(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, announces its third annual Nutritional Education Grant Program. In order to help further the cause of improved health through good nutrition, the program is offering ten $1,000 grant awards this year to people and organizations dedicated to making a positive impact on nutrition and health in their local communities and schools.

"We are thrilled to be able to offer a new round of grants this year to fund truly beneficial programs that are improving health and quality of life around the world," said Mike Adams, editor-in-chief of NaturalNews.com and executive director of the CWC.

The program's award funds are used to support cooking classes, taste-testing events for children, community gardens and other local outreach programs, all with the intent of increasing awareness about the importance of good nutrition and teaching people how to eat well for good health.

"We spend nearly 100 percent of our received donations on programs, and no money whatsoever is spent on salaries," Adams added, noting that some non-profits spend as little as five percent of their donations on their causes.

Highlights from last year's nutrition grant awards

For the second year in a row, CWC awarded Dr. Sanjeev Rastogi, M.D., from The Body and Mind Clinic and Research Center at Vatsala Hospital in Tulsi Das marg Lucknow, India, with a $1,000 grant. Dr. Rastogi and his team successfully used their 2008 grant to train 50 low-income, expectant mothers in proper nutrition. And in 2009, the Center built upon its previous successes by using its grant money to expand the education program into other rural communities around India.

The Corvallis Environmental Center (CEC) in Corvallis, Ore., also received a second grant award from CWC in 2009 for its highly successful Farm to School program that teaches children about the importance of eating locally-grown produce as part of a healthy diet.

The Center used its 2008 award to expand a pilot program that let school children taste-test various local produce, launching the program into all eight schools in the Corvallis School District. The Center used its 2009 grant money to purchase the food and supplies it needs to keep the program going strong.

Neshaminy School District in Neshaminy, Penn., used its 2009 grant money to launch an elective class in nutrition designed to teach students how to improve their health by incorporating nutritionally-rich foods into their diets. The class combines nutrition education and food science theory to teach students practical, hands-on ways to prepare healthy, fresh meals, as well as how best to prepare them in order to obtain maximum nutritional benefit. More than 125 students enrolled last year in the class, thanks to the grant money.
