Quaker Oats Announces New Grant Program to Help Combat Hunger

As part of its Quaker Go Project, Quaker Oats has announced a new grant program to support people working to combat hunger at the community level.

The Quaker Go Grant program will select twenty winners each month from April through August 2009. Winners will each receive a $500 cash grant to fund their projects. One hundred grant recipients will be selected in total.

Applicants are invited to submit an online application form with a brief description of their project. A selection committee will review the applications submitted each month and award Quaker Go Grants based on the project's originality/uniqueness, relevance to fighting hunger, and potential impact on the community/individuals involved.

The program is open to residents of the fifty United States and the District of Columbia who are at least 18 years of age as of March 9, 2009.

To be considered for each month's grants, submissions must be received by March 31, 2009; April 30, 2009; May 31, 2009; June 30, 2009; and July 31, 2009. All applications not selected as winners will be considered in the next month's round of judging.
