Due March 1: Community Food Rescue Mini-Grants

The Community Food Rescue Mini-Grants Program is back, with support from Montgomery County Department of Health and Human Services, the Mead Family Foundation, and Burness!  There are opportunities to receive grants for improving capacity and infrastructure of the local food recovery system, as well as for inventive and collaborative approaches in food recovery. The Mini-Grants process will be managed again this year by Intentional Philanthropy and Manna Food Center, with the generous support of the Mead Family Foundation. Applications can be requested from astoria@intentionalphilanthropy.com and are due by Tuesday, March 1, 2016.

This Mini-Grants Program will amplify efforts underway by Community Food Rescue (CFR), a network coordinated by Manna Food Center to develop a food recovery system throughout Montgomery County, Maryland. Please become familiar with the goals and approaches of CFR by visiting www.communityfoodrescue.org.  This network enhances the good work of businesses, agencies, and organizations that already recover perfectly good food before it is thrown away by building capacity through grants, training and other resources.
