The makers of Hidden Valley Salad Dressings are now accepting applications for the 2009-10 Love Your Veggies grant program. The purpose of the program is to help schools execute innovative programs that will increase the access to, and consumption of, fresh fruits and vegetables in the lunchroom.
Ten $10,000 grants will be awarded to elementary schools across the US to support the development of a vegetable program offering fresh produce to be implemented as early as April 2010 and lasting through the 2010-2011 school year.
Deadline: November 6, 2009
