Spend a year growing healthy food, kids, and community: join Montana’s FoodCorps!
The Grow Montana coalition seeks seven full-time AmeriCorps VISTA FoodCorps members to build and tend school gardens, help cafeterias serve locally-grown meals, and educate students about how and why to eat healthy, locally-grown food. All while earning a living stipend and education award, and enjoying beautiful Big Sky country. The seven positions will be located primarily in Montana rural areas and tribal reservations--what a great chance to experience Montana! This is a full year, fulltime commitment.
(You'll need to apply to become an AmeriCorp/Vista volunteer first--but that's no big deal).
A partnership between Grow Montana, Montana Campus Compact, and Communities in Action, the FoodCorps team will benefit from the support of a diverse network of statewide leaders experienced in fighting poverty and building community-based food systems.
