Consumer Wellness Center announces Holly Moran Nutrition Education Grant Program; applications now open for 2014

Consumer Wellness Center

(NaturalNews) As the executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center, I'm thrilled to bring you this announcement today:

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 seventh annual Nutrition Education Grant Program. This year it is named the Holly Moran Grant in honor of one of its cherished original members, Holly Moran, whose life was dedicated to helping families experience health abundance through the miracles of nutrition and small-scale gardening.

Starting today, the CWC continues Holly's mission by offering twelve $1,000 grant awards to people and organizations dedicated to making a positive impact on nutrition and health in their local communities and schools. Applications are now open! See application instructions below for qualifications and other details.

This program grants awards to support educational classes, 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 "nutritional self-reliance."

"This program empowers children and expectant mothers with lifelong wisdom about food and nutrition," explained Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, executive director of the CWC. "With the help of educators who share our passion for nutrition, we are able to place small donations in the hands of people with big hearts, making a huge impact on the quality of life of women and children for generations to come."

CWC spends 100 percent of received donations on these programs. No money whatsoever is spent by the non-profit on salaries. Click here to make a donation to the CWC and help support our ongoing nutrition grant programs.

Apply for a 2014 grant by November 25, 2014

The CWC is thrilled to consider the amazing achievements of committed program participants from years past, and we're looking forward to seeing all the new ideas and inspirations from this year's grant proposals.

The deadline to apply is November 25, 2014 and all grant recipients will be announced on or around December 15, 2014.

Instructions for applying for a CWC grant

The Consumer Wellness Center is awarding twelve $1,000 grants to:

• Schoolteachers or program administrators
• Who are working with groups of school children or expectant mothers

A qualifying grant could be from a public elementary school, for example, or even a private learning institution with special classes on nutrition for expectant mothers.

To apply for a $1,000 grant, please submit an email to [email protected] with the following information:

• The name of your organization, your position and qualifications.

• What you intend to do with the grant funds (be specific).

• Your target group: How many people will be impacted, where they are geographically located, and how old they are.

• Outline the goals you hope to accomplish with the grant.

• Confirm your commitment to proactively report your program results to the Consumer Wellness Center with both a written overview and photographs of the activities or results.

For instance, if you are a teacher and you observe your class of 3rd graders eating lunches devoid of fresh veggies and fruits, you might arrange a field trip to an organic farm where your students will have the opportunity to experience how foods are grown, picked, and made available for purchase.

If you administer a prenatal care clinic or educate expectant mothers, you might teach the how's and why's of holistic food preparation. You might even demonstrate what whole foods are and how to prepare nutrient dense and delicious meals.

If you are a science teacher in a public school, you might use the grant funds to purchase hydroponic grow systems and demonstrate to the students the miracle of growing food from seeds. Topics for exploration include nutrient uptake, photosynthesis, plant reproduction and flowering, and so on.

Help share your story of success via nutrition education

In return for these grants, we only ask that you document your educational program so that it may published on NaturalNews.com and ConsumerWellness.org.

We ask that you proactively communicate with the Consumer Wellness Center, sharing details of your program via photographs (or video) and a written summary report.

If you work with children, we encourage those children to write about their experiences, create artwork or poetry about what they have learned and email it to us. If funds are granted to prenatal care centers or programs, for those who are willing to share their stories, we would love to publish their photographs along with testimonials of personal empowerment through nutrition education. (Informed food choice during pregnancy produces healthy babies!)

The Consumer Wellness Center is invested in our collective future, and we aim to make that future a more positive, healthful place through the sharing of food wisdom and nutritional knowledge.

About the author:Mike Adams (aka the "Health Ranger") is a best selling author (#1 best selling science book on Amazon.com) and a globally recognized scientific researcher in clean foods. He serves as the founding editor of NaturalNews.com and the lab science director of an internationally accredited (ISO 17025) analytical laboratory known as CWC Labs. There, he was awarded a Certificate of Excellence for achieving extremely high accuracy in the analysis of toxic elements in unknown water samples using ICP-MS instrumentation. Adams is also highly proficient in running liquid chromatography, ion chromatography and mass spectrometry time-of-flight analytical instrumentation.

Adams is a person of color whose ancestors include Africans and Native American Indians. He's also of Native American heritage, which he credits as inspiring his "Health Ranger" passion for protecting life and nature against the destruction caused by chemicals, heavy metals and other forms of pollution.

Adams is the founder and publisher of the open source science journal Natural Science Journal, the author of numerous peer-reviewed science papers published by the journal, and the author of the world's first book that published ICP-MS heavy metals analysis results for foods, dietary supplements, pet food, spices and fast food. The book is entitled Food Forensics and is published by BenBella Books.

In his laboratory research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products.

In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition. Through the non-profit CWC, Adams also launched Nutrition Rescue, a program that donates essential vitamins to people in need. Click here to see some of the CWC success stories.

He has also exposed "strange fibers" found in Chicken McNuggets, fake academic credentials of so-called health "gurus," dangerous "detox" products imported as battery acid and sold for oral consumption, fake acai berry scams, the California raw milk raids, the vaccine research fraud revealed by industry whistleblowers and many other topics.
