McDonald's New York Tri-State Owners Launch Local Nutrition Network to Support Community Programs
McDonald's New York Tri-State area restaurants have announced the launch of the McDonald's New York Metro Nutrition Network, a new community outreach initiative to provide funds to local organizations for grassroots nutrition programs.
Through the program, New York Tri-State McDonald's restaurant owners are offering seed money to help local organizations bring nutrition information and guidance to the communities they serve. The initiative is an extension of McDonald's national commitment to offer improved nutrition choices.
Funds will be awarded to jumpstart or enhance projects designed to bring an understanding of good nutrition and healthy eating to tri-state area communities. Applications will be evaluated based on the impact of the proposed program on nutrition awareness in the community, the sustainability of the effort, the organization's program track record (i.e., past successes), and the creativity of the program design.
Applicants must be nonprofit 501(c)(3) organizations.
This year, five organizations will be selected and each winning organization will receive $5,000 in funding for their community nutrition project.
Complete program information and the application form are available at the McDonald's New York Metro Nutrition Network Web site.
