With 31 million children eating school meals every day in the U.S. and millions more in the U.K. and Canada, healthy school food has the power to improve kids’ eating habits and health, and ultimately, change their lives. However, many school meals rely on processed foods instead of fresh fruits and vegetables. We need to change the way we feed our kids.
Is your school beginning its journey? We can help. Our primary programs like salad bar and school gardens grants and healthy teacher trainings expand access to healthy food choices, connect kids to the root of their food and empower educators. These opportunities are the first steps towards meaningful school food transformations, which will grow a healthier generation.
Kids who grow veggies, eat veggies, so school gardens can make a big difference. Through our Garden Grant program, schools and non-profit organizations turn outdoor spaces into powerful hands-on learning gardens that connect kids with food, spark their curiosity and support classroom curriculum.
Give kids good choices, and they’ll make good choices! Through key partnerships, we developed the Salad Bars to Schools grant program with the mission of donating salad bars to U.S. schools to allow kids to have daily access to fresh fruits and vegetables.
The Bee Grant program allows for schools and non-profit organizations to receive support for educational honey beehives, so students can observe bees up close and learn about the vital role these pollinators play in our food system.
We are fueling change in Canadian schools by getting healthy, local, sustainable food on the plates and minds of students. These comprehensive grants bring the local harvest to schools by providing school gardens, nutrition education, advocacy training and salad bars.
The Get School Cooking Grant was created to support medium-sized school districts who are eager to transform their school lunch programs from processed foods to scratch-cooked meals.
Our team at Whole Kids Foundation is supporting kids to become entrepreneurs because the skills needed as a successful young business leader will benefit them for a lifetime. From critical thinking to goal setting, entrepreneurship skills are life skills.
