Healthy Eating Success Stories

Many successful and innovative projects and initiatives have been implemented that address barriers to eating healthy throughout Minnesota. However, due to various constraints such as organizational size or staff capacity, there are often fewer resources available to promote such successes.  This funding aims to highlight the outcomes and lessons of completed or ongoing healthy eating programs, and to promote them, potentially inspiring replication and/or adaptation of those successes. Apply by August 7, 2017.

We are seeking to fund organizations to tell the success story of their healthy eating project in a unique and innovative way. The success stories project will use persuasive, tailored communications and powerful personal narratives that will deliver positive community-based healthy eating messages.

Proposals are due no later than 1:00 p.m.  CDT on August 7, 2017; use the online application system at: No hand-delivered, mailed, telephone or facsimile proposals will be considered.

Wednesday, July 19 at 1 p.m.: Optional information session for applicants. A webinar will provide several examples of communications projects and will give you the opportunity to ask questions. Blue Cross will also make a version of the webinar available on the Center for Prevention’s website.

Monday, August 7 at 1 p.m.: Deadline for submission of proposals.

Tuesday, September 5 2017: Notification of funding decisions.
