Small grants scheme
Good Food Grants
Good Food Grants is a funding programme that awards small grants for community projects that aim to improve the health, skills and confidence of local residents through healthy eating, increased cookery skills and food growing.
Good Food Grants is now open to applications. Community organisations are invited to apply for grants of up to £850 for food projects in Brighton & Hove.
The deadline for applications is Friday 10th March 2017 at 2pm. Grants will be awarded by 25th April 2017.
This year we will only fund:
· Community growing projects that want to run cooking, growing and healthy eating activities with vulnerable adults*
· Cooking and/or shared meals for people experiencing poverty**
*By vulnerable adults we primarily mean people with learning disabilities or those with experience of homelessness, mental health issues, abuse and addiction.
**We know people in the following groups are most susceptible to food poverty so would welcome applications from projects working with these groups:
· Disabled people (including people with learning disabilities) and people experiencing long term physical or mental ill health
· Large families, single parent families and families with disabled children
· Working people on a low income, especially younger working age people
· Vulnerable adults - including some older people - who are isolated or digitally excluded – or who are experiencing transition e.g. bereavement/ becoming ill/ leaving hospital and people moving from homelessness, offending or addiction
· 16-25 year olds who are vulnerably housed and care leavers
· BME people and migrants who have limited recourse to funds
You can arrange to have an appointment to discuss your application on Mon Jan 23 from 3 - 7pm at the Brighthelm Centre.
If you have any queries, to book an appointment or to get further funding advice on local funds suitable for food projects please contact Helen Starr-Keddle, Harvest Development Officer on 01273 431700.
