Increase Food Security Among Young Children (0-5 Years Old) Grant Opportunity

Purpose: No Kid Hungry knows that community organizations, early child care centers and healthcare providers play a key role in ensuring young children receive access to nutritious food they need to learn, grow and thrive to reach their full potential. These flexible grants will allow community-based organizations, early child care centers and healthcare providers across the country to respond to the growing needs and emerging opportunities to provide healthy food to young children (0-5 years old) and their families facing food insecurity.
Receipt Date: Applications are due on December 18, 2020. A webinar will be held on December 3rd at 2pm-3pm EST to respond to any questions you may have. Zoom info here – https://strength.zoom.us/j/93344888243
Total Awards: $15,000-$25,000
Eligibility: The coronavirus pandemic has exacerbated long-standing systemic health, social and economic inequities, disproportionately impacting racial and ethnic minority groups. To ensure we are supporting individuals and communities most impacted, we will prioritize grant funds to organizations and projects serving majority-minority communities, including immigrant populations. We are especially eager to support organizations who have authentically engaged the community to develop innovative programs.
