Arkansas Community Foundation is seeking proposals for projects that will increase Arkansans’ access to locally grown and produced foods and/or strengthen the local food ecosystem, including:

Programs that help Arkansas-based small farmers and food producers connect to markets, build operational capacity (for example, through training, certification, support for back-office financial management) or expand production.
Programs that pilot innovative strategies to connect Arkansans to more locally grown produce, either at market rate (for example, online farmers markets) or through emergency food distribution for those experiencing food insecurity.
Funding Information

Grants will range from $10,000 to $15,000.

Project personnel (staff or key volunteers) who have experience with food production, farming, food business marketing or emergency food distribution
What they are not looking for?

Each request is considered on its own merit. However, the following types of requests will not be considered:

Community gardening programs that are primarily focused on teaching gardening skills or offering a place for neighbors to garden for their own personal use. While these programs are important, this grant opportunity is more focused on increasing wider community access to locally grown food, either through bringing more food to market or significant distribution to people experiencing food insecurity.
PK-12 school gardens that are primarily for educational purposes rather than significant food production.
