FoodCorps to Fix Lunches

A new national service program aims to combat the national obesity epidemic through school lunches.

A new national service program dedicated to fighting the national obesity epidemic is now seeking applications for its first class of service members. FoodCorps, funded by AmeriCorps and the W.K. Kellog Foundation, seeks to improve the health of America’s children by expanding nutrition education, sourcing healthy, local food for schools, and building gardens. Debra Eschmeyer, FoodCorps program director, says, “Schools—their classrooms, cafeterias, and playgrounds—are the logical frontlines in our nation’s response to childhood obesity.” Eighty FoodCorps members will work in 10 states that are considered “hotbeds” of the epidemic, including Arkansas, Massachusetts, and North Carolina.
