Project Produce Fruit and Veggie Grants for SchoolsDue Date: N/A
The Chef Ann Foundation has teamed up with Skoop, a superfoods company committed to bringing the health benefits of superfoods to every American. Together we have launched Project Produce: Fruit and Veggie Grants for Schools. These $2,500 grants assist schools in expanding students' palates, and encouraging increased consumption of and exposure to fresh produce through engagement in lunchroom education activities that encourage students to taste new vegetables and fruits offered either in a dish, cooked, or raw. The goal of Project Produce is to provide funds to support the food cost of these activities which are designed to touch every child. Offering these events to all kids whether they bring or buy lunch requires additional funds. Project Produce grants can help you fill that gap. Any district or independent school participating in the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) is eligible to apply. There is no deadline for this grant program; grants will be determined on an ongoing basis depending on available funding.
