25 full-time AmeriCorps members will lead educational programs and conduct outreach to provide support, resources, tools, and access to locally grown fresh produce for students, families, and community members through school garden programs, farm stands, and community workshops in schools and surrounding communities primarily on the West and South sides of Chicago. The AmeriCorps members will provide students, family members, and community members with access to locally grown, fresh food by building their knowledge and skills to grow food in their own communities, combat food inequality, increase their health knowledge, and make healthy decisions for their future.
