  • Traverse Bay Area Intermediate School District posted a Nutrition Facilitator position to provide nutrition education through taste-testing and cooking demonstrations in low-income schools. Elena Mosher, TBAISD's Farm to School Coordinator, says, "The position will support our SNAP education program, which provides direct education to K-5 graders focused on growing, cooking, and eating local, healthy foods. The goal is to make fruits, vegetables, and other nutritious foods fun and exciting, and expose students to new foods." Posted until filled. (See attachment.)
  • FoodCorps, a national organization connecting students to healthy food, has openings through Groundwork's Petoskey office, and at other sites across the state and country. Two of the three service members in Petoskey would continue to conduct hands-on lessons and build a schoolwide culture of health in Alanson, Boyne Falls, East Jordan, and Pellston schools. FoodCorps invited Groundwork to participate in a nationwide pilot, creating the third opportunity focusing on school meal quality and ultimately what ends up on cafeteria trays. Applications are reviewed as they are submitted. Contact for more info.
