Funding to Promote Healthy Eating Within Low Income Communities (Scotland)

28 August 2017

Community Food & Health Scotland, which aims to promote healthy eating habits within low-income communities, has announced that its Capacity Building Fund is open to applications.

Through the Capacity Development Fund, organisations such as community groups, voluntary organisations and social enterprises can apply for grants of up to £500 for training or learning opportunities for staff, volunteers, or management committee or board members.

To be eligible the applicant organisations must already involved in running a food and health activity, for example, a community café, cookery classes, healthy eating sessions, a fruit and vegetable stall, a food delivery scheme; and working with people in a low-income community. "Community" can mean working with a group with a common interest (such as people with a mental wellbeing issue or people affected by homelessness) or people living or working in the same area.

The closing date is the 8th December 2017 (or earlier, if all of the funding available has been allocated before then).
