Farm to School

Foodcorps

FoodCorps is a national nonprofit service organization that describes its purpose as connecting “kids to healthy food in school, so they can lead healthier lives and reach their full potential.” Focused on high-needs schools, members serve where 50% or more of students qualify for free or reduced lunch. Your involvement enables this essential program to continue.

In 2011, Groundwork became a founding service site for FoodCorps, and today we remain a FoodCorps service site, with a service member active in schools in Boyne Falls, Pellston, Alanson and East Jordan. Through FoodCorps, our staff and service members work directly with school administrators to prepare hands-on lessons, improve the health of lunches and create a healthy food culture.

Please contact Groundwork Local Food Policy Specialist, Jen Schaap for more information about how FoodCorps programming can help your school’s children establish lifelong healthy food skills.
