Apply for grants to fund a healthy snacking initiative on your school campus.
Students, food service directors, PE teachers – anyone connected to the school – are encouraged to submit their healthy snacking idea by completing a short form found on the www.apples4ed.com site before November 30, 2017. All initiatives requesting grant funding must fall into one of three categories: hands-on-learning, event or food service. With few program parameters, creative ideas could range from a new school garden to a fitness competition and anything in between.
Schools with students enrolled from Kindergarten and/or up through 12th grade will be eligible and considered for the grant. A judging panel of representatives from USApple, SNA and NASDA will determine finalists based upon a combination of creativity, student impact, long-term viability and community involvement.
First place will be awarded a $10,000 grant and two runner-ups will each receive $5,000. Checks will be presented to the schools in person, in January and February of 2018.
