FoodCorps is a non-partisan, non-profit organization. FoodCorps staff and FoodCorps AmeriCorps members may not participate in any partisan or seemingly partisan activities during work time charged to a Corporation for National and Community Service funded grant or while earning AmeriCorps service hours. No federal funds were used to prepare or distribute these advocacy actions.

We just took an exciting step forward in protecting national service and the health of our nation’s kids. Congress has signed into law a bipartisan spending bill for the 2018 federal fiscal year, and while the bill as a whole is a mixed bag, it does include wins for national service and healthy-food education—progress that your voices helped make happen.
