Small Grants, Resources and Training for Foodbanks in Somerset
Somerset Community Foundation is offering small grants, helpful resources and training to assist foodbanks in Somerset to promote healthy eating and the deadline to apply is Thursday 31 August.
Andy Ridgewell, Programmes Manager at Somerset Community Foundation said: “Foodbanks provide vital emergency food to families and some go beyond this, by also providing advice and support to their clients. These grants will help Somerset’s foodbanks make the most of the interactions they have with local people, in order to promote affordable, healthier diets.”
The staff and volunteers of participating foodbanks will take part in a one-hour online eLearning module or a more extensive face-to-face training over two sessions, and will also receive healthy eating resources and a £500 grant.
