For the past 13 years, the General Mills Foundation has provided $7.5 million in Champions for Healthy Kids grants to 650 nonprofit organizations across the U.S. to support grassroots projects promoting healthy eating and active lifestyles for children and their families.
The availability of all Academy Foundation grants is based on annual funding, and beginning in 2016, the General Mills Foundation and the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Foundation are exploring other ways to collaborate.
We look forward to sharing more information as it becomes available, and we again wish to say Thank you, General Mills Foundation, for 13 years of supporting Champions grants!
