Employees from the San Juan Bautista Monsanto site selected San Benito High School and San Benito Ag in the Classroom to receive a total of $9,000 in grants from the Monsanto Fund’s 2015 site grant initiative, according to an announcement from the company. Representatives from these organizations and the fund celebrated the grants with check presentations.
According to announcement on the matter:
San Benito High School will use a $4,000 grant to make upgrades to an outdoor garden by purchasing raised garden beds for students to grow crops and develop new learning laboratories. San Benito Ag in the Classroom will use a $5,000 grant to support the Harvest of the Month program, which provides monthly samples of a local fruit or vegetables to 3,500 local students, along with education about the crop and its health benefits.
This is the first year employees at the San Juan Bautista site have partnered with San Benito Ag in the Classroom, but employees chose to support the Harvest of the Month program because of its reach and impact. San Benito High School has worked with the site since 2008 for various projects, including the purchase of a mower for the school orchard.
This year, the Monsanto Fund awarded $1.2 million to nonprofit organizations through the site grant initiative to help address critical community needs.
