What is an Impact Grant?
An Impact Grant is a small source of funding granted to an organization to help it overcome a barrier it faces and/or position it to build its own capacity to better provide food assistance to individuals in need.
For example, a small afterschool site might need a new convection oven in order to ramp up its ability to serve kids healthy and appealing meals. A food pantry may need a vehicle to more quickly and frequently pick up food and supplies from the Food Bank and/or other assistance providers. A community distribution site might be unable to host a much-needed distribution until securing funds to mend a roof that has fallen into disrepair.
We call them Impact Grants because we know that even though they are small, these grants create big and lasting impacts. Click here for more information and application guidelines.
