Editorial Lauds FoodCorps Program

A Bangor Daily News editorial about combating childhood obesity said that the University of Maine Cooperative Extension-hosted FoodCorps, an extension of the national AmeriCorps program that foments community and school gardening, along with healthy food choices, is a promising way to educate people about healthier lifestyles and ways to improve. The program is particularly effective, the editorial said, because it is expanding and builds community connections that will last beyond the life of the FoodCorps program.
