Connecting kids to healthy food in school

Athens Land Trust partners with FoodCorps and Clarke County School District to provide in-school and after-school education.

As a host site, FoodCorps service members work directly with students and teachers to provide hands on learning in the classroom and garden, role modeling and taste testing in the cafeteria and help to promote a school wide culture of health.

The ultimate goal of this partnership is to connect kids to healthy food in schools.
