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:
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
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
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.
