The Soil Association are offering small grants to support community led food growing, cooking and sharing activity and Get Togethers. They are looking for projects that bring people of different backgrounds and/or ages together to strengthen and connect communities through one or more of food growing, cooking and food sharing.
“We are offering small grants of £150 to enable you to host a good food Get Together in your community. The money can either be used for activity costs (for example, seeds, transport, technology, food etc.) or equipment (for example, induction hobs, fridges, durable gardening tools, etc.).
“From funding for your cooking or growing activity, to tools and materials to bring together your community, we can help you get your Get Together off the ground.”
