The Champions for Healthy Kids grants program is a partnership among the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Foundation, the General Mills Foundation and the President's Challenge. Since 2002, more than $4 million have been provided for innovative youth nutrition and fitness programs.
Through this grants program, the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Foundation helps extend the work of RDs and DTRs. The grassroots grants provide an opportunity for an RD or DTR to work with a non-profit organization and apply for funding.
Each year the Champions program will award 50 grants of $10,000 each. The 2014 deadline is March 14, 2014 at 11:59 pm (Central). More information and access to the online application will be available in February at the General Mills Champions for Healthy Kids website.
