Whole Kids Foundation Supports School Gardens

Trailside Elementary School Garden will benefit from grant award.

Whole Kids Foundation, founded by Whole Foods Market, supports schools and inspires families to improve children’s nutrition and wellness. They believe that given the right opportunities, kids will get excited about fresh fruits, vegetables, whole grains and other nutritious whole food. Recently, Whole Kids Foundation awarded over 600 grants for school gardens, including one for Trailside Elementary School. EATS agrees with their philosophy: “At Whole Kids Foundation we know that the more kids know and feel connected to their food, the more curious they become about how things grow or taste, and the more willing they are to try new foods. This is why we believe in edible garden learning spaces!” Thank you Whole Kids Foundation for supporting us and school gardens across the country!
