In 2011, the Consumer Wellness Center awarded grants to the best-qualified schoolteachers or program administrators who are working directly with groups of school children or expectant mothers.

The 2011 recipients are:

  1. Project COLORs
    For the second year in a row, Project Colors, a grassroots humanitarian aid program in South Africa, is the recipient of a CWC grant. The group will use this $2,000 grant to further expand its Tiny Tummies program, which includes feeding at least 100 poor children per week in tuberculosis-ridden areas food that is rich in vitamins and minerals, as well as teaching them about nutrition and proper sanitation
  2. The Corvallis Environmental Center
    The Corvallis Environmental Center (CEC) in Oregon is also a third-time grant recipient, having used its previous awards to fund its "Farm to School Program," which brings local produce samples into schools for tastings, and teaches students about food and nutrition. CEC will use this year's grant to continue the program, as well as offer farm field trips and after-school cooking clubs to younger students
  3. Neshaminy School District
    For the third year in a row, Pennsylvania's Neshaminy School District has been awarded a CWC grant. After successfully expanding its nutrition education curriculum with previous award funds, the district plans to use this year's $2,000 grant to produce school-wide commercials about nutrition, invite popular speakers to teach children about nutrition, take field trips to local farms and fresh food markets, and purchase a plant-growing lamp for the classroom herb garden.
