In early April of this year, we published a blog about Grants for Nutrition Education. But there’s much more to the field of food and nutrition grants. Check out these top five most common food and nutrition grant categories, with funding opportunities included for each category.
Food pantries might be the organizations that require the most diverse resources to function properly. We get requests from agencies to find grants for everything from actual food to gardens for growing food to new buildings to kitchen equipment. An additional layer that increases the variety of grant funding needed is that some food banks provide non-perishable food, some provide hot meals, and some provide both. Thus, while the specific needs of food pantries vary widely, their general need is consistently great. According to the USDA, 1 in 6 people in America face hunger. Below we have gathered some grants to help fill some of these great needs.
