The NHS Forth Valley Nutrition and Dietetic Health Improvement Team has announced their Food Activity Grant is open for applications.
Funds range from £50 for short term pieces of work, and up to £400 for larger projects.
Applications will be considered from organisations across Forth Valley, particularly those addressing inequalities within vulnerable communities; however, grants may not cover the costs of Food Hygiene Training.
Please note that funding is not available for one-off events, or for those providing food to others.
All applications must show combinations of increasing cooking skills, making a difference or identified benefits for the participants involved in the project, and (if relevant) include ideas of how the project might continue after the funding has ended, such as training of staff and volunteers.
Grants are approved for periods of up to 12 months and are not renewable. All activities must be completed and evaluated.
The deadline for applications to the current round of funding is Sunday 15th September.
Applicants are advised to read the following guidance documents:
