Inviting area preschools to apply for a 2017 Nutrition Grant

Once again Green Tree Pediatrics invites area preschools to apply for grants for the 2017-2018 school year. The grants (up to $200) help implement activities to increase children’s exposure to fresh fruits and vegetables. Possible grants might include funding to cover the cost of starting a vegetable garden, incorporating fresh fruits and vegetables into daily meals or sending a teacher to a workshop. If you are interested in applying, please send an email to describing the project for which you are requesting funding and the amount you are requesting. Please also include a letter of support from a parent with a child that goes to Green Tree Pediatrics.

Applications are due by July 15, and grants will be awarded by August 15, 2017.

This program is part of our ongoing commitment to help families develop the tools for lifelong health, including nutrition and fitness.
