Consumer Wellness Center
(NaturalNews) The Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting nutrition as a way to prevent disease and enhance human health and longevity, is pleased to announce the recipients of this year's 2012 Nutritional Education Grant Program.

Each year, CWC chooses recipients from among the best and brightest in the fields of medicine, education, community service, and local outreach. These are folks that are making a big difference in their local communities by educating the public, especially pregnant mothers and young children, about the importance of good nutrition.

Having doubled the individual award amount for this year's recipients from $1,000 to $2,000, CWC is excited to see how the recipients will use these extra funds to expand their nutrition education programs. Their programs are truly inspiring and, with the help of these added funds, are sure to have an even larger impact in the years to come.

"This is the fourth year that CWC has been able to support the efforts of individuals and organizations around the world that are promoting better health through nutrition," said Mike Adams, editor-in-chief of NaturalNews.com, and Executive Director of CWC. "I'm excited to be a part of this important work, and I look forward to seeing how these grants will shape the face of nutrition education in the future."

For the second year in a row, Project Colors, a grassroots humanitarian aid program in South Africa, is the recipient of a CWC grant. The group will use this $2,000 grant to further expand its Tiny Tummies program, which includes feeding at least 100 poor children per week in tuberculosis-ridden areas food that is rich in vitamins and minerals, as well as teaching them about nutrition and proper sanitation (http://www.projectcolors.com/).

For the third year in a row, Pennsylvania's Neshaminy School District has been awarded a CWC grant. After successfully expanding its nutrition education curriculum with previous award funds, the district plans to use this year's $2,000 grant to produce school-wide commercials about nutrition, invite popular speakers to teach children about nutrition, take field trips to local farms and fresh food markets, and purchase a plant-growing lamp for the classroom herb garden (http://neshaminy.k12.pa.us/).

The Corvallis Environmental Center (CEC) in Oregon is also a third-time grant recipient, having used its previous awards to fund its "Farm to School Program," which brings local produce samples into schools for tastings, and teaches students about food and nutrition. CEC will use this year's grant to continue the program, as well as offer farm field trips and after-school cooking clubs to younger students (http://corvallisenvironmental.wordpress.com/)
