Champions for Healthy Kids
General Mills Canada launched the Champions For Healthy Kids Grant Program in 2006. The goal of the General Mills Champions for Healthy Kids grants program is to encourage communities across Canada to improve the eating and physical activity patterns of young people ages 2 - 20.
Funding priorities for the Champions Grant program will be registered charitable organizations that work in the areas of youth fitness and nutrition.
Twenty-five grants of up to $5000.00 will be awarded across Canada each year.
