Food & Nutrition Services would like to welcome Sadie Richards, our new Food Corps member! Food Corps is a pilot program of Americorps which aims to provide nutrition education in schools, build school gardens, and bring more local food into school lunches. Sadie will be working with Kim Szeto and the Farm to School Initiative to continue work with bringing local food into cafeterias. She will also be spending much of her time building and maintaining a school garden at Dearborn Middle School and working closely with faculty and teachers there to incorporate food and nutrition curriculum into the classroom. Sadie is part of a broader team of six Food Corps members working around the Greater Boston area with The Food Project and City Sprouts.  We welcome Food Corps to Massachusetts and are excited about the work they will be doing this year and the seeds they will sow in our schools.
