Established and emerging local food poverty alliances are being invited to join The Food Power programme, an initiative that aims to strengthen local communities’ ability to reduce food poverty at grassroots level.
This four-year programme is led by Sustain and Church Action on Poverty and will support the development of more sustainable approaches to tackling food poverty. The programme has four funding strands:
- Up to £10,000 to support the development of an alliance, a food poverty action plan and learning visits to other areas
- Up to £5,000 to support initiatives linked to one of the programmes thematic priorities
- Up to £5,000 to support initiatives which empower those affected by food poverty
- Up to £5,000 to evaluate specific responses to food poverty and showcase effective practice.
All partners will be encouraged to raise match funding to maximise the value of the programme.
Invitations to apply to join the programme will made at different points during the lifetime of the programme with interested communities encouraged to sign up to the newsletter to receive regular updates.
