Grant program targets food justice groups

Friday, June 17, 2022 by Tai Moses

The city’s Office of Sustainability is offering a mini-grant program in an effort “to support communities in their efforts to grow, sell, and eat healthy food.” Grants of up to $3,000 will be available for eligible nonprofits, schools, businesses, homeowner associations, faith-based groups and grassroots initiatives. Lucia Athens, chief sustainability officer, said in a news release that creating a more equitable food system requires throwing support behind “community-driven solutions. We are thrilled to offer this grant to the leaders of change addressing food inequities locally.” Dr. Rosamaria Murillo, CEO of El Buen Samaritano, which received a mini-grant last year, said the support “helped us amplify our efforts to provide access to food to our community. One of the major contributors to our health and our wealth is access to food, and justice is about that – it’s about access.” Applications are being accepted through July 22. Find out more.
