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:

  • getting students excited about healthy food
  • getting students to eat more healthy food during school meals and build the healthy habits they need to do it outside of school, too
  • increasing students’ understanding of which foods are good for them and why
