areas where systemic racism and classism persist—access to enriching, learning experiences about food and culturally-affirming, nourishing meals. Beyond service, we mobilized our alumni, partner, and advocacy networks—centering BIMPOC* voices—to push for broader impact and policy change.
Thanks to the incredible support we received from our generous donors, school communities, and partners, this year also catalyzed the launch of our 2030 goal—where every child has access to hands-on food education and nourishing food in schools.
