Seaton Elementary

Seaton Elementary is very committed to providing a learning environment for students that emphasizes the importance of health and wellness. We have an active wellness committee and have competed for gold and silver status with the Alliance for a Healthier Generation multiple times. We have a large school garden that includes edible growing space as well as space for nature play and environmental exploration.

Having a Food Corps member on site to help strengthen our current programs by involving a higher percentage of our students will really solidify our focus on wellness as a core value of our school. In a typical week, a service member at Seaton Elementary might support food distribution days with DC Food Project, lead a garden work day, or integrating food education into grade level curriculum.

FoodCorps DC Metro members join a close-knit cohort serving BIMPOC communities in our nation’s capital. In addition to free museums, a thriving urban agriculture network, and a backyard that includes Rock Creek Park, DC Metro service members have access to D.C.’s metro and bus system and bike-friendly streets to ease the daily commute. Come to support DC’s diverse student population as they build stronger relationships with food, stay for the opportunity to work with amazing DC leaders and eat some of the best pupusas, Ethiopian food, and half smokes you’ll ever try.

Preferred Qualifications

  • Gardening and cooking experience
  • Experience working with elementary and / or early childhood students
  • Ability to organize volunteers and engage families
  • Interest in food security efforts
  • Someone who feels comfortable managing projects independently
