W.K. Kellogg Foundation grants $32.5 million to improve access to fresh food and physical activity for children

BATTLE CREEK, Mich. – The W.K. Kellogg Foundation announced today it will invest $32,450,000 over three years in community-driven efforts and national projects that are working to increase access to healthy food and physical activity for vulnerable children and their families.

This investment—called Food & Community—brings the Kellogg Foundation’s total support for healthy food and farming projects since the mid-1990s to more than $230 million.

Nine communities that were part of the Kellogg Foundation’s Food & Fitness Initiative, which began in 2007, are receiving initial funding from Food & Community. The following communities have spent more than two years planning and piloting local approaches to create healthier communities: Boston; Detroit; Holyoke, Mass.; New York City; Northeast Iowa; Oakland, Calif.; Philadelphia; Seattle/King County, Wash. and Tohono O’odham Nation, Ariz. Each of the nine sites will receive $400,000 per year for three years for a total of $10.8 million.
