Food poverty is a major issue on both a local and global level and, with the continuation of Brexit uncertainty and COVID-19, the levels of deprivation are likely to increase further. In particular, this fund aims to assist organisations to be able to manage larger amounts of fresh food, boosting its capacity to provide good quality, nutritious food to those using their services.
The Programme is open for applications from Friday, 21 August 2020 with a deadline for submission of 5pm on Tuesday, 15 September 2020.
Aim of the Programme
This grant is a short-term fund from Welsh Government aimed at enhancing and increasing existing provisions for tackling this issue across Cardiff. The grant is solely for capital costs to enable organisations to access, store and distribute additional supplies of good quality food.
Grants of up to £5,000 per organisation are available. The money must be spent by the 31 October 2020 with evidence of spend being submitted to C3SC by the 5 November 2020.
