Whole Kids Foundation, School Garden Grant Program: Deadline December 31, 2011
The Whole Kids Foundation was created by Whole Foods Market to support the School Garden Grant Program. The grant program will be funded by a six-week, in-store donation drive at all Whole Foods Market stores and online at the Whole Kids Foundation Website until September 30th. To date, the fund has raised over 1.6 million dollars! The program will provide grants of $2,000, along with curriculum resources and mentorship, to one thousand schools to launch or expand school garden projects. Applicants must be developing or currently maintaining a school garden project that will help children engage with fresh fruits or vegetables. There is a limit of one garden grant per school.
