The Porirua Community Trust has announced the three winners of its special impact grants, totalling $104,000.

The grants are aimed at organisations wanting to make a positive social and environmental impact.

The three are: Porirua's WELLfed (facilitating social change using food education); The Graeme Dingle Foundation (piloting a new version of Project K in Porirua, which will help transform the lives of youth); the Titahi Bay Community Group (developing native coastal gardens and protecting species at three coastal sites at Whitireia Park, Pukerua Bay coastal reserve and Paekakariki).

WELLfed spokeswoman Rebecca Moraghan described the news as "a total game-changer" for WELLfed.

Graeme Dingle Foundation chief executive Jenny Stiles said staff felt "incredibly grateful" to the trust for allowing them to broaden the number of students eligible for Project K.

The scheme is typically a 14-month programme for Year 10 students that has three core components; wilderness adventure, community challenge and mentoring.

While the impact grants have closed, funding for causes or community groups is available through Trust House Foundation grants. See www.porirua
