Woolworths Community Grants
7 April 2010 at 4:49 pm
Supermarket giants, Woolworths and Safeway are encouraging community groups around Australia to apply for a
Fresh Food Kids Community Grant of up to $5,000.
As part of its campaign to promote a healthy lifestyle for school-aged children, Woolworths and Safeway are looking for fresh ideas across food and nutrition, exercise and physical activity.
Last year more than 1,900 community groups were successful in receiving a Fresh Food Kids Community Grant.
Marty Hamnett, General Manager Supermarket Operations for Woolworths says the community grants program has been an outstanding success, with so many communities already developing innovative ideas and activities that promote a healthy lifestyle for children.
Hamnett says the purpose of the program is to send a positive and practical message about fresh food to children and their parents.
Applications open on April 5th and close on May 2nd.
