Food for the Planet grants on the menu

New funding is now available for sustainable food projects through Sustain and the Food for the Planet project.

Sustain campaigns for a healthy and sustainable food system, which is publicly accountable and socially and environmentally responsible.

Grants of up to £5,000 are available to any community group or local food partnership to support communities to campaign and advocate to make food in their area better for people and the planet. Applicants are encouraged to propose their own ideas for great local action, but should focus on areas that have a big impact locally, for example:

  • Supporting groups and communities that are marginalised to campaign for food climate justice and tackling racial injustice in the food system
  • Encouraging climate-friendly food in public institutions and council settings
  • Supporting sustainable farming systems through planning policy
  • Tackling unfair and unhelpful pricing and advertising of the most climate-damaging foods

The deadline for applications is 10th February 2023, and you can find more information on the Sustain website.
