- 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 each.
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.
