Who We Are:

FoodCorps believes every school should be a healthy school and every child – regardless of race, place, or class – deserves to be well-nourished and ready to learn. In underserved communities across the country, our AmeriCorps leaders teach students about healthy food through hands-on lessons, partner with teachers and schools to create nutritious and delicious school meals, and collaborate with communities to ensure a long-term culture of health. Building on this foundation of direct impact, FoodCorps pursues systemic strategies that will benefit all of our nation’s 100,000 schools.

What We’re Looking For:

FoodCorps seeks a motivated and passionate individual to lead, coach, and support a cohort of 10 FoodCorps service members and FoodCorps programming in Arkansas under the direction of the Arkansas Program Associate Director.

They will have experience leading teams and be excited to support rising leaders. Successful candidates will be mission-driven with a passion for national service.

This full-time position will begin as a remote position and will require frequent in-state and occasional out of state travel.
