The mission of the Whole Kids Foundation is to improve children’s nutrition and wellness with the goal of ending the childhood obesity epidemic. The Foundation’s School Garden Grants are provided to K-12 schools and nonprofit organizations in the U.S. and Canada that are developing or currently maintaining a school garden project that will help children engage with fresh fruits and vegetables. Grants of $2,000 are provided for garden projects at any stage of development – planning, construction, or operation. Visit the Foundation’s website to complete the online application.
