What is FoodCorps? 

FoodCorps partners with schools and communities to nourish kids’ health, education, and sense of belonging.

What You’ll Do

With FoodCorps, you’ll spend a year teaching kids about food in gardens, cafeterias, and classrooms. You’ll earn a stipend, professional development resources, and plenty of other benefits. Best of all, you’ll build connections with a network of passionate school food champions.
Your service year is a full-time, eleven-month commitment from August to July. You can choose one of two tracks:

  • School Nutrition – You’ll work alongside school nutrition leaders to procure and promote nourishing school meals.

What are the Benefits?

You’ll receive:

  • Living Stipend – $33,000 for the full 11-month term
  • Segal AmeriCorps Education Award – An award of $6,895, available after completion of your service term, for repaying qualified student loans and paying current educational expenses at eligible institutions of higher education and training programs
  • Health Insurance – Health, dental, and vision coverage
  • Professional Development – A year’s worth of trainings—and a passionate community of peers—to prepare you for a career in food education, school nutrition, policy, or another relevant field
