Whole Kids Foundation invites applications for beehives and bee programming

The Whole Kids Foundation, a nonprofit 501(c)(3) founded by Whole Foods Market, is dedicated to helping kids eat better and works to support schools and inspire families to improve children’s nutrition and wellness.

In partnership with the Bee Cause Project, the foundation invites applications for its Bee Grants program. The program provides educational beehives and bee programming support to schools and nonprofit organizations so students can observe bees up close and learn about the vital role these pollinators play in our food system. Recipients can apply for a choice of a monetary or equipment grant intended to support schools in bringing live bees to their campus or grow their already existing educational hive program. Recipients will receive grants options of a $1,500 monetary grant, an equipment grant: for an indoor observation hive, or an equipment grant: for a traditional Langstroth hive.

The foundation will host webinars to discuss the grant opportunity on September 14, 2022, and September 29, 2022.

Eligible applicants include K-12 schools or nonprofit organizations serving grades K-12 in the U.S. and Canada.

For complete program guidelines, application instructions, and to register for the application webinars, see the Whole Kids Foundation website.

Deadline: October 15, 2022
