Applications now open to nourish kids' futures

We believe every child, in every school, should experience the joy and power of food. That work starts in classrooms, cafeterias, and school gardens—and it starts with you.

We’re looking for our next cohort of leaders. Apply now to teach, learn, and grow alongside kids in schools.
