FoodCorps Applications are open

Today’s the day: Applications are open!

Are you ready to serve up change? Applications are now open for our next class of FoodCorps AmeriCorps service members!

As a service member, you’ll connect kids to healthy food in school, from the classroom to the garden to the cafeteria. We encourage you to apply early; we are reviewing applications on a rolling basis until the deadline, so early applicants will hear back sooner.

Apply now!

What makes a great service member? A motivated leader who’s passionate about food education and eager to serve—especially in a community you call home. Your unique strengths will shape your service; you’ll use your interests and talents (plus our program resources!) to get kids excited about healthy food.

You’ll grow through your service, too. In addition to a stipend, you’ll get access to dozens of resources and training opportunities and gain a network of inspired food education colleagues. After your service, our alumni program can help you make meaningful connections and build your career.

Applications will be considered on a rolling basis through March 13, so apply early! If you need some inspiration to get started, check out last year’s Q&A with a few FoodCorps alums. We can’t wait to read your application!
