POSITIVE SPROUTS® Program Amway is giving away $30,000 in Sustainability Grants to ten Boys & Girls Clubs who previously received community gardens from Amway. The funds given are to maintain the community gardens and to improve nutrition for Club members.
Amway is also donating 150 Garden In A Box Kits to Boys & Girls Clubs who demonstrate a want and need to establish a community gardening program! The kits include a variety of fruit, seeds and supplies needed to get the garden started and to start growing nutritious foods. In addition, Amway is providing POSITIVE SPROUTS® Curriculum for 4,000 Boys & Girls Clubs nationwide, which makes sure they have access to educational materials promoting healthy eating habits!
These are such great ways to help promote nutrition. What better way to learn than by planting your own community garden and eating the foods you have worked hard to grow. My kids and I plant a garden every spring and it's so rewarding when we finally get to eat the fruits and veggies. With Boys & Girls Clubs and Amway, many communities and children will not only learn about nutrition in a positive way, but also gain great experience!

I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Boys and Girls Clubs of America and Amway. I received a promotional item as a thank-you for participating.
