Georgia Organics and FoodCorps Go Green in the Classroom

The state of Georgia is big on growing fruits and veggies - in fact, we’re number four in the country. But when it comes to eating them? We could use some help. That’s where FoodCorps, a farm-to-school organization, and Georgia Organics step up to the veggie-lacking plate. The two are joining forces to bring hands-on nutrition education programs to schools that are seeking improvement in healthy eating habits. Georgia Organics was the first to introduce the Peach State to farm-to-school programs and continues to lead the pack for the National Farm to School Network. It’s not too late to join in on the green goodness from FoodCorps and Georgia Organics, applications are available until March 30 and can be found online
