Healthy Kids Community Challenge

Leaders of Change

The Leaders of Change project is being undertaken as a part of the Choose to Boost Veggies and Fruit theme. The goal of this project is to encourage community partners to make policy and/or program changes that promote and facilitate vegetable and fruit consumption in Hastings and Prince Edward counties.

Who is eligible to apply?

If you are a not-for-profit organization or an organization that receives public funding, serves kids and their families and are interested in committing to make program/policy changes to increase vegetable and fruit consumption, we hope that you will apply to be a Leader of Change in our community. If you are a successful applicant you could receive a Tower Garden with supplies or a Catered Taste Testing event for your organization!

Applications are also open for local grocery stores that are committed to make a healthy change in their store. To promote vegetable and fruit consumption for kids we want to work with interested grocery stores to create a healthy checkout aisle and/or promote healthy snacks for kids while they are shopping with their families. If you are a successful applicant you could receive up to $1500 worth of promotional items to support your healthy change initiative.
