Food Poverty Grant (Caerphilly) - now open for applications!

Updated: Apr 23, 2020

Michelle Turner, our Food Poverty Link Officer will be helping Food Bank outlets and other food poverty initiatives to extend and improve their services, and support them to link users with services delivered by the Statutory, Public and Private Sector in Caerphilly borough.

The Food Poverty Small Grant is now open for applications - Michelle will be able to help with bids for this Scheme and support with improving their sustainability.

To view the criteria and apply see our Funding page.

Here are some key points:

  • Your organisation must have a bank account in its own name

  • You cannot claim for costs already incurred

  • Your application must be submitted by 31 July 2020

  • If your grant is approved, spending must be complete and funding drawn down by 30 September 2020

This is a valuable opportunity for you to think about what your local community needs, and how you could develop your service to help alleviate food poverty for the people you support.

If you would like to have a chat with Michelle (GAVO Food Poverty Link Officer) about the grant and what it could mean for your organisation / group, or if you would like support with making your application, please get in touch via email michelle.turner@gavo.org.uk or mobile 07483 128080.
