About FoodCorps and Target
Since 2015, FoodCorps and Target have joined together to connect kids to healthy food in schools. Target, FoodCorps’ National Champion for Healthy Kids, enabled us to launch our Sprout Scouts program in 2016. Sprout Scouts is a national program that provides FoodCorps AmeriCorps service members with the resources and activities needed to teach students about cooking, gardening, and nutrition through hands-on learning. This year, support from Target has enabled the launch of FoodCorps in-school lesson plans, along with the training and coaching that enable our AmeriCorps members to deliver the best hands-on learning.
