Coalfields Food Insecurity Response Fund
The Coalfields Food Insecurity Response Fund is a new fund to tackle food poverty. Projects in the top 30% most deprived former coalfield areas are eligible to apply for a grant of up to £2,500.
Successful applicants will be granted a Company Shop membership to maximise their purchasing power. The discounts offered means for every £10 spent, a project will typically get £30 in goods (if they purchased these goods directly from the retailer). So for a £2,500 award a project could receive goods up to the value of £7,500.
Company Shop will value match any applications that deliver food provision for families and children. If your project supports these groups and is awarded £2,500 by us, Company Shop will commit an additional £2,500 to give you a project value of £5,000.
The nearest Company Shop is in Washington but bulk orders can be delivered.
This is a rolling application process, with no application deadline. The programme will close when all funds have been allocated. Please apply early to avoid disappointment.
