Co-op Food Fund

Closing date: 13 November 2020.

This fund has been developed in partnership with the National Emergencies Trust and the Co-op to support sustainable food poverty programmes.

Voluntary and community organisations, including but not limited to: 

  • registered charities, including charitable incorporated organisations;
  • constituted organisations and non-registered charities;
  • community interest companies and community benefit societies (community foundations can use their own policy);
  • parish and town councils (if the funded activity is not deemed part of their statutory duties);
  • Parent Teacher Associations (PTAs);
  • churches and other religious organisations (if the funded activity is not deemed to be proselytising).  

 The types of programmes that this funding could support are, but not limited to:

  • Foodbanks;
  • Programmes that tackle food waste;
  • Programmes that encourage healthy eating;
  • Holiday hunger schemes.

The grant amount that organisations can apply for will be set at a local level so applicants will need to check with their local community foundation before applying. The vast majority of grants awarded will likely to be between £2,000 and £10,000 but in some cases a community foundation might award a larger grant to an organisation that is covering a larger geographic area or leading on a coordinated partnership response.
