Launching Food Resilience Grants

Sustainable Food Places is pleased to announce the opening of a new Food Resilience grant round for SFP members.  

Local food partnerships have delivered vital work through the Covid-19 crisis to meet the food-related needs of local communities hit hardest by the pandemic and its impacts on our food system. In recognition of this, the National Lottery Community Fund and the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation are funding the Sustainable Food Places programme to offer our new Food Resilience grants to SFP Network members. Due to restrictions connected to our funding, unfortunately this grant offer is only available to SFP members in England. 


SFP is offering a total of approximately £300,000 worth of funding over two categories of grants, each to be spent between April 2021 and the end of October 2021. Whilst funded initiatives must be overseen by your food partnership, costs can cover the work of delivery partners that are active in your food partnership.


For full details on the focus and eligibility criteria for these grants have been sent to relevant SFP partnerships. For further information, or to discuss a prospective application, please contact the relevant SFP staff member via the contacts details included in the form.
