The Whole Kids Foundation and FoodCorps have collaborated to develop the School Garden Grant Program that supports school garden. The idea is to help students learn about nutrition, health, conservation and food systems, and strengthen partnerships between schools and their communities. 

To apply, you must be a K-12 school or a non-profit organization (public, private, or charter school) 501(c)(3) organization. You must be engaging children with fresh fruits and vegetables by developing or maintaining a garden on school grounds. Garden projects may be at any stage of development (planning, construction, or operation). Grants will provide $2,000 for projects lasting a year.
