Canadian schools, universities and training centres can now decide to offer healthy snacks and drinks to their students and, at the same time, tap into a much-needed source of grant funding which will go directly to the schools for use in their activities and programs. Grants of $500 to $10,000 will be offered to each school depending on the number of healthy vending machines they are hosting.
Canadian Healthy Vending, Canada’s largest healthy vending machine provider, announced its Healthy Snacks In Schools Initiative today. Grants of up to $10,000 will be paid to each Canadian school, university, college or training centre that participates in the program by hosting a vending machine that contains both nutritious snacks and healthy cold drinks.
Grants will be presented upon installation of each Max! Healthy Vending machine in the amount of $500 per machine, with a maximum total grant of $10,000 per school for 20 machine installations.
The company is now accepting requests from schools in all regions of Canada and has set aside an initial 200 Max! Machines for the program launch and expects to quickly place this batch of machines into schools—and disburse $100,000 in grants—during the first weeks of 2013.
