Pilot Light is excited to announce that we received a grant from The A. Montgomery Ward Foundation, an organization known for their contributions in giving grants to charitable organizations and institutions that promote the arts, culture, humanities, and education. Past grant recipients include the Museum of Science and Industry, Dominican University, and Ann and Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago Foundation. The A. Montgomery Ward Foundation also supports nutrition education initiatives in the Chicago area.
We are honored to receive this award, which will contribute to our goal to empower children to make healthier choices through our food and nutrition education curriculum. The A. Montgomery Ward Foundation’s support of Pilot Light will help us expand our curriculum to reach new grade levels -‑ and many more students — within our partner schools. With the support of the Foundation and our other partners, we’re on the road to feeding more young minds throughout Chicago.
