In the media: Recent grad sharing passion for health with FoodCorps

A 2011 UW-Green Bay alumnus continues to make news with his passion for healthy living, sharing his story of transformation as he works to inspire others. Human Biology grad Daniel J. Schultz is now working in Des Moines, Iowa, with FoodCorps, an AmeriCorps offshoot that works to deliver hands-on nutrition education, build and tend school gardens and bring high-quality local food to public school cafeterias. We told you last fall that Schultz had been featured on the CBS Evening News and in a New York Times food columnist’s blog as a member of FoodCorps’ inaugural class. Now Schultz, who overcame his own struggle with weight as an adolescent, has shared his story with The Des Moines Register. The article coincides with the much-anticipated HBO documentary “The Weight of the Nation,” which premieres this week. For more on Schultz, his inspiration and his work, see the full story.
