About FoodCorps

FoodCorps partners with schools and communities to nourish kids’ health, education, and sense of belonging so that every child, in every school, experiences the joy and power of food. Our AmeriCorps members serve alongside educators and school nutrition leaders to provide kids with nourishing meals, food education, and culturally affirming experiences with food that celebrate and nurture the whole child. Building on this direct service, FoodCorps advocates for policy change, grows networks, and develops leaders in service of every kid’s health and well-being. Our goal is that by 2030, every child will have access to food education and nourishing food in school.


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. ”
