Would you like to use food in your classroom to inspire your students to be healthier eaters? Enhance your teaching—apply for a mini food grant!

Every year, BC Dairy Association awards teachers with mini food grants to purchase food for enhancing nutrition education efforts in the classroom. It’s wonderful to see how teachers find simple, yet creative, ways to inspire students to develop healthier eating habits. Despite teachers using readily available and common foods, many students are trying these foods for the first time in the classroom! In September 2015, we gave away 120 mini food grants to teachers in BC.

Answers to the top 10 frequently asked questions about the grants can be found here. The deadline to apply for the second round of grants is January 27th, 2016. Contact us for further details at nutrition@bcdairy.ca.
