“We were drawn to working with FoodCorps because their superpower starts with food education. We admire the way they use their impact to drive towards larger systemic change in policy, culture, and the school food marketplace, and we wanted to join forces to bring about even more change. Sweetgreen will help to strengthen FoodCorps’ core programming and support FoodCorps’ work to re-envision school cafeterias using a human centered design approach to develop scalable, school cafeteria programming that both guides students to make healthier choices and creates a more welcoming, inclusive and joyful cafeteria experience.” —Nathaniel Ru, Co-Founder and Chief Brand Officer of sweetgreen
