Next round of Seed Grant applications will be available in Spring 2020.
Seed grants are intended to encourage the development of projects that support innovative ways of confronting emergency food/or nutrition needs of people with low incomes. There are three categories Seed Grants specifically target:
Resource Enhancement and Community Partnerships: Projects that increase or enhance emergency food resources or create a diversified resource base through community partnerships. Examples of community partnerships include projects to develop and/or utilize food growers, farmers’ markets, community and urban garden programs, or other community resources.
Organizational Capacity and Effectiveness: Projects that increase organizational capacity and effectiveness to provide emergency food services and access to healthy foods. Examples are projects that provide resources, technical assistance and/or training to emergency food relief organizations for fundraising, bookkeeping, volunteer services, or other areas specific to emergency food services.
Linkage to Services: Projects that can link emergency food providers and their guests to services that could reduce dependence on emergency food. Examples include projects to expand outreach referral services to connect at risk individuals to medical care and social services and technology to develop training programs for at risk individuals to create linkages and increase skills for future.
