Any Michigan K-12 school can apply for the AFHK Game On grants to support a school garden or Farm to School project. Grants average $1,000. Applications are now open through April 7, please feel free to share this excellent opportunity with your partners:


Action for Healthy Kids: Every Kid Healthy Grants (Applications now open)

  • Game On grants to support physical activity and nutrition initiatives are available, thanks to support from CSX, GoGo squeeZ, Saputo and Target.
  • Parents for Healthy Kids grants are available that focus on implementing Game On, thanks to support from ALDI and our promotional partner, National PTA. Programs with a parent engagement component will be given priority, and parent-led groups are encouraged to apply (e.g. PTAs, PTOs and school wellness teams with parent members). Select Game On grants on our school grants portal and complete the parent-specific questions to get priority points.  

Visit to learn more and apply for a grant. Deadline is Friday, April 7. Access our archived webinars to help you with grant applications.
