Through the Healthy Deliciousness Fund, Rebel Ventures will provide up to $100.00 to any Philadelphia classroom project that exemplifies a clear plan for promoting a healthier school environment. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis. Rebel Ventures will fund up to 20 classroom projects in Fall of 2019.

 

We encourage any teachers with a project that encourages a healthy school environment to apply. Relevant projects can include making healthy snacks, playing team sports or planting a garden. There are no limitations to your creativity as long as it has a healthy impact on the school.
