If they grow it, they will eat it
One row of vegetables, one row of herbs, one row of community spirit, one row of better school food, one row of good neighborhoods
Norris Guscott and Andy Harding, two Lynn residents in their early 20s, are among the first group of participants in FoodCorps, a newly launched national service organization formed to fight the childhood obesity epidemic. It takes a three-pronged approach: providing nutrition education, bringing healthy local food into school cafeterias, and creating and expanding school garden programs. Working in a garden at the Robert L. Ford School, they teach students about growing food and eating well.
