FoodCorps is proud to be making a measurable difference for students and schools

About 73% of FoodCorps schools had measurably healthier school food environments by the end of the school year, and in schools with more of FoodCorps’ hands-on learning activities, children are eating up to three times as many fruits and vegetables.

We are grateful to the Walmart Foundation for their support of this important piece of our work.
