Job Description/Qualification

Every student deserves fair and equal access to healthy food. United Way of King County’s Fuel Your Future aims to break down the barriers to healthy food in high-needs schools, particularly in communities of color and in immigrant and migrant communities. Help reduce childhood hunger by partnering with some of Washington’s highest-needs school districts to increase participation in federal meals programs, including school breakfast, afterschool meals, and summer meals.

Program Overview
United Way of King County’s vision is to build a community where people have homes, students graduate, and families are financially stable. We are committed to ensuring children, especially children of color, have access to nutritious foods.
Fuel Your Future is one of United Way’s anti-poverty programs, and focuses on connecting students and families to healthy food resources. More than 1 in 6 students in our state experiences food insecurity each year, and more than 10% of families live below the poverty line. There are a number of federally funded programs aimed at connecting families with healthy food, but they are critically underused. Fuel Your Future is a nationally recognized, innovative program aimed at removing the barriers that prevent families from accessing these programs, while also connecting youth with nutrition education and other food resources.

Fuel Your Future Team
Fuel Your Future is a team of leaders across Washington State to address childhood hunger. As a Food Access AmeriCorps member, you will serve with a high-needs school district, and work in collaboration with school district staff, schools, and community-based organizations. Each placement is tailored to the unique needs of the school district and community you will be serving, though all Food Access AmeriCorps members can expect to support schools as they implement or sustain Breakfast After the Bell.
Breakfast After the Bell makes breakfast a part of the school day, reducing stigma and ensuring all students are fueled and ready to learn. Nationally, in addition to high breakfast participation rates, schools that implement this innovative breakfast model report better attendance, fewer disciplinary issues, and higher test scores. Washington has exciting new school breakfast legislation that means that in the 2019-20 school year over 165,000 students in 390 high-needs schools across Washington will have the chance to get the critical school breakfasts they need every day.

Toppenish, WA
Yakima, WA
