Still time to apply for Food Poverty Grant!

Grants up to £5,000 are available to help boost the capacity of organisations to provide good quality, nutritious food to their customers.

Bridgend County Borough Council’s Food Poverty Grant in collaboration with WLGA and administered by BAVO, is made up of capital (equipment) funding primarily and will support organisations to access, store and distribute additional supplies of good quality food.

The fund will help boost the capacity of organisations to provide good quality, nutritious food to their customers. This could include, for example, but not limited to, purchasing fridges, freezers and cooking equipment.

The revenue funding element is a smaller pot of funding but can be used in a variety of ways. These might include developing projects such as social supermarkets, community cafes, healthy cooking classes and luncheon clubs.

It can also be used for taking forward initiatives such as outreach work, training for volunteers (e.g. food handling qualifications) or PAT/COSHH testing or related equipment.

Grants will normally not exceed £5,000, and priority will begin to those organisations currently working on issues of food poverty.
