Funding for Healthy Eating Projects (Scotland)
Community Food and Health Scotland (CFHS) has announced that its Annual Development Fund (formerly known as the small grant scheme) will re-open for applications on the 1st June 2018.
Grants ranging from £500 to £3,000 will be available to groups and agencies who would like to tackle one or more of the barriers to healthy eating, such as affordability or availability, and the negative impact of culture and lack of food skills.
CFHS welcome applications from local groups or agencies working with and within low-income communities throughout Scotland including from agencies such as the NHS, schools or other local authority organisations if they work closely with community groups.
The closing date for applications will be the 6th July 2018.
Projects funded in the past include:
- Carrick Academy MC2/Maybole Youth Club who received a grant of £3,327.82 for growing, healthy eating and green gym project.
- North Perth Community School which received a grant of £1448.00 for a cooking skills project.
