The Whole Kids Foundation (WKF), a non-profit created by Whole Foods Market to support schools and improve children’s nutritional wellbeing, is accepting grant applications from eligible schools and non-profits.
The School Garden Grant Program, WKF’s first major grant initiative, is designed to help schools grow students’ relationship with and understanding of food through the practice of gardening.
The initiative will provide a grant of $2,000 to one thousand schools around the country, along with curriculum resources and mentoring.
To qualify, applicants must be a non-profit K-12 school or school district, or a 501(c)(3) non-profit working in partnership with at least one K-12 school. In addition, the related school(s) must be currently maintaining or in the development stage of a school garden program.
