Whole Kids Foundation: School Garden Grants

Deadline: October 31, 2015

The Whole Kids Foundation support schools and inspires families to improve children’s nutrition and wellness. The Foundation’s goals are to:

  • Help kids learn to love fresh, nutritious, whole foods
  • Increase access to and consumption of these foods in schools
  • Inspire families to prepare and share these foods at home
  • Encourage community action that supports healthier kids
  • Create support tools for educators, who play a vital role in modeling and teaching healthy choices
  • End the childhood obesity epidemic

The School Garden Grants program provides grants to a K-12 school, or a nonprofit working in partnership with a K-12 school to support a new or existing edible garden on school grounds.

Amount: Up to $2,000.

Eligibility: Nonprofit K-12 schools (public, private, or charter) or 501(c)(3) nonprofits working in partnership with a K-12 school. Previous recipients are not eligible. Applicants must have the participation and support of a partner organization from the community. Priority will be given to both limited-resource communities and to projects that demonstrate strong buy-in from stakeholders, as well as the financial sustainability of the project.
