FoodCorps is proud to be making a measurable difference for students and schools
More than 75% 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, the children are eating three times as many fruits and vegetables.
We are grateful to the Walmart Foundation for their support of this important piece of our work.
