FoodCorps’ School District Partnerships

Working together to achieve your district’s goals.

FoodCorps has over ten years of experience partnering with schools and districts. We provide advisory, planning, and programmatic capacity to district teams working to ensure students have access to nourishing meals, food education, and culturally affirming experiences with food that celebrate and nurture the whole child. We align our program offerings to the outcomes your district is working toward and together we set multi-year goals using FoodCorps’ suite of partnership planning tools.

FoodCorps’ signature program offering for district partners is our nationally recognized capacity-adding AmeriCorps service program. FoodCorps members serve alongside educators, school staff, and school nutrition leaders to offer hands-on, experiential learning in gardens and classrooms, cafeteria taste tests and meal-time experience enhancements, and create opportunities for families to engage in school-wide wellness events and programs.

Along with our staff support and service program, partnership with FoodCorps includes access to a collection of evidence-based tools and resources.

“FoodCorps educates students about proper nutrition, makes them active and invested learners, and engages parents and the community—all while supporting educational achievement and mastery of the Common Core.”

— Allan Taylor, Chair, Connecticut State Board of Education
