Over the summer, Co-op customers raised £1.5m to help those going hungry by buying items from their picnic range, with 20p per item being donated to the National Emergencies Trust (NET). NET are working with 46 local Community Foundations to distribute this money to food charities and community causes to fund programmes that provide access to food and sustainable solutions to food poverty.
This funding will support food programmes for vulnerable communities across Devon with a focus on foodbanks and provision of emergency meals for people affected by the coronavirus outbreak.
Funding of £1,000 – £3,000 is available to eligible organisations. Payment of grants for successful applications will be made in early December 2020 with a grant period of 6 months. The grant must be spent by 31st May 2021.
Please note – application deadline is 13th November at 5pm!
