Welcome to Our New Foods Corps Representative

Samantha Kappmeier

Samantha Kappmeier

Scotland County, North Carolina

A series of events big and small led Samantha to join FoodCorps. From a simple conversation with her niece, who knew only that food came from supermarkets, to a personal illness resulting from a nutrient-deficient diet, she became inspired to contribute to building awareness of real food, its origins, and the farm to table movement. Originally from New Jersey, she is excited to experience the food, culture and community of North Carolina. She will work with Scotland County schools and communities to help connect kids with real food so that they can grow up healthy through nutrition education, growing and maintaining gardens and cooking the food they grow. Her favorite quote is “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food” by Hippocrates.
