Mission Statement:

Food as Medicine is a Johns Hopkins student group that empowers Waverly Middle School students to be proactive about health and nutrition. Since health and physical education are currently absent from the Waverly school curriculum, this program intends to partially fill that gap. Johns Hopkins students serve as mentors to the program by leading and planning weekly workshops that address the Maryland Core Curriculum Standards for nutrition. Mentors also lead the weekly afterschool health and nutrition program and help to plan health events.
