Ok, so last week’s jobs report might have been a bummer, but here’s some good news for those of you seeking a new gig: FoodCorps is recruiting!
Now working in 15 states (and soon to add Georgia and Washington D.C.), FoodCorps is a nationwide team of leaders that connects kids to real food and helps them grow up healthy. Service members are provided with a stipend, health care, and training, and in return dedicate one year of full-time public service in school food systems – expanding hands-on nutrition education programs, building and tending school gardens, and bringing high quality local foods into school cafeterias.
For its fourth class of leaders, FoodCorps seeks up to 175 men and women with a passion for serving their country as AmeriCorps service members. Details about the recruitment and application process can be found here; the deadline is March 30, 2014.
Intrigued by this idea? Here’s what you can do to keep up:
