Whole Kids Foundation invites applications for K-12 Garden Grant program

The Whole Kids Foundation is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) founded by Whole Foods Market and guided by the same values, principles, expertise, and standards for quality ingredients, food production methods, and nutrition.

To that end, the foundation invites applications for its Garden Grant Program, which is driven by the idea that kids who grow veggies are more likely to eat veggies. Schools and nonprofit organizations will be awarded grants of $3,000 to turn outdoor spaces into hands-on learning gardens that connect kids with food, spark their curiosity, and support classroom curricula. The program supports both new and existing edible educational gardens.

The foundation will be hosting an informational webinar about the opportunity on Wednesday, February 23, 2022, at 3:00 p.m. ET and March 7, 2022, at 3:00 p.m. ET.

Applicants must be a charter or public school including tribally controlled and Bureau of Indian Education schools, nonprofit private school, or a nonprofit organization or tribal entity that serves children in the K-12 age range.

The application window opens on February 14, 2022, and closes March 1, 2022.

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

Deadline: March 11, 2022
