Our Garden Grant Program is Growing with 500 New Grants

We’re excited to announce that 500 new Whole Kids Foundation Garden Grants — each worth $3,000 — will be awarded to schools and nonprofit organizations starting or expanding their edible learning spaces. This $1.5 million investment will support more than 250,000 students by providing garden grants in 49 U.S. states, Washington D.C., Puerto Rico, ten Canadian provinces, and one Canadian territory!

From edible education grants to being a catalyst for school food transformation, we support schools and inspire families to improve children’s nutrition and wellness. Given the right opportunities, kids will get excited about fresh fruits, vegetables, whole grains and other nutritious whole foods.

Get to Know Our Partners

New Recipe: Baked Veggie Nuggets

We’ve reinvented a childhood classic with plant protein thanks to two nutritional powerhouses — carrots and chickpeas — while still capturing flavor, nostalgia and fun.

Carrots are rich in Vitamin A, and chickpeas (also known as garbanzo beans) deliver protein, fiber, and many minerals, including manganese, folate, and copper. Plus, these nuggets are baked instead of fried, so they contain much less oil. So, dig in and start dipping!

Tips for Families & Parents

We have partnered with our friends at PBS KIDS to bring relevant content to help support parents and educate and entertain kids.

School is back in session! Ease the transition with checklists to get back into the daily school routines. Stay energized with fun lunch box ideas or after-school snacks and downtime activities.

Brands That Give Back

Through the generous donations from our supplier partners, we're able to invest 100% of funding in programs supporting schools to help improve children's nutrition. We invite you to shop these brands helping us grow the next generation of healthy eaters.

Since 2011, we have provided over 10 million kids with opportunities to connect with nature and food through our grants and programs.
