About FoodCorps

FoodCorps believes every school should be a healthy school and every child – regardless of race, place or class – deserves to be well nourished and ready to learn. In underserved communities across the country, our AmeriCorps leaders teach students about healthy food through hands-on lessons, partner with farmers and food service workers to create nutritious and delicious school meals, and collaborate with communities to insure a long-term culture of health. Building on this foundation of direct impact, FoodCorps pursues systemic strategies that will benefit all of our nation’s 100,000 schools.


Seasonal Assistant

June 2018 - September 2018 Portland, OR
“I worked last summer at FoodCorps in a smaller role, so this year I took on more responsibility. I took on the responsibility of coordinating their National Orientation and gaining tools that I never would have imagined. I booked flights, hotels and schedule meal plans for 300 people. This year I learned more of what FoodCorps represents and realized those 250 service members we work with are so brilliant and it was a privileged to have met them at Orientation. ”
