Grassroots Grants Program

Grassroots Grants Program

The Feed Appeal Grassroots Grants Program is focussed on supporting local charities to deliver effective and targeted food relief programs to their local community. Funding in the Grassroots Program is focussed on minor infrastructure, quality kitchen equipment, capacity building training and access to food staples that will help organisations meet the demand efficiently and effectively. Funding requests must directly impact and improve your food relief programs and help build the organisations capacity.

Funding requests of between $5,000-$25,000 are available in this program.

Due to the likely hood that demand for grants will exceed total available funds, there is no guarantee that all eligible organisations that meet the application criteria will be successful. Feed Appeal also reserves the right to part fund applications.
