FoodCorps Service Positions in Petoskey, MI

Groundwork Center for Resilient Communities is looking for our next round of FoodCorps service members (and so is Detroit, Flint and Muskegon!) to connect kids to healthy food in school, make real food a part of the curriculum, and create a future in which every school is a healthy school, and every child is well-nourished and ready to learn. 

Are you or someone you know planning to apply? Submit your application by April 1 to guarantee your application will be reviewed before any slots are filled. If you submit your application before April 15, your application will be received before the second round of interviews, giving you another chance to be considered. 

Share share share!
If you're not applying but know someone who might be interested, forward them this email or the link to apply!

Applications are now being accepted for those interested in joining our 2021-2022 FoodCorps AmeriCorps cohort. In Michigan, we are accepting applications to serve an 11.5-month term with our site partners in Detroit, Flint, Muskegon, and the Petoskey region. FoodCorps Michigan has connected over 50,000 children to healthy food in schools across the state since 2010. We complement school district wellness objectives by placing FoodCorps' trained AmeriCorps members in kindergarten through 8th-grade classes, as well as school district offices. 

Our program attracts people of all ages and backgrounds with interests in elementary education, dietetics, nutrition education, culinary arts management, public health, public policy, sustainable environmental programs, gardening education, and social justice programs. You can earn $22,000 plus receive health insurance benefits and a $6,345 award for educational expenses, including repayment of loans for those who complete their term of service. We review applications on a rolling basis. Please apply before April 1 to guarantee your application will be reviewed before any slots are filled. Service terms begin in August 2021. Questions??? Contact FoodCorps MI Program Coordinator Quan Blunt at

Feel free to share Groundwork's Facebook post about it as well.
