ATLANTA, October 12, 2023 - The Educated Choices Program (ECP) has been named one of Constellation’s Community Champions for the second consecutive year. This grant award will support the development of a new educational package focused on food waste.
The Community Champion grant program has awarded over 2,500 community projects across 28 states, focusing on organizations and initiatives that promote education, the environment, or youth. ECP’s work brings these three facets together, providing free environmental education to millions of students and community members around the world. These educational tools and resources are proven effective, with nearly 50% of viewers reporting making mindful changes to their diets, and impactful, preventing an estimated 2.6 million tonnes of CO2 emissions from being released into the environment.
“The Community Champions Grant from Constellation is a welcome contribution towards our food education programs and will aid us in our ongoing expansion. This grant serves as an inspiring example of how environmentally conscious organizations can collaborate across different sectors to support each other's missions. We consider it a privilege to share our goal of creating a sustainable future with Constellation.” - ECP CEO Lorena Mucke
