​​The National Office recognizes the important connection between a healthy diet and physical fitness, and a student's ability to learn effectively and achieve high academic, career technical, and career success standards.

About the Initiative​​

The Food & Nutrition Initiative, a system-wide effort to​ revolutionize food and nutrition services on Job Corps centers, was designed to complement the Healthy Eating and Active Lifestyles program. The initiative responds to the national demand for better food sources, increased nutrition education and addressing physical and mental health problems associated with eating and lifestyle habits. It also reflects the values of former First Lady Michelle Obama's Let's Move​ initiative.

This site is geared towards Job Corps food service managers/supervisors and staff. You will find gradual steps to offer students budget-friendly healthy foods that they will enjoy. Be sure to check out the Healthy E​ating and Active Lifestyles​ website for more information on this important topic.​​
