Love Your Veggies Nutrition Grant Program

Posted by on August 31, 2009

Elementary Schools Invited to Apply for Love Your Veggies Nutrition Grant Program
Deadline: November 7, 2009

The makers of Hidden Valley Salad Dressings created the Love Your Veggies campaign and grant program as a way to help parents and educators get children eating and enjoying their vegetables.

The Love Your Veggies grant program will award grants of $10,000 each to ten elementary schools across the United States. Grant awards will be based on proposals that demonstrate need, sustainability, innovation, and potential for community involvement. Funding can be spent on fresh produce (vegetables and fruits), a vegetable station (such as a dedicated salad bar), kitchen equipment (primary usage must relate to proposed program), program staffing (cafeteria personnel, lunchroom staff, etc.) nutrition education supplies, and food safety training.

In addition to the ten grants, the program will also award a $10,000 grant to an elementary school through a Twitter contest to run September 14-26, 2009.
