Applications Invited for General Mills Champions Youth Nutrition and Fitness Grants
Deadline: February 1, 2005

The American Dietetic Association Foundation, the President’s Challenge, and the General Mills Foundation are partnering to improve youth nutrition and fitness through the General Mills Champions program. The initiative consists of grants to community-based groups as well as three additional components: sponsorship of the President’s Active Lifestyle Awards, developing nutrition and fitness mentoring models, and sharing best practices.

The goal of the program is to encourage communities in the United States to improve the eating and physical activity patterns of young people, ages 2-20.

The General Mills Foundation will award fifty $10,000 grants to not-for-profit organizations with innovative programs that help youth develop good nutrition and fitness habits. Grants will be awarded to 501(c)(3) and 509(a) not-for-profit organizations and agencies working with communities that demonstrate the greatest need and likelihood of sustainable impact on young people’s nutrition and activity levels.

See the General Mills Web site for complete program information and application guidelines.
