Local food poverty alliances that are members of the programme can apply for up to £5,000 for projects that aim to help increase incomes and reduce costs for people experiencing, or at risk of, food poverty.
Over the coming year Food Power will be encouraging its network of food poverty alliances to take part in a coordinated ‘push’ focused on maximising families’ incomes. The aim is to help increase the amount of money in people’s pockets that is available to spend on food. This push will support food poverty alliances to help improve coordination and navigation of the local welfare safety net to ensure that the most disadvantaged groups are accessing existing support.
As a part of the Food Power Push, member alliances are invited to apply for projects that focus on action related to this work. At the end of the year, we hope that more people experiencing food poverty or at risk of food insecurity will have an increased income and reduced costs, whether through welfare support, income or a combination.
Take part in our webinar from 10:30 - 11:30am on Tuesday 23 January to learn more about the Food Power Push and available financial support. Register for the webinar.
We will aim to fund a spread of projects across the four nations and to support a mix of urban and rural settings. The application period is open from 8 January - 21 February. Please visit the Food Power website for further information about the application process, Food Power Push and eligibility.
If you have any questions, please contact Maddie Guerlain.
