The purpose of this project was to locate a potential funding source and write a grant to fund a community garden and nutritional program for the Boys & Girls Club of the Foothills in Monrovia, California. This program will provide gardening, nutrition, and cooking classes for at-risk youth who are from low income or ethnic minority neighborhoods. The program will also include community engagement projects in which program participants engage their community regarding healthy and food security issues. The proposed program is expected to have positive health and educational outcomes for at-risk youth, as well as raise awareness of food security issues in the community.
A search for potential funders was done using the Internet. The Opal ® apple Youth Make a Difference Initiative was identified as the best fit for the program. Actual submission of this grant was not requirement for successful completion of this project.
