Congratulations to the 2013 Jamba Juice "It's All About the Fruit and Veggies" Garden Grant Winners!

 

Raise a smoothie to NGA’s 40th Anniversary! Jamba Juice is celebrating 40 years growing gardens with 40 grants for youth and school programs across the United States. Since 2010, Jamba Juice will have provided over 100 school and community gardens with grants to start and support health and nutrition education. The “All About the Fruits and Veggies” grant program provides youth garden initiatives with $500 in gardening supplies, curriculum, soil amendments and plants to help create engaging nutrition and gardening experiences. Observing and exploring fruit and vegetable production gives a deeper understanding and appreciation for these essential foods in our diet. Recipients will be selected based on plans to promote nutrition education, ideas for incorporating fruit and vegetable activities into the curriculum, and ability to sustain the program over multiple years. View pictures from the Department of Labor reporting on the 2012 Jamba Juice Earth Day Event held in Washington D.C.  Learn more from reports from the National Restaurant Association.  Want to learn more about fruit and veggies in your own classroom?
