Gulf States Office Collaborates with FoodCorps Members
The NCAT Gulf States Office has been meeting with Food Corps members in Mississippi and are developing plans for joint projects.
The Gulf States Office operates out of the Mississippi Roadmap to Health Equity building in the old New Deal Grocery on the Jackson Medical Mall campus. Roadmap sponsors the FoodCorps members here and they are working at local schools teaching kids about healthy food and lifestyles.
We are excited to be helping with developing local gardens and a greenhouse with the FoodCorps members and Roadmap!
