Healthy food is an essential building block for a full life. But right now, we’ve got a generation of children that is overweight, vulnerable to diet-related disease, and more likely to suffer from a variety of health problems which will hold them back throughout their lifetimes.

Every day, in high-need schools in communities nationwide, FoodCorps tackles this problem by fostering school environments that:

  • Increase children’s understanding of healthy food
  • Increase their excitement to try new foods that are good for them
  • Increase children’s consumption of fruits and vegetables
  • Enable new healthy eating habits and increased opportunities to eat healthy food on a daily basis at school
