Fresh Network Schools

Over 250 elementary schools and parent-teacher organizations in the greater Portland metro area were invited to apply for the Fresh Network Grant Program. Winning schools receive free copies of our family health magazine for parents, elementary FRESH, throughout the school year to send home in students’ backpacks. Schools also receive a grant for a health or wellness related project.
