Grants for veggies: Has a food pantry, community garden, school lunch program or other local nonprofit inspired you and your family to eat more vegetables? The frozen food giant Birds Eye is offering $20,000 in grants through its “Share the Wonder” program.
To enter, go to the company’s Facebook page, “like” them, and enter a brief proposal of 300 characters or less about the community organization. The deadline for entering is this Friday. Entries will be judged for story, originality, nutrition focus and passion for vegetables and five finalists will be selected nationally.
From Sept. 12 through Oct. 7, finalists’ entries will be featured and voted on to win grants ranging from $5,000 to $20,000. Winners will be announced Oct. 17.
