Lake Health District is in its fourth year of hosting a FoodCorps service member. FoodCorps service members work with schools and community partners to connect kids with healthy food in schools. In Lakeview, members have helped with school garden projects at Union and Fremont elementary schools. They work with cafeteria staff to make sure kids have access to nutritious food. Service members work directly with children in Union, Fremont, and A.D. Hay classrooms to teach them about nutrition and gardening. They support teachers in finding ways to use school gardens to teach math, science, reading, and more.

The 2019-2020 FoodCorps service member is Helena Van Brande. If you want to learn more about FoodCorps or Helena's role in Lakeview, email her at
