Food Corps

Hello Laguna Pueblo,

FoodCorps New Mexico is looking for the next cohort of AmeriCorps service members to lead the way in connecting kids to healthy food in schools in 2024-2025. We are hoping you can share this information with your networks.

We are seeking passionate candidates who are ready to dive into 11 months of full time, hands on service. New Mexico Service Members are dispersed throughout New Mexico in Farmington, Las Cruces, Paseo del Norte, and Peñasco. They provide hands-on food and garden lessons, influence healthy school meals, and partner to build school-wide cultures of health. Service members enter service from a variety of fields and interests including food systems change, food sovereignty work, food justice, public health, nutrition, agriculture and education. We are particularly interested in candidates who are from their service community and maintain a commitment to understanding the implications of race and class in the food system by practicing anti-racism. 

Priority submissions for applications are due March 31, 2024 and will be reviewed on a rolling basis. FoodCorps is an equal opportunity organization and we respect, honor, and encourage diversity. FoodCorps does not discriminate on the basis of age, sex, race, color, creed, religion, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, national origin, alienage or citizenship, disability, marital status, military or veteran status, or any other legally recognized protected basis under federal, state, or local laws, regulations or ordinances. Though we hope to in the future, currently FoodCorps is unable to host undocumented or DACA recipients as service members.
