Friends Eat: FoodCorps Rebuilds Health Through Youth

I’ve read a couple of things about how to get America’s butt working for a healthier lifestyle, and I happen to read through this new initiative called FoodCorps. The website is fun, creative, and you can really tell what it focuses on as far as advocacy is concerned.

It is a  horrible trend that we have been dwelling on throughout the years. The fact that this generation of kids is predicted to have a lower life expectancy than their own parents is more than enough reason to blow our minds and wake us up.

It’s time to move forward and actually be healthy, and FoodCorps knows how to help us in the process.
