COMMUNITY FUND GRANT

Focusing on Nutrition

Our goal is simple - we wish to help you provide higher quality nutrition for your students. We know how hard it can be to make nutritious food choices on a budget. Our hope is that our School Nutrition Grant can give you the freedom to deliver a variety of delicious and nutritious meals.

The PC Children’s Charity Community Fund grants up to $5,000 for local, not-for-profit organizations to provide higher quality nutrition for children and youth and empower them to be their own good food champion. Community Fund Grants can be used to purchase food, consumable supplies needed to serve and eat food, nutrition educational materials, and food focused field trips


DUE TO OVERWHELMING DEMAND, GRANT APPLICATIONS ARE CLOSED FOR THE REMAINDER OF 2018. WE LOOK FORWARD TO PARTNERING WITH YOU IN 2019!
