Grant Program to Fund Fresh Produce Programs at Elementary Schools
Deadline: November 7, 2008
The Love Your Veggies grant program (http://www.loveyourveggiesgrants.org/) is sponsored by the makers of Hidden Valley Salad Dressings in partnership with the School Nutrition Foundation (http://www.schoolnutrition.org/) and is supported by Produce for Better Health Foundation (http://www.5aday.org/). The program will award grants to elementary schools (grades k-6) across the United States in support of programs that help provide students with increased access to and consumption of fresh, healthy foods made available through an on-campus vegetable consumption program.
The program will award ten grants of $15,000 each. Each grant award will support an elementary school in developing a program offering fresh vegetables and fruits lasting through the 2009-10 school year.
Grant awards will be based on proposals that demonstrate need, sustainability, innovation, and potential for community involvement. Funding must be spent on any of the following: fresh produce (vegetables and fruits); a vegetable station (such as a dedicated salad bar); kitchen equipment (primary usage must relate to the proposed program); program staffing (cafeteria personnel, lunch-room staff, etc.); nutrition education supplies; or food safety training.
Visit the program’s Web site for complete guidelines and an application form.
