McDonald’s 2nd Annual Nutrition Network Fund & Coupon Giveaway CLOSED

Last year I attended the launch of McDonald Nutrition Network, a community outreach initiative to provide grants to local organizations that focus on nutrition programs. I thought it was a great idea and hoped many local community organization applied and took park in the network.

However if an organization didn't get a chance to take part, they have another chance this year.

McDonald’s 2nd Annual Nutrition Network Fund

McDonald’s New York Tri-State area restaurants have announced the return of the McDonald’s New York Metro Nutrition Network. Through the program, New York Tri-State McDonald's restaurant owners are teaming up with Dasani to offer seed money to help local organizations bring nutrition information and guidance to the communities they serve. McDonald’s will be offering $25,000 worth of grant funding, while Dasani will offer an additional $5,000.

In addition to providing seed funding to community organizations, McDonald’s is collaborating with the American Diabetes Association to help consumers make informed decisions at McDonald’s.

“The McDonald’s Tri-State Owner/Operators Association is thrilled to be launching the Nutrition Network program for the second year,” said Anthony Scari, president of the McDonald’s New York Tri-State Owner/Operators Association. “After seeing the response from organizations in need across the Tri-State last year, it’s become increasingly apparent how important it is that we do our part to support organizations that align with our commitment to nutrition awareness.”

The McDonald’s “Commitments to Offer Improved Nutrition Choice” initiative strives to help customers make informed choices. The brand will continue to seek to provide customers with wholesome menu items including the new Egg White Delight McMuffin®, which will be available at participating restaurants nationwide this Spring.

To further educate consumers on wholesome choices, McDonald’s is teaming up with Registered Dietitian Sharon Richter for the second year in order to help spread the nutrition message and show customers how McDonald’s can be incorporated into a balanced diet. Richter will also participate in judging applications submitted by non-profits.

McDonald’s New York Metro Nutrition Network applications will be evaluated based on the expected impact of the proposed program on nutrition awareness in the community. This year, McDonald’s has teamed up with Dasani who will offer an additional grant, so that six organizations will be selected.

Each winning organization will be acknowledged with a presentation in their community. The submission deadline is May 15, 2013. Tri-State area non-profit organizations can find the application at www.McDNYMetroNutritionNetwork.com
