Grants for Teaching Children about Health

 The blog Obama Foodorama which blogs on Everything about White House Food Initiatives from Policy to Pie reports on The Chefs Move to Schools program:
The Chefs Move to Schools program, run through the U.S. Department of Agriculture, will help chefs partner with interested schools in their communities so together they can create healthy meals that meet the schools’ dietary guidelines and budgets, while teaching young people about nutrition and making balanced and healthy choices.
The Culinary Trust is granting funds for culinary professionals to help our children eat right by teaching them about food, nutrition and cooking. You can apply for a $200 to $3000 grant. ObFo reports; 
Children touching, tasting, and enjoying whole foods. 
"Culinary professionals may seek funding for any program that promotes health and wellness in schools. For example, the grant may be used to plant a garden, teach a class, promote or create a wellness program for students or parents or assist in creating a school curriculum that focuses on healthy eating."
