    The FoodCorps Service Member application is open! FoodCorps Georgia is looking for our next cohort of Service Members for the 2022-2023 school year. 

    What is FoodCorps? 

    FoodCorps is proud to be part of the AmeriCorps service network. This means that we are a grantee of AmeriCorps-receiving a portion of our funding from the federal program-and a member of an impactful service network that includes Habitat for Humanity, City Year, and Teach for America. We place trained FoodCorps AmeriCorps service members in schools across the nation for a year of service. Service members focus on three key areas of service:

    Hands-on Lessons

    Collaborating with educators and school nutrition professionals in elementary schools to teach hands-on lessons integrating school gardens, food preparation, and taste testing.

     Healthy School Meals

    Teaming up with cafeteria staff to support a cafeteria culture that steers students towards the healthiest options and gets them excited to try new healthy foods.

     A Schoolwide Culture of Health

    Getting the whole school community-from principals to the hallways to the bake sales-to celebrate healthy food.

    What do Members gain? 

    In addition to professional experience and continuous professional development, members serving with FoodCorps GA receive:

    •  $22,000 stipend
    • $6,495 Segal Education Award upon successful completion of service
    • Health, dental and vision insurance
    • Student loan forbearance
