FoodCorps: Americorps manpower for school gardens and school food
Imagine AmeriCorps service members building and tending school gardens and developing Farm to School programs for public schools around the country.
That’s the vision for FoodCorps, a new project in a year-long planning phase; I’m proud to say Slow Food USA is a part of it!
We’ve had some tremendous coverage these past few weeks: in the Washington Post, on Serious Eats, on Mark Bittman’s new “slog,” and on the blog 5 second rule.
Our next open conference call to discuss the planning process is tomorrow. Catch up on the latest news about the program’s development and find out how you can get involved. The topic of this week’s call is an overview of the structure of the FoodCorps planning process and information on ways you can become involved.
This Thursday May 6, 5pm Eastern
