What if acres of corn like Ian and Curt’s could be turned into school gardens? King Corn co-creator Curt Ellis is helping to do just that as Co-Founder and CEO of the national nonprofit organization FoodCorps. FoodCorps recruits AmeriCorps leaders for a year of full-time public service in high-obesity, limited-resource public schools. Service members deliver food and nutrition education that teaches kids what healthy food is, build and tend school gardens that engage children and parents in growing fresh food in the schoolyard, and team up with farmers and chefs to get healthy, high-quality ingredients into school lunch.
