Grants, provided courtesy of the Walmart Foundation, are expected to range from $25,000 to $35,000. Grant money will increase the number of healthy meals low-income children receive, provide nutrition literacy to the children and their families, help implement nutrition standards that increase access to healthier foods, and promote meal and program efficiencies to decrease food waste.
All local park and recreation agencies are eligible to apply. Grant applications must be submitted by March 7, 2016.
