20-21 Whidbey Island Nourishes Elementary School Program
Whidbey Island Nourishes (WIN) is a volunteer-powered, nonprofit organization dedicated to nourishing youth on South Whidbey Island by providing no-cost, ready-to-eat healthy meals. Recognizing the challenges that most children have to meet the recommended daily servings of fruit and vegetables, in January of 2020, WIN launched a snack program for all students, K-4 at South Whidbey Elementary School. The program delivers fresh fruit and vegetables 2 times a week to classrooms and as much as possible, uses produce harvested from the school district's School Farms Program. The position seeks an AmeriCorps member to serve at South Whidbey Elementary School to help gradually grow the snack program from 2 days a week to 5, to develop nutrition messaging for students and their families and to assist with teaching health and nutrition to PE classes. Interviews for the position will be held in May.

Will serve directly with WIN staff to help procure produce from vendors (the School Farm, local farms and grocery suppliers). Will coordinate parent and community volunteers and lead in the preparation and delivery of snacks to the classrooms. Will serve directly with students, teachers and administrators, parents and community members to help promote the benefits of the snack program and the impact of healthy eating.
