To the Michigan Farm to School listserve,
As the FoodCorps Michigan Host Site Supervisor, I’m excited to announce that FoodCorps applications are open for new service members for the upcoming program year that begins on September 1, 2015! FoodCorps, a national service organization that connects children in underserved communities to healthy food in order to help them grow up healthy, has opened applications for its fifth annual class of service members. The selected emerging leaders will 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. Here’s a link to a recent article on the current FoodCorps MI program year.
Here in Michigan we are recruiting new service members for 5 of the 10 available openings next year, as our current 2nd year service members will graduate out of the program. There will be two spots available in our Detroit based service sites, two spots available in our Traverse City service site, and one spot in our Sault Ste. Marie service site. We will also be looking to fill the FoodCorps Fellow position for next year (as our current Fellow is term limited), please note that position does require previous experience with the FoodCorps program, either as a service member or a first year Fellow.
Please see the information below and share it with your networks, if you would!
If you have any questions, contact myself or Daniel Marbury, our current FoodCorps MI Fellow, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 231-714-9730.
