CORPUS CHRISTI - Stripes Convenience Stores is looking to share its secret, handmade recipe for salsa with the brightest minds of tomorrow.
The company has announced a new program for elementary school students, to teach them about fresh vegetables, and it's all done through a grant offered by the Stripes Fresh Learning Garden seeded by Laredo Taco Company. The Stripes Fresh Learning Garden will give students in a hands-on experience in understanding where food comes from, along with teaching them the value of using fresh foods.
Here's how it works: Stripes Stores will accept applications to award $200 grants to public elementary schools to plant the seeds that will be the ingredients for tomorrow's pico de gallo. Grant applications will be accepted until April 20th, 2014 at 5 PM. Teachers interested in applying should visit www.stripesstores.com/giving_back/garden-grant.
Selected schools will also receive a "Get a Fresh Start Teachers' Appreciation Breakfast Party" from Stripes Stores.
Awards will be handed out by September 1st, 2014. A limit of one grant may be awarded per teacher per school.
