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 help advance its mission, the foundation is inviting applications for its Garden Grant Program. Driven by the idea that kids who grow veggies are more likely to eat veggies, schools and non-profit 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 about gardening and fresh food, and support classroom curriculum. The program supports both new and existing educational gardens.
To be eligible, applicants must be a charter or public school (including tribally controlled and Bureau of Indian Education schools), a nonprofit private school, or a nonprofit organization or tribal entity that serves children in grades K-12.
The foundation will be hosting an informational webinar about the opportunity on March 3 at 3:00 p.m. EST.
See the Whole Kids Foundation website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.
