The General Mills Foundation, in partnership with the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Foundation and the President's Council on Physical Fitness and Sports, is inviting nonprofit organizations in the United States working to improve youth nutrition and physical fitness behaviors to apply for the Champions for Healthy Kids program.
The program will award fifty grants of $10,000 to community-based groups such as health departments, government agencies, schools, and Native American Tribes that develop creative ways to help youth adopt a balanced diet and physically active lifestyle.
To ensure that the nutrition information in the proposed program is accurate and is scientifically based, a registered dietitian must either be directly involved or serve as an advisor to the program.
Project periods will vary depending on program and setting (such as school year or summer program). However, the project should be completed within twelve months . One-day/one-time events will not be funded.
Date due: December 3, 2012
