Since 2008, through Annie’s Grants for Gardens program, Annie’s has donated funds to over 270 schools. This means Annie’s has put more than 80,000 children in direct contact with growing real food. If you’ve ever seen a child picking fresh vegetables in a garden, you’ll know the pure joy that being in touch with real food brings. And with a school garden, every child in every class can experience firsthand how real food grows, how delicious it tastes and how many flavors there are to explore.
The Annie’s team is really proud of what we’ve done so far, but we know we’ve only just gotten started. There are still millions of children who don’t have access to a garden.
We want to change that, but we can’t do it alone; we need your help. We’re inviting everyone who cares about connecting children with real food to join us in our healthy mission.
