Applications Open for Food for the Planet Grants

Funding for projects which create meaningful change to local food systems and promote climate justice in the UK.

As part of its wider Food for the Planet project, Sustain has reopened its small grants programme which aims to support communities to make food in their area better for people and planet.

Grants of up to £5,000 are on offer to Sustainable Food Partnerships, local authorities and community and campaign groups in the UK.

Eligible activities could include:

  • Supporting groups and communities that are marginalised to campaign for food climate justice and tackling racial injustice in the food system.
  • Encouraging climate-friendly food in public institutions and council settings.
  • Supporting sustainable farming systems through planning policy.
  • Tackling unfair and unhelpful pricing and advertising of the most climate-damaging foods.

Grants can cover costs associated with the delivery of projects.

There will be an introductory workshop for interested applicants on 16 January 2023 at 2pm.

The deadline to apply is 5pm on 10 February 2023.
