Financial support

Apply for financial support to help develop the work of your food poverty alliance

Any food poverty alliance in the UK that is registered with Food Power is eligible to apply for financial support. Funding rounds for evaluation, engaging experts by experience, developing alliances and the annual theme will be open at various times over the course of the four year programme. Details will be provided below when funding rounds are open for applications. All applications must be submitted through the Food Power member's area.

Financial support offered to date

Since the start of the programme we have invited applications for financial support from allainces to:

  • Develop their food poverty alliance, including research and produce a food poverty action plan or equivalent
  • Deliver pilot projects focused on empowering experts by experience, exploring different approaches to empower those with direct experience of food poverty to play an active role and influence at a strategic level.
  • Run projects that focus on maximising families’ incomes and, in particular, the ways in which alliances can help improve coordination and navigation of the local welfare safety net for people experiencing, or at risk of, food poverty.

Future financial support

Details of any further rounds of financial support will be posted here and publicised via the Food Power communication channels. 


Food Power works with local communities across the UK to strengthen their ability to reduce food poverty and tackle its root causes.
