This article features Jennifer Shukaitis, MPH of the Department of Family and Community Health Services at Rutgers Cooperative Extension… FoodCorps is a national nonprofit that operates in 17 states and Washington, DC. The organization works by putting FoodCorps members into schools to help connect kids from preschool to 12th grade with real food… "There are three pillars of the program. One is knowledge, which is the food education piece. The second is engagement. This involves hands-on gardening and teaching kids where food comes from. Third is access to fresh food, which we do with farm-to-school programs to boost the amount of fresh healthy foods served like fruits and vegetables," said Shukaitis.
