The Community Innovation Grants Program allows the United Fresh Start Foundation to collaborate with like-minded stakeholders to increase children’s access, selection, and consumption of fresh produce while they are outside of school. The 2020 program is focused on supporting visionary initiatives and research that not only increases children and families’ access to fresh produce, but also broadens selection and consumption of fresh fruits and vegetables, whether at home, on weekends, during the summer, while out to eat, or any other time outside the traditional school day. A total of $50,000 in funds will be awarded this year, to a minimum of five projects. Eligible applicants include not-for-profit organizations, schools, universities, small businesses, and others.
Applications must be received by December 1, 2019.
