Early Grant Information for NGOs

In addition to addressing the issue of food insecurity, grant-funded projects conserve natural resources and prevent greenhouse gas emissions by preventing food from going to waste and keeping it out of landfill. Also eligible for funding are projects that eliminate the wasting of edible food through product or process redesign.

The Food Waste Prevention & Recovery Grant Focus Area provides funding for innovative projects that incorporate activities that prevent food from going to waste and/or recover edible surplus food to feed people through food donation.
