We are currently accepting applications for the microgrants (application and details in the attached form), and would be grateful if you would share this opportunity with any individuals, small-businesses or non-profits you know who may be interested in applying. In general, we welcome applications from sustainable food projects that support one or more of the following areas (additional criteria are listed in the attached form).
(1) Children and Food: Projects that seek to increase the number of children who have access to real food in schools, learn where food comes from, and have experience growing, cooking and sharing it
(2) Healthy Food Access: Projects that seek to increase access to affordable, real food in low-income communities
(3) Promoting Regional Biodiversity: Projects that seek to increase, protect and promote biodiverse food and farming traditions that are an alternative to the industrial food system
Microgrant applications must be received by May 27, 2011 and instructions are in the attached form. Finalists will be notified by email and will be invited to present their projects at an upcoming C.A.F.E. dinner, where winners will be selected by community vote.
Any questions can be directed to Ben Hecht by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks for sharing this wonderful opportunity with the Denver community, and we hope to see you at a C.A.F.E. dinner this year!
