Nationwide School Grant Program Begins Its Third Year; Over $600,000

OAKLAND, Calif., Nov. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Art Smith, author and chef, is looking for a few good moms -- those devoted to getting their kids and their communities to love eating vegetables. Chef Smith and the makers of Hidden Valley(R) Salad Dressings will host a Love Your Veggies(TM) retreat for winners of the "Search for Veggie Champions Contest," which begins today. The goal is to help moms everywhere raise veggie-loving kids.

For a chance to win a spot at Chef Smith's retreat moms must complete a simple application at LoveYourVeggies.com. Ten winners will enjoy an all-expense-paid trip to Chicago from April 28 to April 29 for two days of fun and educational workshops, field trips, cooking demonstrations and tastings with some of America's most notable food, gardening and nutrition experts. To ensure a little pampering along the way, winners will receive accommodations for three nights, a spa visit and dinner at Chef Smith's own Table Fifty-Two restaurant. Each retreat winner will also receive $5,000 to start or improve a vegetable garden in her hometown. The winner must designate a non-profit organization to which the $5,000 prize money will be awarded and with whom the community garden will be planted or improved.

Chef Smith designed the retreat to cover topics that educate moms on how to introduce and involve kids in a healthy eating experience, including vegetable education, gardening, meal planning and shopping, and cooking. The information taught at the retreat will be made available for all parents on LoveYourVeggies.com.
