Grants of £5,000 available to non-profit and community organisations for initiatives that improve the health and sustainability of the city’s food system, e.g. skills and knowledge, food growing, waste and recycling projects.
Applications close midday on 10 March 2023.
To celebrate the launch of the Birmingham Food Revolution in 2023, the Birmingham Food Legends Fund has been created. This is a grant scheme to support initiatives which fit into Birmingham City Council’s vision of creating a fair, sustainable and prosperous food system and economy, where food options are nutritious, affordable and desirable so everyone can thrive. Grants of up to £5,000 will be available, though applications above £5,000 may be accepted if the proposal will have a significant impact on the Birmingham food system.
They will accept applications from not-for-profit organisations whose on the ground work/activities are based in the Birmingham local authority area, such as community groups (including those relating to growing, food provision e.g. community cafés, and composting), Business Improvement Districts, schools, and other organisations in the food sector. Please note that private companies and sole traders are not eligible for this grant. The Council are looking for specific, actionable and timely proposals which, if funded, can move at pace to start work on their proposed projects by the end of March.
Deadline: Midday on 10 March 2023.
