Woolworths Community Grants
Wednesday, 7th 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.

The online application form, as well as further information regarding the grant program, can be found at www.woolworths.com.au

    I am a Women’s Wellbeing officer at the Western Suburbs Indigenous Gathering Place. I came across the Woolworths Community grants on google and I just wanted to double check if it’s suitable for our organisation to apply for the grant before submitting it.

    Some clients that we deal with are parents that are dis advantiged finacialy and need assistance with their grocery shopping at Woolworths market for thier kids and family.

    I have dealt with the young youth that fall under this situation and I want to know if this grant can help or organisation with this grant to provide our clients with support for thier family?

    Many Thanks

    We are a local tennis club who needs to upgrade our lighting to ensure the continuation and advancement of our juniors. Is this something you would consider helping to fund

  • Pearl Sandy says:

    Do you help with donations to a Aboriginal Womens Softball team who would like to participate in a carnival at Redcliffe 2016 QLD.

  • A Geelong school says:

    Hi, I run a program at a Geelong school targeting students that are a retention risk. This full day program runs multiple groups each weed and breakfast and lunch is required for the students. Is this something Woolworths can help with? A gift card would be perfect.
