$2,500 Fruit and Veggie Grants for schools!
Application open now - There is no deadline. Grants will be determined on an ongoing basis depending on available funding.
Launched in 2014 by Chef Ann Foundation and superfoods company Healthy Skoop, Project Produce helps schools increase kids’ access to fresh fruits and vegetables and provides nutrition education through fun lunchroom learning activities. The grant program is designed to help create experiential nutrition education when and where students make their food choices: in the cafeteria. The $2,500 one-year grants support food costs to incorporate fruit and vegetable tastings into the school’s nutrition program. The goals of Project Produce are to expand students’ palates and to increase their consumption of fresh produce.
